A luxury apartment developed dubbed Burly by DD Living has received development application approval from the Gold Coast City Council. The project, which is being developed by David Devine and designed by Koichi Takada Architects, is set to be one of the most exciting and innovative residential buildings on the Gold Coast.
The approved development will replace the originally planned $105 million Alba Residences on a 1012sqm site located at 264 The Esplanade, situated across the road from the North Burleigh Surf Life Saving Club. Developer David Devine has upgraded the original scheme to include the neighbouring site at 268 The Esplanade, creating a much larger footprint which intensified the project site. The new scheme, Burly by DD Living, is now fully approved and the developer will move forward under the new approved tower model which sits in a prime beachside Gold Coast location.
“We are making the most of this opportunity with a new architectural design that improves the residential offering, which is only possible now after doubling the space we originally had,” Devine said.
The approval of the development application, undertaken by Urban Planning Services, is a significant milestone for the project and paves the way for construction to commence. The Burly development will feature 100 luxury apartments, including a mix of two, three, and four-bedroom options, spread over 24 floors. The project is made up of 63 x 3-bedroom offerings, showing the confidence in the Gold Coast’s owner/occupier market currently.
The apartments have been designed by Koichi Takada Architects with a focus on luxury and comfort, with high-quality finishes and floorplans throughout. Each apartment will feature an open-plan living area, generous balcony, and floor-to-ceiling windows that offer breathtaking views of the ocean and surrounding Burleigh Heads landscape.
In addition to the luxurious apartments, Burly will also feature a range of world-class amenities, including a large pool and deck area, fully equipped gym, saunas, yoga studio and hot and cold spas. The projects amenity level will all be located on the ground floor, with the developer adding in a surfboard storage room to attract the local surfing buyer base, along with BBQ dining facilities.
The Gold Coast market for quality stock does not seem to be slowing down, with the beachside strip seeing multiple apartment projects launch to the market. Large scale apartment projects such as AMAYA by Amalgamated Property Group, Victoria & Albert by Iris Capital, The Rochester by Polycell Group and Lily by the Mosaic Property Group, are all examples of the hunger that buyers have developed all over the Gold Coast for luxury beachside living.
The Burly development is set to become a landmark on the Gold Coast and a testament to Koichi Takada Architects innovative approach to design. The project’s design is a fusion of modern architecture and nature, with a curved facade that blends seamlessly into the surrounding landscape.
