The Gold Coast's Runaway Bay is set to see its first residential tower to be developed in the idyllic Gold Coast waterfront enclave for almost three decades.

Belvue, French word for beautiful view, is set to be developed in a joint venture between Monaco Property Group and Polites Property Group, who has just lodged a development for the project.

The luxury tower on a 3,116 sqm site at 13-15 Bayview Street, has been designed for the owner-occupier, with just whole floor apartments.

The 31 apartments, which have four bedrooms each (or three and a multi-purpose room), will each take up a level of the 31 storey building, which is reminiscent of a resort-style hotel, without the mass number of rooms.

"It's an elevated lifestyle with resort-style amenities," Plus advise in their design statement.

Upon entry to the waterfront site will be three luxury detached villas, each spanning two levels with three bedrooms and a private outdoor terrace area.

The tower is set at the rear of the block, past the luxury, resort-style swimming pool and landscaping by Form Landscape Architects.

There will be a gym next to the main pool, as well as a barbecue pavilion, while past the tower is a second pool, overlooking the water. There's also a sauna and a steam room, as well as poolside cabanas, and a private terrace leading down to the beach.

The tower is targeting the owner-occupier, with each apartment having 246 sqm of internal space, with at least 23 sqm of external area. There are two balconies per apartment, one off the kitchen, living and dining area, the other accessed on the other side of the apartment.

“Runaway Bay’s development history dates back to the 1970s and it set the benchmark for residential apartment living on the Gold Coast in the 1980s and 1990s,” Alex Polites said.

“But since then, the Gold Coast has evolved into a sophisticated city envied not just as a holiday destination but for its coastal lifestyle. Now, finally, the time has come for the reinvigoration of Runaway Bay as one of the Gold Coast’s premier waterfront residential addresses.

“All of the 34 luxury residences in Belvue will offer a new design benchmark and the ultimate in sophisticated coastal living.”

Jonathan Grasso said Belvue had been meticulously designed to capture the most amazing views the Gold Coast and to create a private resort-style atmosphere on one of the Gold Coast’s quietest and most exclusive Broadwater enclaves.

“Our team has spent a lot of time designing and curating what we believe will be a highly unique luxurious residential offering for this pristine part of the Coast,” Grasso added.
