The wave of low-rise apartment developments in the best pockets in Mermaid Beach is continuing.

The new plans are on the exclusive Albatross Avenue, the beachside strip just south of Hedges Avenue, dubbed the millionaire's row of Mermaid Beach. Albatross is still revered, considered the next best street in the small Gold Coast enclave.

The latest plans has been filed by a company co-directed by Alroe Constructions' Tye Alroe, who is seeking to create a four-level, eight-apartment project at 120-122 Albatross Avenue.

There will be just two apartments per floor.

The design statement from Impact Design the two per floor villas will provide a high standard of liveability and generate an appropriate scale in the developing context.

“The villas provided are large liveable dwellings that can cater for families and focus on maximising natural ventilation and natural light,”

Each villa will feature open plan living arrangements with dining, living and kitchens opening onto generous outdoor living spaces.

The three-bedroom villas all consist of two-and-a-half bathrooms, with villas three to eight also including an additional multi-purpose area.

Villas one and two feature plunge pools with private gardens and landscaping at the ground level, whilst both villas seven and eight have access to private roof terraces that home barbecue facilities, raised plunge pools and landscaped planter boxes.

Architecturally, the design is contemporary and minimal. Lending itself to the beachside locality, the building is characterised by white feature walls, timber look cladding, natural timber look screens, raw stone and a natural tonal palette.

"The architectural language is contemporary and minimal with a beachside tone," the statement added.

The sweeping curves of the built form pay homage to the nearby beach, complemented by fixed batten screens giving depth to the façade, along with privacy from the street and neighbours.

Located between the Nobby Beach cafe and restaurant precinct and the Broadbeach shopping and restaurant precinct, residents benefit from a long list of amenity, just steps from the 810 sqm site.
