The Soul, Surfers Paradise penthouse has been listed for May 28 auction by tech businessman Andrew Koloadin.

Its likely selling price will more than doubling the state’s apartment record.

Its listing agent Tolemy Stevens, of Harcourts Coastal, has advised the recent $20.1 million apartment auction record set in Sydney’s Bondi Beach last month was a fair comparison.

“The vendor wouldn’t be selling it just to recoup his costs,” Stevens told Domain.

It was purchased as a shell in 2018 for $6.5 million, followed by a high-tech fit-out costing more than $7 million.

The 7001/4-14 Esplanade penthouse features a lap pool and spa on its rooftop terrace in the Juniper-built high rise.

The four-storey space with almost 1100 square metres was previously owned by Hong Kong billionaire tycoon Tony Fung.

Fung sold at a loss having bought it from receivers in 2015 for $7 million.

The most expensive apartment sold in Queensland was the two-storey penthouse in the Chevron Renaissance, Surfers Paradise at $9.5 million in 2018.

The five-bedroom penthouse across levels 70 to 73 includes seven bathrooms, and executive study.

There is parking for eight cars.

It is to be sold fully furnished.

There is the option of being paid for in Bitcoin.

Koloadin, who lives in Sydney's Kyle Bay, founded web-hosting company Digital Pacific in 2000.
