Drink in the view at Pask’s old pad
THE Gold Coast sub-penthouse the late billionaire Nev Pask lived in for nearly 30 years is set to go under the hammer next month.
Mr Pask, 87, who passed away in February, bought his Main Beach apartment in 1989. He used the 485sq m residence on the 15th level of the Silverpoint tower as his family base.
“This apartment is a one off – made for the family as a special request,” said Ray White Surfers Paradise’s Robert Graham, who is marketing the property.
“The family identified Silverpoint as the building for them and had the developer create the residence.”
“Usually sub-penthouses are reserved on the higher floors and they can sometimes feel disconnected and out of touch being so high.”
Mr Pask’s four-bedroom apartment features balconies from every room with a 360degree view of the Gold Coast as well as a bar and three separate living areas.
“There are only a handful of apartments on the whole Coast that can boast four bedrooms that occupy an entire floor,” Mr Graham said.
“As history has shown it will probably be some time before another one like this becomes available.
“They just don’t make them like this anymore.”
Some of the city’s top business identities own properties in the prestigious building, they include “highrise honcho” Harry Triguboff and Aussie Home Loans CEO James Symond.
During a business career that spanned six decades, Mr Pask built a property and development empire estimated to be worth $1.02 billion. His career as a property developer began when he started buying, renovating and selling old homes.
Mr Pask went on to develop more than 2000 housing blocks, apartments, car yards and other commercial sites throughout Queensland and Melbourne.
The sub-penthouse at 28/3510 Main Beach Pde, Main Beach, will be auctioned next month; the luxury apartment was owned by late billionaire Nev Pask (below).
