Spirit set to soar on the Gold Coast
Spirit will include 2700sq m of residents’ facilities over 3 floors, including pools, bars, a cocktail lounge, banquet room and an extravagant wine and champagne cellar. Panoramic views from the rooftop will stretch some 52kms
THE battle for the title of Queensland’s tallest residential tower is about to heat up, with Spirit set to rise on the Gold Coast.
The $1.2 billion, 89-storey Spirit will consist of 479 luxury residences, and will be built on the iconic former Iluka site in central Surfers Paradise.
It will rise 303m in to the sky, and while technically shy of the 322.5m Q1 tower, a height which includes its impressive spire, Spirit will boast the highest residential living spaces.
“We’re all systems go to create what we believe will be one of the world’s iconic residential towers for many years to come,” Mr Xiao, of Chinese-based conglomerate Forise Holdings, said.
“We have completed a major civils program to establish the foundations of Spirit and we are looking forward to delivering an iconic, globally recognised apartment tower of distinction to Australia’s premier beachfront address.
“We will be launching Spirit to the market in July and there is great anticipation for this both from within Australia and internationally.”
The building has been designed by DBI Design, which has offices in Abu Dhabi, the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. The firm has described the building’s design as “bringing a new level of luxury that is yet to be seen in Australia.”
Spirit will include 2700sq m of residents’ facilities over 3 floors, including pools, bars, a cocktail lounge, banquet room and an extravagant wine and champagne cellar. Panoramic views from the rooftop will stretch some 52kms.
Retail services will be located on levels one to three.
The project is being marketed by Ray White Surfers Paradise Group, and the company’s projects arm, Ray White Projects, which is headed by Julian Sutherland.
“We’ve got the amazing transformation of the Star Casino and now the emergence of what will be one of the world’s most unique and definable residential projects in Spirit,” Mr Sutherland said.
“Projects such as these profoundly demonstrate that the Gold Coast has arrived as a world leading tourism and lifestyle destination in the midst of some $30 billion in public and private development.”
Prices are yet to be released, but Mr Sutherland said the apartments would be “comparable to the average beachfront prices in Broadbeach” but with more luxury inclusions and facilities.
