In recent years, the southern tip of the Gold Coast has undergone significant urban renewal and gentrification, spearheaded by high demand and limited real-estate parcels available.

Rockpool Rainbow Bay caters to this high demand, with ultra-luxurious residences forged to the highest calibre by Joe Adsett Architects and boasting a highly sought-after location.

The tower is expected to come out of the ground this year.
