Surfers Paradise is set for a 38-level tower which will home just 35 full-floor apartments.

Local developer Ayrton Mansi, who was set to develop the $115 million Opal at Broadbeach before onselling the project six years ago, alongside Freddie Sheene, have submitted the plans for 17-19 First Avenue, an 809 sqm double corner block on the border of Surfers and Broadbeach.

Just 200 metres from the beach, the yet to be named tower has been designed by Plus Architecture, who say the design was inspired by the "dynamic theatre of the ocean."

"Plus Architecture has designed Nineteen First Avenue to consciously represent the natural movement and rhythm of the ocean," the Plus team advised in their submission to the Gold Coast City Council.

"The facade transforms from the active lower levels to the calmer tower form and creates a soft soliloquy of movement and rhythm."

Each apartment will have 286 sqm internal living area and a further 30 sqm of outdoor balconies. They will have three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

"One single, generous apartment occupies each of the residential floors which are sculpted to provide engaging and spectacular views," Plus noted.

Levels two and three will home the resident recreation, with everything from an infinity edge pool, gym, and sauna, to work from home facilities including a number of booths and a conference room.

It's a continuation of the move toward high impact, but low density apartment towers sweeping the Gold Coast, with high demand coming from high-net-worth individuals who want more than just a holiday rental apartments.

The tower is similar to Myst, a 33-level tower slated just 60 metres down the road, closer to the beach.

Myst, to be developed by Orenda Projects and also designed by Plus, will see 46 apartments created, 45 of those being three-bedroom apartments, which, apart from the three whole-floor sub-penthouses, will span half of a floor.

The top two levels will be dedicated to a two-level penthouse, the only four-bedroom apartment in the building. That will have its own private terrace with a swimming pool.

The resident amenity will be located on the level four podium, which will home an infinity edge pool and pool lounge area, a separate spa, and a barbecue and dining space.

The level five mezzanine will have the gym, complete with a sauna and a steam room. There will also be a residents lounge in the 27th level.
