David Devine, Managing Director of DD Living, was one of many Aussie real estate experts who observed the unexpected property boom in several Queensland ‘lifestyle’ locations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Gold Coast being one of them.

During this time, Melbourne and Sydney residents realised they could sell their suburban or city homes and purchase a luxurious beachfront apartment on the Gold Coast. This resulted in heightened demand for premium residences on the Coast, followed by a construction boom.

When AD asked David Devine why premium apartment projects have seen prominent and continued success in the Gold Coast, the veteran property developer replied, “The exceptional lifestyle on offer.

“The Gold Coast has matured into a cosmopolitan coastal city with sensational beaches and weather – it’s now a world-class destination to live, work, and play.”

That is the perfect way to sum up the beachside metropolitan’s appeal, with the Gold Coast boasting year-round sunny weather, world-renowned beaches, vibrant nightlife, career opportunities, and seemingly endless entertainment and events. Because of this, there seems to be enduring appeal and demand for homes in the city.

David Devine and his team at DD Living recognised this demand, creating two stunning apartment projects that elevate the Coast’s enviable lifestyle.

What’s more, they are both located on prime beachfront land in two of the Gold Coast’s most popular suburbs.

“The current level of interest from Australians in five and six-star developments with resort-style amenities, including concierge and work-from-home spaces, is stronger than ever on the Gold Coast,” David said to AD.

“We have been responding to the growing demand from empty nesters and downsizers for larger, more luxurious apartments in lifestyle locations.

“Our Royale Gold Coast project was launched to the market at the same time as the pandemic, which was instrumental in attracting thousands of southerners looking to escape the big city lockdowns.”

“This led to an unexpected property boom in Southeast Queensland, and Royale’s apartments were perfectly positioned for prestige property buyers who realised they could sell their suburban or city home and buy a luxurious apartment on the beach.”

Royale Gold Coast sits on a unique corner block on absolute beachfront land in Surfers Paradise, offering 104 world-class residences, including two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments, exclusive beach homes, and opulent penthouses. Its unrivalled address and design grant all residences with prime north-east facing apartments, maximising ocean views and protection from south-easterly winds.

Here, residents can fully embrace the Gold Coast’s renowned lifestyle with resort-style amenities exclusive to those who call Royale home. Two lagoon-style pools overlooking Northcliffe Beach foster an everyday holiday feeling, a wellness centre uplifts your health and wellness, while “Club Royale” features an executive lounge, bar, dining, meeting rooms, and an oceanside terrace perfect for any business needs or to entertain loved ones.

It is no wonder that the visionary beachfront project has attracted buyers far and wide. In fact, Royale is deemed the most advanced development under construction on the Coast’s elite beachfront strip.

“The positive market reaction to Royale encouraged us to look for another prime site in Gold Coast’s southern beach areas,” David revealed.

“We secured another similar location in North Burleigh where we are delivering Burly Residences to meet continued demand for premium beachfront apartments.”

Sitting beachfront on The Esplanade at North Burleigh, Burly Residences presents a mix of two and three-bedroom apartments, skyhomes, and penthouses that float above a globally revered beach.

To reflect its exquisite address, DD Living assembled a first-rate team to curate the project. They collaborated with award-winning design teams Koichi Takada Architects and Mim Design, as well as leading sales and marketing specialists TOTAL Property Group, to deliver Burly Residences.

David and his team were presented with the rare opportunity to purchase Burly’s neighbouring site and amalgamate them into one premium site. This doubled the beachfront frontage to 40 metres, creating a far superior and luxurious product for sophisticated buyers.

“The location opposite the beach and parkland in North Burleigh is highly desirable, offering a quality lifestyle for residents,” David said.

“Gold Coast’s very popular James Street and Burleigh Head National Park are within walking distance, while North Burleigh Surf Life Saving Club is just across the road.”

An impeccable level of attention to detail given to both Burly Residences and Royale Gold Coast elevates their exclusive beachfront locations to six-star status. From their unprecedented level of amenity across two whole floors to the extra-large apartment balconies and sophisticated living spaces with uninterrupted ocean and hinterland views, no stone has been left unturned in the design of Burly Residences and Royale Gold Coast to deliver all the exceptional qualities that prestige property buyers are seeking.

“Every fine detail has been considered to present these world-class apartment buildings on two of Australia’s best beaches,” David added.

Beachfront living is a dream for most Australians, and DD Living allows you to realise that dream and more. Royale and Burly’s spacious, luxurious, and lifestyle-led homes are now selling, with discerning buyers flocking to these once-in-a-lifetime addresses.

Adrian Parsons, Managing Director of TOTAL Property Group – the team managing the sales and marketing for both Royale and Burly – spoke to AD about the high appeal of these beachfront developments, saying, “We are seeing large numbers of empty nesters, mostly from Queensland, who are taking advantage of the strong property market to sell their family homes and right-size into a luxury lifestyle apartment.”

“High net-worth individuals and couples who love the beach are drawn to Royale and Burly for their beach locations – they want to see it from their apartments, walk from their homes onto the beach, and come home to premium resort amenities.

“Ultimately, whether it’s for a permanent home, a weekender, or for holidays – once buyers start doing their research, they discover the locations DD Living is developing are exclusive and have high levels of walkability, presenting a rare opportunity to obtain the ultimate beach lifestyle.”
