In a significant milestone for Rainbow Bay, the Awaken Residences has been unveiled, the latest addition to S&S Projects’ trilogy of luxury residential projects on the southern Gold Coast. Set high atop the Coollangatta beaches hillside, the completion of the project signifies a transformative moment for the city’s emerging luxury lifestyle and destination precinct.
Awaken Residences, a $52.5 million project by S&S Projects, comprises eight full-floor residences and a double-storey penthouse, all of which were sold out prior to construction commencement. The development has attracted local and international buyers eager to secure their place in the southeasternmost residential address in Queensland, offering unparalleled views across three iconic beaches.
As the first residents move into this highly anticipated project, the Gambaro family, renowned for their more than 70 years in Brisbane’s hospitality scene, is set to introduce a Mediterranean-inspired dining experience to Rainbow Bay. John Gambaro, the celebrated Brisbane restaurateur, is finalizing two new dining venues at Awaken to complement the local culinary landscape.
“The completion of Awaken heralds more than a new landmark for Rainbow Bay,” stated Paul Gedoun, Director of S&S Projects. “Building on the success of its sister projects Flow and Esprit, we are excited to enhance the relaxed coastal lifestyle of Coolangatta with two exceptional dining venues at Awaken presented by the Gambaro family.”
Pipi’s, located on the second level of the 12-storey Awaken building, will offer prime steaks from the family’s Black Hide Steakhouse, along with a new concept featuring fresh seasonal seafood and Italian-inspired delights. Awaken Café, the second venue, is a casual health-conscious café with an all-day menu set to attract a strong local following.
John Gambaro expressed excitement about bringing Pipi’s and Awaken Café to this stunning location.
“Our team is working on refining each detail to ensure we create a dining experience that keeps our loyal customers coming back, week after week.”
Set atop one of the Gold Coast’s highest beachfront locations, Awaken Residences has proven to be a sales success, with the $9.4 million penthouse setting a record for the southern Gold Coast. The apartments feature Gaggenau appliances, herringbone oak flooring, steam showers, and the finest fixtures.
Awaken Residences, located at 275 Boundary Street, offers unprecedented 360-degree views across the Gold Coast, northern NSW beaches, and the Tweed hinterland. Designed by award-winning architects Cottee Parker and delivered by McNab constructions, the building features a detailed and spectacular facade, including a three-dimensional art piece by renowned Australian artist Lindy Lee.
Jayde Pezet of Pezet Matheson, Head of Sales at Awaken Residences, describes it as the jewel in the crown for S&S Projects’ Coolangatta development trilogy.
“The market response has been huge, and the inclusion of Queensland’s most renowned restaurant operators in the Gambaro family is the icing on the cake for this development and for the local community.”
S&S Projects is currently progressing construction of its third project for the luxury enclave, Esprit Rainbow Bay, comprising 94 luxury apartments, with completion scheduled for mid-2025.
