Prominent Gold Coast developer Lacey Group has launched a $16 million residential project on the southern Gold Coast, bringing a new level of luxury to one of the Coast’s most sought-after beachside strips. Comprising a collection of two and three-bedroom apartments, Southbreak is located on the iconic Golden Four Drive in North Kirra and consists of 20 boutique apartments across six storeys including two double-storey penthouses.

Lacey Group director Adam Lacey said the project is the company’s second in the southern corridor, following the success of its 46-apartment project ‘The Jefferson’ in Palm Beach last year. “The southern Gold Coast has experienced unprecedented growth over the past few years and buyers are migrating closer to the border for the lifestyle opportunities that abound,” he said.

“Southbreak is ideally positioned in North Kirra with close proximity to major infrastructure, lifestyle amenities and world-renowned surf breaks such as Snapper, Greenmount and Duranbah. It’s also just a short stroll to the emerging café, restaurant and shopping scene of Kirra Village. “The apartments are carefully designed to complement the physical environment, rather than dominate it. Southbreak will feature four apartments per floor ensuring residents can take full advantage of spacious apartment living with a feeling of exclusivity and privacy. “We expect solid interest from buyers looking to downsize in a relaxed location where they can walk to the beach every morning yet still be in close proximity to major employment nodes, Gold Coast Airport, Southern Cross University, cafes, restaurants, shops, the Gold Coast or M1 highways.”

Lacey Group has enlisted award-winning architects BDA to design the apartments, which boast open plan layouts, striking views and contemporary fittings. “The apartments make the most of natural light, with the majority of floors providing uninterrupted coastal views,” said Mr Lacey. “Each features premium finishes, with an interior palette that emulates the laidback lifestyle of the Gold Coast. Designers have focused on using crisp, light tones to capture the calm coastal hues. “A private rooftop sanctuary featuring a swimming pool, barbeque area and a weatherproof lounge allows all residents to enjoy uninterrupted views of the Gold Coast skyline while a multi-purpose cinema lounge and function space adds to the exclusivity of premium beachside living.”

McGrath Estate Agents’ Tony Holland has been appointed to market the project, with strong enquiry already received in the pre-launch phase. “We’ve received more than 100 enquiries in just two weeks, with the demand experienced in the Palm Beach and Kingscliff precincts now flowing through to Kirra and Coolangatta,” said Mr Holland. “Southbreak ticks all the boxes for investors and owner-occupiers alike, boasting low-density, beachside living in a boutique development on a large holding of land.” Oversized two bedroom apartments in Southbreak are priced from $579,000 and average 136sqm. Generous three bedroom apartments are priced from $895,000 with floor spaces averaging 142sqm. The two, double-storey penthouses are priced from $1,295,000 and average 219sqm. Each apartment includes at least one car space per residence.

Construction of Southbreak is expected to begin in late 2018, with an anticipated completion of late 2019.
