Bassar Construction Group set for Eternity, Broadbeach apartment tower

With the last of Infinity’s 62 apartments having sold in March, Bassar has wasted no time sourcing a prime site for its next high end apartment project.

Bassar Construction Group, who are behind the sold-out Broadbeach apartment building Infinity, is preparing to release its second Broadbeach project.

Bassar, who sold out the 62-apartment, 39-storey Infinity development in March, currently under construction on the corner of Surf Parade and George Avenue, has secured a site at 14-18 Mary Avenue to developer Eternity.

Kollosche agent Simon Worthington negotiated the off-market sale of the 1518 sqm site for $16.6 million.

That sale, which settled at the start of May, paves the way for Eternity, a DA-approved 35-level development comprised of 88 apartments, including two penthouses, and resort-style amenities.

“The major appeal of this site is the unobstructed ocean views because that is what people expect when they visualise their sea change on the Gold Coast,” said Leo Sarris, who heads up Bassar Construction Group alongside Simon Bassil.

“Our commitment and focus remain in Broadbeach because we feel it is the suburb that caters for everyone and everything you need is within walking distance.” Located opposite Broadbeach State School, the site is currently home to two seventies-style blocks of flats across two titles."

Gold Coast-based Plus Architecture has been engaged to conceive a slender design which improves upon an existing development approval sold with the site.

Eternity will offer three and four-bedroom floor plans ranging from 190 sqm to 300 sqm, in addition to the 500 sqm for the penthouse suites.

Apartments will each have a double garage, while the penthouses come with triple car parking, a rooftop terrace and a plunge pool.

Residents will also benefit from a magnesium pool and spa, infrared sauna, steam room, gym and residents’ lounge.

“We know that buyers in the luxury space prefer to have larger apartments,” said Sarris.

“That third or fourth bedroom is important for downsizers who like to host guests and for growing families who prefer easy, low-maintenance living.”

Kollosche New Projects has been appointed as the exclusive selling agents for Eternity, with registrations of interest now being taken ahead of the official project launch in June.

Hutchinson Builders, who are also building Infinity, have been appointed by open negotiation to lead a 2.5-year construction timeline which would see the team break dirt in early 2023.

Sarris noted the key relationships forged on Infinity have carried over to Eternity, creating not only a smooth pathway for the developer but also confidence for buyers.

“Aligning ourselves with the right people in the industry has been key to our success on the Gold Coast to date and we’ve been very deliberate in taking those relationships into our next project,” said Sarris.

“When you look at the issues we’ve faced as an industry through Covid – be that increases in material prices and supply issues – you’re always better off working with people that you know will take the project to completion with you.”
