The local Gold Coast developer QNY Group, in a joint venture with the Melbourne-based Glenvill, has submitted plans for a residential development in the heart of Broadbeach.

QNY Group, led by Anthony Quinn, has teamed up with Glenvill, who are behind the development, design and build of the newly created Melbourne suburb, Yarrabend - set to be the world’s most liveable suburb by 2025.

They'll be creating a luxury owner-occupier tower, in line with Quinn's other joint venture Gold Coast project, La Mer at Main Beach.

He and Glenvill have had Contreras Earl Architects draw up plans for a 24-level tower with just 21 apartments, 19 whole floors and two two-level penthouses.

Quinn secured the 511 sqm site at 21 Broadbeach Boulevard, on the corner of Armrick Avenue, for $10.1 million late last year.

Quinn says the boutique development will be an architectural statement.

“This site is like no other on the Gold Coast and we wanted the design to reflect its uniqueness,” Quinn said.

“We’ve worked closely with the architects, along with Form Landscape Architects, to come up with a design that will coexist with the natural environment while delivering an iconic landmark that enhances the aesthetic of this leafy Broadbeach Boulevard corner.

“I have partnered with Glenvill Developments because they are residential specialists that bring a truly 360 degree understanding of the development and property industry.”

Glenvill Developments, spearheaded by CEO Len Warson, has spent the last five decades on the forefront of Australian residential design delivering high end luxury residences across the country.

Warson says he was familiar with the site before Mr Quinn presented the opportunity.

“After holidaying on the Gold Coast recently, I told my wife if I was developing in Broadbeach, I would develop this site. It’s the best site in Broadbeach. And here we are – it’s synchronicity,” Warson said.

“It’s a corner beachfront site within the leafy Broadbeach Park quarter, situated at the end of a no-through road, where Armick Avenue joins the beachside Boulevard.

The site is effectively blocked off, providing a quiet green nook within walking distance to the centre of Broadbeach without the congestion, with direct access to the beach.”

In their design statement submitted to the Gold Coast City Council, Contreras Earl Architecture said the building was inspired by the surrounding vegetation and parks.

“The location presented an opportunity to create a residential landmark that coexists with the natural environment, nestled within the leafy Broadbeach Park quarter and drawing from the unique context, a quiet green nook in the heart of bustling Broadbeach.

“The tower uses its vertical structure to articulate the elegant design which emulates a tree trunk that is seamlessly connected to each floor slab which at the same time expresses an elegant organic petal shape in plan, inspired by the undulating detailed profile of Norfolk pine branches from the adjacent Broadbeach Park.

Residential amenity will exist on both the ground floor and rooftop space, with health and wellbeing at the forefront of the building’s design.

The ground floor wellness area will include features such as a sauna and gym, while the rooftop space will home a glass-edge pool, a dining and events room, along with a number of terraced seating areas set amongst landscaped gardens.

“This lavish amenity will bring a special character to the unique landmark building,” Contreras Earl added.

The expansive one-per floor apartments provide an appealing alternative to single-dwelling homes, where residents will be able to experience the abundance of natural sunlight and views of East Broadbeach and the Pacific Ocean.

“The iconic building will create a sense of arrival to the prospering suburb of Broadbeach on approach from Armrick Avenue from the north as well as a beautiful visual addition to the leafy Broadbeach Boulevard corner.”

“This new landmark will be an attractive architectural asset for the urban fabric of the coastal city.”

“An important concept of the building is to create a lifestyle experience for residents and to create a personal and intimate experience.”
