The booming Chevron Island is set for another apartment project, as developers continue to struggle for space in the busy Surfers Paradise area.

The latest development plans come from a Sydney-based development syndicate, who are seeking to build a 23-storey, 73-apartment development at 8-10 Parneno Street.

It's been cleverly designed by the award-winning Plus Architecture so every apartment can capture views of the ocean.

The building will be set on 1,012 sqm, after one of the 506 sqm sites sold earlier this year for $1,305,000. It homed an original four unit development known as Casablanca.

The town planner, Urban Planning Services, said Plus designed the building based on a local coastal venacular, playing off the image of surrounding modern developments.

Plus are calling the tower "coastal sophistication with barefoot luxury", and their design driver as timeless curves, which will last the test of time.

There will be 22 residential levels, not including the four basement levels of parking. There will be a landscaped entry with the lobby, and a mezzanine level for a wellness centre.

Levels one to seven will have four apartments per floor, 120 sqm three-bedroom apartments at the front of the building, and 100 sqm two-bedroom apartments with their own media rooms located at the rear of the building. They however will have balconies on the side of the building, to offer the postcard ocean views.

From level eight, the building will have a four metre set-back. From levels eight to 15 there will be four two-bedroom apartments per floor, before hitting level 16 where the large subpenthouse style apartments kick in.

There will still be two two-bedders at the back, but spanning the width of the building will be a half-floor, three-bedroom apartment, with two balconies, one off the master suite which will have its own walk in wardrobe and ensuite, and one off the open plan kitchen, living and dining room. These apartments will also have a media room.

There are two two-level penthouses from level 21. Downstairs is one of the bedrooms, and the main living, kitchen and dining area. Upstairs is another two bedrooms, and another outdoor terrace with its own plunge pool.

On this level is also an open rooftop will be further amenity, including a wet edge, resort-style pool with day beds, a sunken firepit space with built in seating, and a barbecue terrace, and with seating.

"Inspired by the surrounding soft and subtle rhythms of nature, the form of the tower have been carefully crafted to not only provide a highly articulated form but to also consciously represent these rhythms," Plus say.

"Articulated to provide captivating and stunning views from every apartment on every level, the development provides a superior level of resident’s recreation and amenity spaces culminating in an expansive resort style pool and rooftop terrace providing stunning 180 degree ocean views. A lower level wellness centre complements the rooftop spaces, with a large sized gym, sauna and yoga deck nestled within luscious landscaping.

"All common areas provide access to natural light and ventilation and a combination of superior amenity and carefully considered public spaces makes this development a true oasis and sanctuary for its residents to enjoy for decades to come.

Chevron Island is a hotbed for apartments currently, with a number of projects currently in the market.
