Plans for a new luxury $200 million beachfront residential tower in Surfers Paradise have been unveiled.

The development application for the 2-4 Wharf Road project was lodged with the City of Gold Coast earlier this month by developer Golden Gate Property.

The plans include 35 whole floor residences, a two-storey sub-penthouse, a three-storey penthouse, as well as a 450 square metre stand-alone beach house.

Architectural firm Rothelowman claims that the parametric design tools, wind engineering and modeling technology used to design the building’s facade is one of the first times it has been applied to a residential building anywhere in the world.

Golden Gate Property director of development David Whiteman said Wharf Rd aims to fill a gap in the region’s ultra-premium apartment market.

“We are delivering an internationally recognised project for the Gold Coast which, through delivering a combination of iconic design, an ultimate beachfront location and ultra high-end facilities, unquestionably defines the new meaning of exclusive beachfront living,” he said.

“We didn’t want it to look like a tower of glass, we wanted the design to really celebrate living on the beach and appreciate Rothelowman’s subtropical approach of designing each sky residence to open up like a traditional old Queenslander.”

Rothelowman associate principal Jonothan Cowle said the design aimed to reflect the culture and environment of the local area.

“We started with the idea of a beach house in the sky - a place with a veranda, offering protection from the summer sun, a place to linger, a garden, a place where one can enjoy the weather, the love of the environment, a place to revel in the playfulness of the coast,” he said.

“We wanted the tower to touch the ground so lightly it would seem to be dancing upon the sands. A tower so exactly tailored to its environment, that is couldn’t exist in any other place, but the coast of beautiful Surfers Paradise.”
