Nedale Hamdan and Charlie Ayoub are the latest Sydney developers to dip their toe in the water in the Gold Coast apartment market.

They've lodged plans in Palm Beach, which is set to boom when the much-talked-about Gold Coast Light Rail passes through the quiet beachside spot.

Hamdan and Ayoub, who founded developer Masscon in 2014, has lodged plans for a nine-storey residential apartment across an amalgamated 1,783 sqm site fronting the Gold Coast Highway.

Designed by BDA Architects, the built form combines softly articulated edges and gentle curves to its horizontal layering, with soft flowing screen elements and a coastal material palette which anchors the development in its context.

“The design intent is to create a high quality residential apartment building that achieves a high standard of architecture, liveability and appropriate scale within the Palm Beach site context," BDA noted in their design application.

“Through thoughtful, considered analysis of the context and its location within the Palm Beach area, the design builds on the existing contextual coastal qualities and provides a response that offers a high quality and visually interesting residential building which will provide considerable amenity for residents and a lasting architectural contribution to the Palm Beach precinct.”

There will be a maximum seven apartments per floor, with apartments on the higher levels offering unobstructed beach views of the neighbouring Palm Beach frontage. There will be a mix of two and three-bedroom apartments, some 16 configurations on offer. The largest apartment configuration spans over 160 sqm. There is a single one-bedroom apartment.

Each of the 58 apartments extend out from the living spaces onto expansive balconies, seamlessly blending the indoors with the out, and further opening up the already generously-sized apartments.

To enrich the living environment of the residents, a generous sized recreational area has been offered to promote engagement on the ground floor including a large outdoor barbecue and dining space, as well as a pool.

With its beach-front location, residents will benefit from its immediate beach access along with its close proximity to the popular Palm Beach cultural precinct, featuring a wealth of amenity, including restaurants, bars, shops and cafes.

Positioned along the Gold Coast Highway, residents will also be connected to well-serviced public transport links, connecting them to the greater Gold Coast region and beyond.
