A local developer buyer has snapped up one of the two exclusive three-level penthouses crowning The AU - the new luxury Surfers Paradise apartment tower on the dress circle Esplanade.

The buyer has paid just south of $9 million for the 477 sqm space, which he intends on further customising for his family's entertainment and lifestyle needs.

There's scope, particularly with the third level of the penthouse, which can be crafted into something truly unique, ASF Group Marketing Director Daniel Fang said.

"The purchaser of the final penthouse could add another ocean view master suite, but there's already plenty of bedrooms. Thus, the options for a yoga or meditation room with full-width views of the beach, a cinema room, or even a personal gym are certainly available to them," Fang suggested.

The penthouse starts from level 17 and has a separate private lift within to access the higher levels. Offering 16m frontage directly facing the ocean, the penthouses feature four bedrooms with the second level having the option of including a lap pool.

"It's always a good sign when someone in the same industry sees the outstanding value proposition and quality of what you're delivering and subsequently buys into the project," Fang added.

"They truly do their due diligence, and the fact they're happy with what they see, with the quality of the process and the track record of the development company, is a great vote of confidence for The AU."

There's been significant interest from discerning local buyers for the lower level apartments. The price per square metre matched with the unrivalled beach and ocean views in such a central location in Surfers Paradise is incomparable to any other development on the market currently.

It's been local and interstate business owners who have made up the majority of the enquiry so far.

"The AU will be an exclusive community - a true boutique offering where you can get to know your neighbours. Of course, the residences also provide an elevated degree of privacy given that a typical 255 sqm residence will span an entire floor with its own private lift lobby."

Each full-floor apartment with a starting price of $3.45 million offers three bedrooms and a multi-purpose room, or four bedrooms, each with stone kitchens and an open plan living and dining area. Furthermore, each residence boasts a 16m frontage directly facing the Pacific Ocean and beach.

The resident amenity is located on the podium level, with a gym and residents' lounge space, which sit beside the infinity pool that looks out across the sand and ocean.

The podium level also features a barbecue and dining facilities, along with a sauna, ideal for unwinding after a few laps in the pool.

The display suite is up and ready for viewing for prospective buyers, with the interiors created in the style of the actual residences. That's located in the Soul Boardwalk shopping precinct, just a few minutes' walk from the actual site of The AU.
