The Gold Coast is running out of apartments.

That's the data pulled by property consultancy firm Urbis, who say there is just over two months of stock left on the Gold Coast, if there were to be no new project released and current demand continued.

Local agents are reporting there is just not enough high-end stock to meet the demand for local and interstate buyers wanting to spend more on their holiday home, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

They are expecting a wave of buyers to be flying up from Sydney and Melbourne when the borders open, and are expecting little slowdown heading in to January

Urban has wrapped up the top apartments across the Gold Coast at the high-end price point.

Aperture, Broadbeach

Three-bedroom full-floor apartments from $2.1 million

The hotly anticipated Aperture, which will be one of the most high-end apartment developments in Broadbeach when completed in mid-2023, will have just 29 apartments across its 35 levels.

There will be 26 full-floor apartments, each spanning over 200 sqm of internal and external space. Each will comprise three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and three parking spaces.

Following on from their successful first tower in Broadbeach, Signature, which sold out earlier this year, the Melbourne-based Little Projects took a different approach to Aperture, which refers to the opening of a lens's diaphragm through which light passes.

The AU, Surfers Paradise

Three-bedroom full-floor apartments from $3.45 million

The AU, a collection of just 12 exclusive full-floor oceanview sky homes and two opulent three-level penthouses, has just launched on the sought-after Esplanade in Surfers Paradise.

Archidiom put the plans together for the 19-storey tower, with a facade made almost entirely of golden glass.  It allows each apartment to have clear panoramic views of the Surfers Paradise beach.

The developer, ASF Group, enlisted the expertise of the Sydney-based interior design legend Greg Natale to craft the interiors, something no other Gold Coast apartment development can boast.

The apartments will have the finest finishes, with natural stone bench tops, and gold fixtures and finishes throughout.

Chevron One, Chevron Island

Four-bedroom sky homes from $3,325,000

Chevron One, set to reign as Chevron Island's only luxury high-rise apartment tower, recently released its Sky Home collection, starting from level 31 in the sought-after apartment development.

The Melbourne-based Bensons Property Group held off releasing the apartments publicly, but given the huge demand in ultra-luxury, large apartments in the sky, they decided to list them on the open market.

When complete, Chevron One will be the tallest tower on the exclusive island, and the tallest there ever will be, with the Gold Coast City Council two years ago bringing in strict planning laws, limiting future apartment projects to 33 metres, or 12 storeys.

There's a number of three and four-bedroom Sky Homes, some spanning half and full-floors. Four-bedroom apartments, with over 236 sqm of living space, are priced from $3,325,000.

Emerson, Kirra Beach

Three-bedroom full-floor apartments from $2.95 million

Emerson, set on the dress circle Musgrave Street in Kirra Beach, Coolangatta, will home just 27 apartments when it is completed in late October.

There are only six apartments left to sell in the $85 million, 13-level development by the Melbourne-based developer Hirsch & Faigeno sold out The Hemingway at Palm Beach earlier this year. They're soon to launch their third Gold Coast project, Yves at Mermaid Beach.

Crowning Emerson, which will begin construction through Hutchies in February, will be an $8 million penthouse, which is yet to be snapped up.

123OBR, Broadbeach

Three-bedroom full-floor apartments from $2.65 million

The Brisbane-based developer Bottega Group are marketing their $52 million Broadbeach apartment block, 123OBR, described as vertically stacked verdant Queensland beach houses.

Named after its location of 123 Old Burleigh Road, one row back from Broadbeach, and designed by Woods Bagot, 123OBR will have 14 whole-floor apartments, as well as a whole floor resort deck half way up the tower.

Priced from $2.65 million, a typical whole-floor apartment at 123OBR will offer 224 sqm of living space with three bedrooms with walk-in wardrobes, two bathrooms and an open plan living and dining areas which have views through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

La Mer

Three-bedroom full-floor apartments from $3,245,000

Residents of the new luxury Main Beach apartment development, La Mer, will have the ultimate Gold Coast lifestyle on their doorstep when the whole-floor apartments are finished in late 2023.

Across the road from the beach on Main Beach Parade, La Mer comprises just 29 apartments across its 34 levels, with only a handful of apartments remaining.

Just whole-floor apartments, starting from 307 sqm, La Mer is pitching itself as the ultimate downsizer development. "Transitioning from a house to an apartment has never been easier," NPA Projects, who are marketing the development, suggest.

Communal recreational facilities also sprawl across an entire floor, a blend of physical wellbeing and entertainment facilities. There's a 13-metre pool, which is cleverly designed to be private, while also being open plan to take advantage of the consistent Gold Coast climate and the views to the beach.
