The Brisbane-based Horan Group is branching out to the Gold Coast.

They're starting in Broadbeach, where they've had DBI Architects submit plans for a 28-level tower at 11 Rosewood Avenue, Broadbeach.

Dubbed ROSEWOOD, the project will have 120 apartments.

DBI say they have designed Rosewood to offer a truly distinctive lifestyle opportunity.

"ROSEWOOD is designed to respond to the local environment at both the macro and micro level," DBI's submission to the Gold Coast City Council read.

"The development is broken down vertically into thirds; the ground plane base, expansive recreational space and residential tower.

"Horizontally the tower residential levels form is broken into three parts; north and south facing wings, a recessed eastern edge and expressed rhythmic vertical spine."

There will be just five apartments per floor, with 96 two-bedders, a quarter with an additional multipurpose room, and 24 three-bedroom apartments. The internal living space for the two-bedroom apartments start at 80 sqm, with a further 12 sqm of balcony space.

The three-bed internal space is 115 sqm.

Level 3 will home the resident amenity. There will be an outdoor lap pool, with cabanas and day beds, a yoga lawn. Inside there's a lounge and workshare areas.

"All recreational spaces on Level 3 have been designed to blur the line between internal and external spaces, along with a 6.3m floor to floor, allowing maximum natural light throughout the day and views through perimeter subtropical planting," DBI advise.

Residents will be welcomed by a 12 metre high external lobby arrival, connecting to the double-height lobby. 

ROSEWOOD is situated within walking distance from Cascade Gardens, Broadbeach Park, public transport, the Broadbeach foreshore and a 500m stroll from the vibrant Broadbeach urban hub.

The Horan Group have previously built Mirada at Suttons Beach in Brisbane's Moreton Bay region, and their flagship Peak Apartments in Brisbane.

The new tower is just a few doors down from Asana, the first project on the Gold Coast by the Sydney-based Macquarie Developments.

Assana, which will be the tallest tower in Broadbeach at 52-levels, topping the height of the nearby The Oracle Beach Tower, which peaks at 50 storeys.

The Gold Coast City Council gave the development the green light, after Macquarie amended the approved application after they bought the site in October through site amalgamation specialist GV Property Group.

Assana will now rise a further 11 levels, but will have considerably less apartments, down from 186 to 146, a move which sees the developer cater to growing trend of bigger apartments for the owner-occupier.

There's set to be further development, with GV Property Group seeking buyers for 4-6 Rosewood Avenue.

The 1,422 sqm site would suit another high-rise.
