The Gold Coast's Main Beach is set for a new 24 level apartment tower.

Gallagher Property Group, led by New Zealander Dean Gallagher, have secured approval for the apartment tower at 16 Hughes Avenue.

Plus Architecture have designed the building which will comprise 42 three bedroom apartments and two four bedroom apartments spanning the top two levels.

"Our team was inspired by the nature surrounding the Gold Coast including the flora, and land forms," the submission to the Gold Coast City Council from Plus Architecture read.

"By combining the local native tree forms with the fluid forms of the ocean, we’ve created a series of residences protected by curved canopies formed out of linear battens creating both privacy but also screening to the Wester sun while creating visual interest, exaggerating the horizontal ocean views, and allowing for the light an shadow to come into the units in a variety of interesting ways through out the day.

"These canopy forms rest on a solid rock base made of horizontal bricks."

The development will sit in landscaping by Shepherd Urban Landscape Architecture.

Level one will home the resident amenities, which include a spa and spa deck, sauna, lap pool, barbecue area, residents lounge, gym and a yoga space. There will be three levels of basement parking.

The impressive sub penthouse and penthouse will each have four bedrooms, a home office and a self-contained area and span the whole floor of the 23rd and 24th level.

The penthouse will feature its own rooftop terrace complete with private gym, kitchen and wine storage, dining area, fire-pit and day beds as well as a pool.

Gallagher's investment vehicles paid $6.8 million for the 1,062 sqm Hughes Ave site late last year. On the property was a block of five apartments and a single level cottage.
