The first development of Soheil Abedian following the closure of Sunland Group has been granted approval.

Abedian's new Abedian & Co venture will be developing Peerless in Mermaid Beach, not far from Sunland's successful 272 Hedges Ave which was recently completed.

The approval comes just four months after the plans for Peerless were filed with the Gold Coast City Council.

The project site at 35-41 Peerless Avenue will sit next door to the recently completed Bela by Mosaic.

Gold Coast-based Spatium Architects designed the plans for the 124-metre high tower, which focuses on the owner-occupier, dominated by a suite of three-bedroom apartments. 

There will be 103 apartments in total, 44 two-beds which start at a generous 117 sqm internal living space and a further 11 sqm balcony.

Some 64 three-bed apartments are planned, which will start from nearly 200 sqm internally and have nearly 20 sqm balcony space. The sub-penthouse three-beds will span half a floor.

There will be a sole four-bedroom apartment, the sprawling rooftop penthouse, which will span over 400 sqm of living space and a further 280 sqm of outdoor area which will feature its own lawn.

A landscaped elevated podium will round out the recreational offering within the tower, featuring a 25 metre lap pool with a lagoon and inpool and spa, poolside garden pods, a garden barbecue terrace with lounge seating, a gym, a yoga room and a yoga lawn, along with two saunas and a steam room. 

Away from the pool will also be a private bar and dining room with a green roof, which can be booked out by residents, along with further work from home space, provided in the form of a lounge with a library and meeting room.

It is proposed the development will become a landmark building along the southern high rise fringe, with the site maintaining high visual exposure from the Gold Coast Highway and Hedges Avenue.

"The vision for this development is simple in the desire to create a carefully crafted residential project which not only provides a beautiful living environment for the residents, but also pays respect to the community in the way it integrates with its street context and the city skyline," Spatium noted in the development application.

They said that all apartments are generously sized to provide genuinely liveable spaces and that the unit mix, rather than being focused solely on high income earners, provides well designed homes for a large cross section of the community in the form of two, three and four-bedroom apartments.
