Sales have begun at Allure Property Corporation's $90 million Gold Coast project 88 Burleigh.

The seashell-inspired, 17-level tower on The Esplanade, across from Burleigh Heads beach, will home just 31 apartments.

It has been designed by the local architecture firm DBI with the owner-occupier in mind, with spacious apartments each with at least three bedrooms. Interest is expected to come from local downsizers.

The upper-level sub-penthouses have four bedrooms and each span over 400 sqm.

Each apartment’s lobby opens directly on a sky garden forming a vertical green spine on its northern and southern facades. Full-height windows and operable panels in the living areas have been used not only to optimise the ocean views, but to allow for natural light and sea breezes by facilitating cross-ventilation.

The ground level will feature a boutique residents club with lounge, kitchen and bar facilities as well as double beach shower.

Apartment prices start from over $2 million.

DBI director Raith Anderson says 88 Burleigh has been imagined as a “living and breathing extension of the beautiful beachfront location”.

“The project has elegant clean lines and glazing dialogue with the crafted sculptural spine running along the beach façade reminiscent of a Turridae eroded by the sea breeze, which has been directly inspired by Burleigh’s coastal DNA,” said Mr Anderson. 

Its beachside façade draws its inspiration and takes its form from the internal structure of a Turrid shell.

Mr Anderson said the design of the development and use of timeless materials reflects Burleigh Head’s established natural palette and the famed sophisticated beach lifestyle. 

“The base of the building showcases cascading subtropical seaside landscaped terraces and a sculpted scalloped planted awning which extends the vertical green spine all the way to the luxuriant landscaped ground floor and lobby,” said Mr Anderson. 

“The walls and planters are clad with travertine and the ground level meandering landscaped pathways are covered with natural stone, complementing the clean design of the tower and offering an additional layer of sophistication.

“Expansive glass facade with sliding glass screens and feature curved panels provide uninterrupted beach views to the residents while providing comfortable, well protected indoor and outdoor living spaces all year.”
