Daniel Faigen, Hirch & Faigen Director, added the appointment launches Yves to the next stage of the delivery process.

“This is the third time we have partnered with Hutchies on our Gold Coast projects and we’re delighted to have the team on board to bring our latest vision, Yves, to life,” he said.

“Hutchies have an infallible reputation across the construction industry, and a great balance sheet to back it up, which offers certainty and peace of mind to our buyers.”

The project is expected to employ about 200 workers at peak, with an average of 100 – 120 workers on site and 40 – 50 offsite during the construction program, expected to take 2.5 years.

The appointment comes off a strong run of sales, with 50% sold during just a few months. This has fast-tracked the construction process.

Upon completion, Yves will be home to 145 residences over 26 levels, with high-end residential amenities.

The other two Yves and Hirsch & Faigen projects include the $75 million Hemingway Palm Beach and $85 million Emerson Kirra developments.
