Lifestyle developer Bottega Group has been granted development approval for the Broadbeach development project 123OBR. 

The development comprises 14 vertical beach houses’ across 17 floors, designed by globally-renowned architects Woods Bagot.

Once complete, the 646 square metre site will boast a ground level five bedroom beach house set over two floors including a private pool; plus 12 full floor homes and a double- storey penthouse. 

123OBR is part of a project pipeline across three sites for the local Queenslanders, who are currently in due diligence on a number of diversified assets across the eastern seaboard of Australia.

Revealing the first design details for 123OBR, Bottega Group managing director Nick Malloch said he and his Bottega Group partners were thrilled to enable a true design collaboration come to life.

 “We wanted 123OBR to feature a vertical stack of beach houses that not only catered for the luxury end of the market, but also offered a design aesthetic that evoked a playful, nautical reference, given its proximity to the beach and the ocean.”

Woods Bagot associate principal David Lee said collaborating with Bottega was a rare opportunity to create a true landmark that would impact the community.

“A home designed with careful consideration of the future resident, and its neighbourhood, and executed with expert craftmanship, carries a sense of permanence,” said David.

“These homes are here for the long run – they will age gracefully in the everchanging coastal environment.”

The architecture of the slender tower is defined by sculpted, raft-like balconies – articulated slab edges that mimic the sand, shaped to provide privacy, but still maintain views and amenity.

David highlights breathable veranda rooms as a design standout, which are concealed from public view and provide entry to each residence.

“Entrance directly into a timber lined breezeway is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional Queenslander ‘welcome’, and walking through this space to reach your front door is what makes it so special,” said David.

Nick said not only does 123OBR crystallise the Bottega Group’s vision to contribute to the Broadbeach landscape and its residents aesthetically, but also economically.

“We’re thrilled the 123OBR development poses a significant opportunity to generate local jobs and stimulate the local economy,” Nick said.
