Two set to tango on Broadbeach development
ADEVELOPMENT application has been lodged for a new $85m, 24-storey luxury tower on the Broadbeach beachfront.
Located in the quiet Broadbeach Park quarter at 21 Broadbeach Blvd, the project will be a joint venture between Gold Coast developer QNY Group, headed by Anthony Quinn, and Melbourne-based construction giant Glenvill Developments, it’s first on the Coast.
Rising to 24 levels, the project will feature 19 whole-floor apartments and two penthouses split over four levels, all with seas views, along with a rooftop deck and glass-edge pool for residents use.
The building has been designed by Contreras Earl Architecture, whose cofounder Rafael Contreras Morales spent seven years working for world-renowned Zaha Hadid Architects.
Mr Quinn said the Broadbeach tower would be an architectural statement.
“This site is like no other on the Gold Coast and we wanted the design to reflect its uniqueness,” Mr Quinn said.
“We’ve worked closely with the architects, along with Form Landscape Architects, to come up with a design that will coexist with the natural environment, while delivering a landmark that enhances the aesthetic of this leafy Broadbeach Boulevard corner.”
Len Warson, CEO of Glenvill Developments, said he had collaborated on all aspects of the project from the outset.
“We don’t do generic and being involved in the project from the start meant I could contribute to the design and creation of a unique development outcome, perfect for the area,” he said.
“As developers we have a social responsibility to create a built environment that’s enduring – not just for the buyers or for the resale – but for the broader community.”
While the project is the first foray into the Sunshine State for Glenvill, Mr Warson said it would not be the last.
