Sometimes you have to pinch yourself. It’s not always like this. And it won’t always be.

But it is, for now.

While Homecorp has sold $100 million of its Eve Residences in its first week on the market, Aniko Group has sold 60% of its Athena Residences first stage, while penthouses have sold for $5.99 million in La Mer and $9.5 million at the Monaco.

Whatever way you look at it, the Gold Coast property market is looking pretty hot right now.

Homecorp’s $100M sales in first week

Homecorp Property Group has recorded an incredible $100 million in sales for its $150m Eve Residences, just one week after receiving the green light from Gold Coast City Council to deliver the project.

108 apartments have been sold, while an additional 16 are under expressions of interest, poised to add another $15 million. Apartment sales ranged from $450,000 to $1,850,000.

“We’re immensely excited to have received council approval so we can begin progressing our plans to bring these exceptional residences to life,” said Ron Bakir, CEO of Homecorp.

“Based [on] the significant enquiry we received prior to the launch, the sales rate has just been phenomenal. We have had tremendous interest from local, Brisbane and interstate buyers driven by the incredible nature of the project, amazing amenities, and incredible value.”

Eve Residences has been designed by award-winning architecture firm DBI, and will comprise 155 residences, including 86 two-bedroom apartments, 51 three-bedroom apartments, 16 sub-penthouses and two penthouses.

A private lift will also provide exclusive access for residents of its upper levels 20 to 24 and the tower’s basement will offer parking for 281 cars.

Gold Coast-based developer Homecorp Property Group has delivered more than $1.5 billion in residential developments since 2004.

60% Athena sells out

Just three weeks after launching to the market, 60% of Athena Residences’ first stage has been snapped up by eager buyers.

The first release of Athena Residences encompasses 122 units – including two-bedroom and study, and three-bedroom Skyhomes – ranging in price from $479,000 to $1.5 million.

Athena Residences provides an adaptive layout typically unseen in apartment floorplans, allocating additional space to allow for the choice of working from home, plus the resort-style facilities and the abundance of open space and greenery which covers 60% of the site.

“We are humbled and encouraged by this continued demand and support for our luxury waterfront apartment living in Hope Island. We are fortunate to be able to meet the market’s expectations once again with an exceptional collection of high-end homes at Athena Residences,”

Aniko Group founder, George Mastrocostas

“Our sales program has steadily continued its pace from 1 Grant Avenue to Athena Residences unabated, which serves to confirm our deep-rooted belief in Hope Island as the leading residential precinct for luxury waterfront downsizer living.”

La Mer penthouse sells $5.99M

The two-story penthouse at Main Beach’s latest offering, La Mer, is now officially off the market having been bought by a local Gold Coast couple for $5,990,000.

Taking up the top two levels of the 34-level project, the penthouse has been fully customised by the new owners who worked closely with the developer and the architect to create a bespoke floorplan.

NPA Projects director Andrew Erwin said the new owners had completely transformed the original plans for the penthouse with the finished apartment set to be the “jewel in the crown”.

“The couple noted they had looked into many developments in the area but hadn’t quite found the right project for them,” said Mr Erwin.

“After exploring the apartment options available at La Mer, they reviewed the floorplans and the state-of-the-art 3D walk-through and put down an Expression Of Interest on the spot.”

Construction at La Mer is expected to commence in late 2021, with the builder to be appointed soon.

$9.5m Monaco penthouse sale

A locked-down Sydney buyer has snapped up the penthouse in ‘The Monaco’ for $9.5 million as developer Ignite Projects pushes forward with construction next week ahead of an imminent sell-out.

Two years in the making, the Ignite project is being built by McNab Builders opposite the Southport Yacht Club, and near the Spit.

“The Monaco in many ways represents the renaissance of Main Beach, with the building replacing an aging unit block and a well-known house, referred to locally as the ‘container home’,” said Ignite Projects managing director Josh Foote.

“The building is setting a new standard for the suburb, which is getting a well-deserved facelift thanks to the $205 million revitalisation of the Spit to turn it into the Gold Coast’s version of Hyde Park and a 300-berth marina at The Southport Yacht Club.”

The penthouse sale caps off a buying rush with all but one of the 24 residences in the $110 million building sold with an average sale price of $4.6 million.
