The coastal suburb of Currumbin is the latest Gold Coast area to see plans lodged for a new apartment development.

Plans have been lodged for Kora, a boutique development of just seven apartments.

The apartments will be built at 798-800 Pacific Parade, facing Currumbin Beach.

The amalgamated 786 sqm site, which homed a holiday rental block of apartments called Shoreline and a beach shack, sold together for $5.56 million in December for the first time in six decades.

It was bought by a Sydney-based developer under the name Marquee Flora Pty Ltd, associated with south Sydney builder Raed Bachir.

The old buildings will be demolished and make way for the new Plus Architecture-designed building which will only span four levels.

There are hints of feature concrete, floor to ceiling glazing and timber look battens. 

“With a collection of seven premium residences, the planning ensures that all apartments feature unrivalled ocean views with generous internal living and expansive oceasndei balconies that respond to subtropical design ideals”, Plus Architecture’s description lodged to the City of Gold Coast council suggested.

“The rhythmic balcony lines of Kora reflect a pure expression of natural form; leave that brand from the central timber spine and taper to offer a light floating edge”.

The Town Planning Report suggested the architectural philosophy paid homage to the traditional ‘timber and tin’ beach shacks, evoking the relaxed sense of beachfront living, embracing high-quality, sub-tropical design which blends seamlessly into the beachside character of the site and its setting.

On the ground level there's set to be a communal wellness centre and pool for residents, as well as a beach house apartment with a private terrace and its own pool.

Above will just be two apartments per floor, then crowning the development communal roof terraces.

Due to the new City Plan established in December 2020, the area now has stricter development regulations, with limits keeping developments to either three storeys, or 15 metres high.

Kora will span four storeys, but will just be over 12 metres.
