Leading Queensland developer Marquee Development Partners has launched a long-awaited luxury apartment project on a prized beachfront site on the southern Gold Coast. 

La Belle Palm Beach, on the Gold Coast’s largest remaining absolute beachfront site which was formerly owned by multiple world motorcycle champion Mick Doohan, will showcase 74 premium beachfront apartments over 14 levels that will take advantage of sweeping views from Surfers Paradise to Coolangatta.

The project situated on a 3300 square metre site with a stunning 40 metres of beach frontage will comprise three, four and five bedroom layouts with living spaces of between 150sqm and 680sqm designs primed for the Gold Coast’s thriving owner-occupier market. The scale of the site has allowed Marquee to infuse a collection of five double-storey beach homes into the La Belle Palm Beach design, each offering up to a generous 388sqm of living space. Apartments will be surrounded by a beach oasis which will be accentuated by the size of the site and the boutique nature of the larger apartment designs.

“Palm Beach has emerged as one of the Gold Coast’s most sought-after markets and La Belle is a world-class project that we have designed to meet sustained demand for premium residences on the southern Gold Coast,” said Jacques Winterburn, Director of Marquee Development Partners.

“We’re taking full advantage of this extremely rare site to create a residential masterpiece that not only meets the needs of discerning buyers, but also remains true to the spirit that sets the southern Gold Coast apart.

“La Belle Palm Beach stands as Marquee's crowning achievement, marking our 11th venture on the Gold Coast. 

"With seven successful projects already completed and three more sold out and underway, we’re excited to be presenting another development that we know will resonate with owner-occupiers, as well as people seeking a holiday home," she said. 

Marquee has crafted a project to capture the unique appeal of the location, the essence of which has attracted some of the Gold Coast’s most astute buyers over the years. The Palm Beach development comes on the heels of a sellout of the company’s latest Gold Coast project, the $126 million Monterey Kirra Beach, which is earmarked for one of the last remaining beachfront sites at Kirra. Apartments at Monterey sold for an average of $5.79 million each during the last 3 months. Marquee has already fielded inquiries from local downsizers and interstate buyers for La belle Palm Beach ahead of the project’s official launch announced today.

“The interest in this site and this project has been quite amazing with many enquiries coming from several buyers whom have purchased in our earlier projects, underscoring the trust and satisfaction with Marquee and the projects we deliver,” said Azura Griffen, sales manager at Marquee Development Partners.

“We are seeing demand for our products holding up extremely well, especially for beachfront apartments where we know there is an acute shortage of supply. 

"Quite simply this is the largest absolute beachfront project on the Gold Coast and we have designed a boutique tower around the scale of the site with a range of well-considered lifestyle amenities within the building to suit owner-occupiers,” she said.

Designed by award-winning Cottee Parker Architects and detailed by BDA Architecture, the highly anticipated development is set to offer a diverse range of world-class amenities including a heated outdoor pool and spa, multiple teppanyaki dining bars and entertaining areas, and a resident’s lounge with a billiard room, bar and a large screen TV, designed for entertaining and hosting gatherings.

La Belle Palm Beach will also feature a wellness centre with a state-of-the-art gymnasium, yoga and Pilates movement room, Nordic and infrared saunas, indoor hydrotherapy hot pool and two cold plunge immersion baths. Additionally, a hotel style lobby with arrival lounge and fully-equipped private offices that meet work-from-home needs. La Belle Palm Beach is located at 332 The Esplanade in the highly coveted North Palm Beach area. It is a tranquil residential oasis strategically positioned between the famous retail and dining precincts of Palm Beach and Burleigh Heads.

“La Belle Palm Beach presents a unique opportunity where residents can seamlessly step straight onto the sand without navigating through roads or pedestrian pathways,” said Azura.

“Situated next to a thriving small community surf lifesaving club and cafe, it provides the rare privilege of enjoying a year-round patrolled beach right at your doorstep and a sensational spot to catch up with friends for a café latte,” she said.

Marquee is anticipating a start to construction for La Belle Palm Beach in July 2024. Apartments are priced from $2.15m.
