De­vel­oper of­fload­ing hol­i­day pad

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS - ALEISHA DAW­SON

WEALTHY Vic­to­rian prop­erty de­vel­oper Colin DeLutis has put his lux­ury Surfers Par­adise apart­ment on the mar­ket.

The CEO of DeGroup and for­mer vice-pres­i­dent of the Carl­ton Football Club bought the Glit­ter Strip res­i­dence in 2008 – it was the late prop­erty de­vel­oper Ed­die Korn­hauser’s prop­erty.

The 503sq m three-bed­room apart­ment is on the sixth level of the Al­lunga tower on Han­lan St, above the Par­adise Cen­tre Shop­ping Cen­tre.

“He (Korn­hauser) built the Par­adise Cen­tre and built Al­lunga in the early ’80s,” Mr DeLutis said.

“I bought it off his chil­dren and am the sec­ond owner.” The prop­erty was used as a hol­i­day home for Mr DeLutis, his wife, and their two chil­dren.

“We ren­o­vated when we bought it and it has been used for three to four weeks a year and kept it in re­ally good con­di­tion,” he said.

“It’s prac­ti­cally brand new.” Mr DeLutis owns an­other apart­ment in the Al­lunga tower and also splashed $5.25 mil­lion on a pent­house at Mer­maid Beach ear­lier this year.

“I love the Gold Coast and have al­ways been a fan of the city,” he said.

“After you come out of Mel­bourne it’s al­ways nice to come to the Coast – sun­shine, great restau­rants, the beaches – and at the end of the day it’s a great place to come for a hol­i­day.”
