More towers rising on the Gold Coast

  • Hutchinson Builders has been announced as the firm to deliver the $57M Cala Dei
  • Sprye Group has also proposed plans for an 18 storey development at Main Beach
  • Emerson will be 27 apartments over 13 levels, with a north-facing aspect at Kirra

Construction on the Gold Coast’s latest residences will begin next month, following a four-week off the plan sell-out.

Brisbane-based Spyre Group’s Cala Dei project is set to rise on the site currently occupied by Komune Resort, which will be demolished to make way for the construction of 12 storeys of luxury 2-& 3-bedroom residences.

Hutchinson Builders has been announced as the construction firm to deliver the $57 million project, with the delivery of the 30 apartments expected for completion in the first quarter of 2023.

“We are thrilled to have Hutchinson’s on board to deliver our latest Gold Coast project following the extraordinary sell-out,” said Spyre Group Director Andrew Malouf.

As Australia’s largest privately-owned construction company, Hutchinson Builders has delivered a dynamic and diverse portfolio of projects and have teamed up to deliver a landmark project for Coolangatta.

“Cala Dei is a testament to Spyre Group’s ability to create luxury homes that complement the local area,” said Levi Corby, Gold Coast Manager at Hutchinson Builders.

“The re-introduction of luxury apartments to the southern end of the Coast is exciting to see, it’s a privilege to be part of that change. We’re grateful to Spyre Group for allowing us to be a part of their continued vision of delivering luxury residential living on the Gold Coast.”

Cala Dei has become one of the quickest selling projects on the Gold Coast, recording the second-highest price ever fetched for an apartment south of Mermaid Beach with its $7.1 million penthouse sale.

New 18-storey for Main Beach

Meanwhile, Spyre Group is also filing plans with the Gold Coast City Council for a bespoke new development at Main Beach.

The Brisbane-based developer has proposed plans for an 18 storey, one-per-floor development at 3640 Main Beach Parade.

Designed by DKO Architects and comprising of just 15 residences, the proposed development is set to inject a “touch of architectural excellence” to the waterfront strip, the developers said in a statement.

“The slender design showcases an impressive use of space while maintaining an exceptionally boutique living arrangement for residents, set on a sensational corner parcel of land overlooking the Main Beach shoreline,” said Mr Malouf.

After Hemingway, have Emerson

The coveted Kirra beachfront strip will soon welcome another project with the unveiling of Hirsch & Faigen’s second Gold Coast project, Emerson, which has already generated substantial uptake.

The Melbourne based developers made waves with their debut GC project after selling out the Hemingway in Palm Beach.

Only 27 apartments are on offer over 13 levels, with a north-facing aspect across a canopy of Norfolk pines onto the Kirra shoreline and the Pacific Ocean.

“Kirra is unique in that it’s one of the only Gold Coast suburbs to have a beachfront facing true north, which brings with it an incredible opportunity to seize direct views across the ocean, the curvature of the coastline and the distant hinterland all at once – while providing sensational sunrises and sunsets,” said Daniel Faigen, director of Hirsch & Faigen.

Emerson will comprise four apartments per floor on level 2 and 3 – rising to a collection of half-floor apartments occupying levels 5 to 12, priced at $2.95 million to $3.35 million.
