Inside the DE-LUXE apartments: What the Old Burleigh Theatre is set to look like

Selling agent Patrick Pancur says DE-LUXE is a very unique offering, something Burleigh Heads, or even the Gold Coast, has seen before

The Sydney-based Weiya Holdings are transforming the Old Burleigh Theatre in the sought-after area of Burleigh Heads, in what will be the first ever adaptive re-use of a building with heritage elements on the Gold Coast.

The Goodwin Terrace development, dubbed DE-LUXE, will see the the 1930s cinema, which closed its doors around 1970s to become the retail and dining Old Burleigh Theatre Arcade, completely transformed.

Weiya are keeping large parts of the building, which is considered a landmark by locals. 

The ground level and arcade will be retained and restored, and will soon home 13 levels of luxury apartments built above the space.

Weiya, who since the announcement of the redevelopment of the theatre have been working with locals groups and council, called on Conrad Gargett Architects, who are specialist in the heritage restoration space, to handle the design.

Rey Boliver, associate interior designer at Conrad Gargett, said the most important factor was how to make a point of difference at DE-LUXE.

"We ask ourselves a simple question: In the sea of travertine and polished plaster, that is found within these similar developments, what can set us apart?"

"It all comes down to the theatre" Boliver says.

"The theatre is what makes this whole project special and unique."

The two-bedroom apartments, which had been priced from $1.42 million, have already sold out. They have over 200 sqm of living space, which is a more standard size for a four-bedroom apartment.

From levels three to 10 are two-per-floor pavilions, with 300 sqm of living space. They start from $3.7 million.

The sub-penthouse skyhomes, on levels 11 and 12, are over 400 sqm and have a $6.9 million price tag. The two-level penthouse, which spans levels 12 to 13, spans 485 sqm.

That has its own private lift access and its own wine cellar. Pancur is asking $8.9 million for the penthouse.

The two-level, New York-style beach houses, start from $5.8 million. They're using the original natural brick and timbers, mixing the old and new creating the first ever heritage mix beach house.

There's been some interest from some who want to amalgamate two penthouses, which would create a 970 sqm space. That will cost a cool $17.8 million.

Pancur says DE-LUXE is a very unique offering, something Burleigh Heads, or even the Gold Coast, has never seen before.

"It's certainly a special project," Pancur says. "There will never be a repeat of this development, on one of Burleigh's best streets."

"In the villas, as well as the lobby and common areas, we have a lot of the natural materials that are used," Pancur added.

His early interest has came from the locked down Sydney and Melbourne, as well as a lot of local interest. But more recently he's seen high demand from local Burleigh, either who grew up seeing movies in the theatre as a child or remembering the old childhood days in the arcade.

"DE-LUXE has a sentimental value and you can’t get this from any project on the Gold Coast. DE-LUXE is something special and has a story to tell for many generations to come."

Weiya Holdings General Manager Garry Doherty said they are looking forward to bringing Burleigh Heads the innovative project.

“It’s been a long road to get here but we are extremely grateful for the feedback from community that allowed us to devise a truly unique design that maintains that connection to the community while providing sought-after residences on one of the Gold Coasts’ most coveted beachfronts,” Doherty said.
