The luxury Palm Beach apartment market continues to gather steam, and with that is a solid pipeline of luxury apartment developments.

The latest to launch is Ocean House, a boutique collection of just eight full-floor apartments by the Sydney-based developer Macquarie York.

The approved development has been designed by the local architecture firm BDA Architects, who say the striking building is sculpted from inspiration from the surrounding natural environment of the movement of water and sand.

"Expressive architecture portrays a sense of subtropical architecture" BDA advise in their design statement, with architectural elements of sun hoods, moveable screens, large balconies and deep roof eaves.

The apartments, priced from $2.9 million, each span 200 sqm and have three bedrooms, as well as a media/multi-purpose room.

There will be shared resident amenity in a resort-style pool, dedicated barbecue and dining areas, and landscaping throughout.

“Ocean House will embody the finest luxury touches, alongside thoughtful additions that are made for practical liveability” Macquarie York founder Roy Skaf said.

The apartments, at 1101 Gold Coast Highway, will back onto Palm Beach Surf Club, placing residents with prime access to the heart of Palm Beach’s ambient café and dining culture. The apartments will have views over the water and the hinterland.

Palm Beach is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after suburbs on the Gold Coast, and for good reason,” Skaf said.

“It’s home to the coast’s most pristine beachfront, packed with a sensational café and restaurant scene, and remains close to key Gold Coast attractions all while retaining that idyllic relaxed coastal energy.”

Drawing inspiration from its natural surrounds, Ocean House residences are designed in an earthy colour palette, with ample storage and high-end finishes.

“The superior quality of these homes coupled with their incredible location has been deliberately designed with owner-occupiers and holiday makers in mind,” Skaf added.

Ocean House is Macquarie York's second apartment project on the Gold Coast, having achieved a near sell-out of its debut project, the $77 million Allure development on Chevron Island.
