The Broadbeach-based development firm Aniko Group has unveiled further plans for its grand Hope Island community on the Gold Coast.

Aniko Group, led by managing director George Mastrocostas, have fast-tracked construction for stage two of their $140 million No.1 Grant Avenue project, having secured more than 70 per cent of sales across the project.

Stage two of the development will feature 105 two, two plus study and three-bedroom apartments with a range of bridge free marina berths available along the Hope Island canal. Aniko also responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by creating a "post-pandemic" office precinct for those wanting to work remotely.

Fitness guru Michelle Bridges is designing the health club as part of the second stage, where they will also be a children's play centre, theatre, residents lounge and outdoor cooking and dining facilities.

Mastrocostas said that the rapid sell-out of stage one gave them the confidence to fast-track the launch of stage two.

“To have achieved such exceptional sales and demand for our projects during a year that was filled with a lot of uncertainty is a testament to the quality offering we have brought to market,” said Mr Mastrocostas. 

“The market has remained exceptionally strong during Covid and buyers who missed out on securing an apartment in stage one have already purchased within stage two.”

Part of the precinct will be No.35 Grant Avenue, with its apartments inspired by designs from New York.

The downsizer and owner-occupier market have been particularly interested in the development which allows them to downsize while still remaining in the area.

“There’s no doubt that the Gold Coast is one of the hotspots for residential property and with great lending conditions we are certainly seeing buyers transitioning into their next investment journey whether it is as an owner occupier or investor.”

“With the recent border re-openings, we expect to see an increasing number of southern buyers purchasing in the project and we look forward to meeting the buyers who purchased in stage one, sight unseen, who haven’t been able to see their apartments until now.”
