Marquee Development Partners has marked the momentous completion of its third Gold Coast project, with a ribbon-cutting on the site of The Catalina, Chevron Island. 

The Acting Mayor Cr Donna Gates today joined Marquee to commemorate the official delivery of what has become the first in a spate of art deco-inspired developments to beeline onto the island which is rapidly emerging as the city’s arts and cultural capital. 

“It’s great to see buildings like this which connect the new residents directly into this amenity and culture. The Catalina is a great example of a medium density development that helps provide housing options and choices for locals to downsize, upgrade or purchase their first home,” said Acting Mayor Cr Donna Gates.


The Catalina comprises 75 apartments over nine storeys, unlocking stunning views across the river, city skyline & hinterland, and providing residents with access to a range of amenities including a pool, gym, private dining, cinema, and rooftop residents club.

All The Catalina apartments were sold prior to construction commencing. Buyers represented an even mix of locals and interstate purchasers, with many relocating from Greater Sydney up to the Gold Coast.

“The Catalina helped provide an achievable housing option and choice for locals to downsize, upgrade or purchase their first home, without compromising on quality or amenity,” said Marquee Sales Manager, Azura Griffen.  

Local Queensland builder Rawcorp delivered the nine-storey development after construction was fast-tracked on the back of strong sales. “We are delighted to have delivered yet another collection of high-quality residences for our buyers who share our passion for this unique pocket of the Gold Coast,” said Mrs Griffen. 

“Rawcorp has done a remarkable job at bringing our visionary development to life and we are very proud to welcome The Catalina’s very first residents into their stunning new homes.” The Catalina’s first residents were welcomed into their new island sky-homes back in December 2021. 


The Catalina marks Marquee and Rawcorp’s third completed project on the Gold Coast together, with Rawcorp now underway on the delivery of Marquee’s sold-out Palm Beach developments, Palm Beach Residences & Northshore, which are due for completion in 2023. 

“Rawcorp has an impeccable track record with the timely and reliable delivery of projects across Southeast Queensland, and we look forward to carrying forward this partnership into future Marquee projects,” said Marquee Development Director, Steve Harrison.

The Catalina is Marquee’s second Chevron Island development, following on from the sell-out success of Stanhill Residences, which was also delivered by Rawcorp and was awarded the 2020 Master Builders Queensland Housing and Construction Award for the Best Medium Density Apartment Development
