The prominent Hope Island developer, Aniko Group, has laid out further residential apartment plans for the ever-growing island precinct.

Aniko, led by George Mastrocostas, has sought approval for a further 185 apartments on the 9,279 sqm site at 10-12 Sickle Avenue that was acquired earlier this year.

The two-building development will adjoin their Athena Residences apartment development at 6-8 Sickle, which recently secured approval from the Gold Coast City Council.

Aniko has had their go-to architecture firm, the local Archidiom, created plans for the two mid-rise buildings, focused around a central recreation area feature a pool, gym, theatre, residents lounge and outdoor seating and lawns.

Tower A will have 98 apartments, a mix of 86 two-bedroom units and 16 three-bedroom apartments. Tower B will home 87 two-bedroom apartments.

Town planner Zone Planning Group said the proposal is expected to act as a catalyst for the establishment of further higher density development within Hope Island and will assist in ensuring that a portion of the planned density lost to the nearby lower density developments is achieved.

At the time of purchase, Mastrocostas said the site would be suited to a high-density apartment precinct, comparing it to their nearby $140 million 1 Grant Avenue project, which is all sold out.

“We’re delighted to have put a foothold on another premium waterfront site in Hope Island and we are looking forward to adding a spectacular project to support the demand for apartment living in the area,” Mastrocostas said.

“The site is very large and offers unfettered access to the Hope Island Canal and The Broadwater and we believe it would be suited to a luxury apartment project to complement what we have already created at Hope Island."

The development is Aniko's fifth on Hope Island.
