Chevron Island has undergone a full regeneration, with buyers descending on the village-style island just off across the bridge from the lifestyle and entertainment hub of Surfers Paradise.

Since the opening of the new $60 million arts precinct HOTA (Home of The Arts), Australia's largest regional art gallery, Chevron Island has well and truly been in the spotlight, both for developers, who are seeking to creating apartments on the limited land on the island, and buyers who want to live the quiet village, community-driven lifestyle, while still being within touching distance of Surfers Paradise.

Urban has taken a look at some of the best apartments currently for sale on Chevron Island.


Developer: Aniko Group

The latest developer to take to Chevron Island is Aniko Group, who made a name for themselves for their extensive redevelopment of Hope Island.

They've recently launched Orama, which rise 21 levels from 12-16 Weemala Street, conveniently located just off Thomas Drive, the retail, food and cafe which dissects the island.

The site is also located on the sought-after eastern side of Chevron Island, which makes it just a short 950 metre walk over the bridge to the heart of Surfers Paradise.

There will be 102 apartments in the tower, six units per floor on the lower levels comprising two-bed, two-bath units with a study, and most with two car parks. Prices start from $795,000.

On the higher levels there are three-bedroom skyhomes and two penthouses.

Plus Architecture has designed the tower, noting in their submission that they always design with the intent to produce buildings that are not only beautiful, but considered, functional and lasting.


Developer: Siera Group

The hotly anticipated Chevron Island apartment development, Tapestry, which was designed to reflect the growing cultural and arts precinct just off Surfers Paradise, recently launched to the market.

The 22-level project, on the east-side of Chevron Island at 39 Darrambal Street, was developed by the Brisbane-based Siera Group, with local architecture firm BDA on board for the design.

With 113 apartments, Tapestry offers residents two and three-bedroom residences, with floorspace of up to 124 sqm.

Crowning Tapestry is set to be one of the most impressive rooftop amenity spaces on the Gold Coast, featuring a resort-style swimming pool with day beds, a spa, and a pool deck.

A barbecue and alfresco area will sit in landscaping, as will dining surrounded by an edible garden.

There is also set to be a private dining space with a terrace and fire pit, a gym with sauna and steam room, and a lounging area with a lawn.

Chevron One

Developer: Bensons Property

As Chevron Island’s first and only true high-rise apartment developments, Chevron One has paved the way for the developments that sit alongside it in this list.

Developed by Bensons Property, Chevron One rises 41 levels at the sought-after Stanhill Drive dress circle.

The group secured the development application before stricter rules were put in place on development height.

There will be 228 apartments in Chevron One, designed by architects Marchese Partners.

The one, two and three-bedroom apartments are spacious in design, featuring open-plan living areas, with the kitchens designed by renowned chef, Shannon Bennett.

Home to nearly 2000 sqm of resort-style amenities, residents will benefit from a private outdoor lagoon pool with floating cinema, sculptured gardens, an indoor/outdoor beach, a lap pool, spa and sauna.

Residents will also enjoy exclusive dining facilities, resident’s lounge with barbecue facilities, a gymnasium and a yoga and pilates room.

Located on the banks of the Nerang River, Chevron One  rises above the new arts precinct on the island, situated minutes from the beaches, business precincts, retail and entertainment venues of Surfers Paradise.
