The Morris Property Group has submitted a development application for a sleek 25-level residential tower situated at 14 Chelsea Avenue, right in the bustling heart of Broadbeach. This move signifies the firm’s intent to further strengthen its presence in the flourishing Gold Coast market, adding yet another residential project to its portfolio along the sunny coastal strip.

Designed by the esteemed architectural firm Cottee Parker, the tower will feature 21 full-floor 3-bedroom residences spanning 25 stories on a compact 607sqm parcel of land. In addition to the residential units, the tower will include a rooftop recreation deck, providing 230sqm of leisure space on Level 25. This rooftop oasis will boast amenities such as a swimming pool, outdoor kitchen/BBQ area, bathroom facilities, indoor gym, and yoga studio. Furthermore, the development will offer three levels of basement car parking, accommodating a total of 38 resident car parking spaces.

According to the planning report, the towers design seeks to achieve a soft presence within the streetscape.

“The design incorporates smooth curved balconies to provide layering to the façade and to soften the presentation of the building to street. Angled articulation through the eastern and western elevation also provides visual interest through the depth and height of the tower to produce a high quality and contemporary development design.” States the planning documentation.

Each full-floor apartment spans 190sqm and features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and an additional multi-purpose room. Enhancing the living space, each apartment includes a 35sqm balcony offering views of the northern end of the site. Additionally, Level 2 will house the project’s only 2-bedroom unit.

The Morris Property Group are no strangers to Chelsea Avenue in Broadbeach, having developed the 26-storey ‘Opus’ tower on the site next door to this current application at 14 Chelsea Avenue. The Opus tower currently stands overlooking the Broadbeach Soccer Club and Nikiforides Family Park and operates as a short term stay accommodation. This next tower will straddle Opus directly next door, giving the group a second project in the same location.
