Just 100m from the ocean shore, mere moments from some of Broadbeach’s most idyllic beaches, sits 123OBR. Rising an impressive 17 storeys, this sleek, vertical village redefines modern beach house living. 

The aspirational development is the result of an ambitious collaboration between Brisbane-based developer Bottega Group and world-renowned architecture firm Woods Bagot, representing the epitome of luxury living. 


Featuring only 12 ultra-luxe full-floor residences, a two-storey Pool House with a private pool at the ground level and an extravagant two-storey Penthouse with a private rooftop and infinity pool, this development takes the best of typical beach house living and gives it an inimitable high-end flair. 

Beachside living with your head in the clouds


Each full-floor apartment boasts three generous bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and a spacious, open-plan kitchen including a butler's pantry, living and dining area that will be an entertainer’s dream. The homes are surrounded by full-height windows and balconies that overlook the pristine ocean. 

The Penthouse owner will literally be living with their head in the clouds. The penthouse is perched at the development’s highest point. Serving as the jewel in 123OBR’s crown, this opulent beach house in the sky spans four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two powder rooms and multiple living and dining areas. The outdoor area includes a bespoke rooftop pool with a bar and lounge area. As the owner of the 123OBR Penthouse, you can enjoy your own private basement garage comfortably accommodating ten cars, with enough space to house a workshop, or an extravagant wine cellar - the choices are endless. 

“The sheer size of the penthouse imparts instant impact, which is further emphasised by elaborate, 3-metre-high ceilings that add even more volume to the space while inviting the show-stopping vista from the ocean and hinterland in. Elegant gallery wall corridors, floor-to-ceiling glazing in the living and dining space, along with the warming fireplace and dedicated areas for a private study and gym space, completes the experience,” says Andrew Erwin, NPA Projects Director. 

An indulgent material palette 


The generous double-glazing draws sightlines towards the mesmerising horizon, with Woods Bagot’s calming coastal interiors bringing the enviable beachside location inside. One look at the interiors, and it’s clear why the firm is so renowned. The design marries the relaxed textures of the site with opulent finishes, paying meticulous attention to the finer details. 

Extra-high ceilings feature overhead, while the abundance of natural light and generous floor plans add to the sense of grandeur. Underfoot is either 150-year old French Oak hardwood timber flooring or 100% wool carpet. Throughout the home, custom champagne brass finishes, natural stone, warm bespoke lighting and terrazzo tiles add a subtle sense of drama. 

The kitchen is anchored by a spectacular stone island that is as stunning as it is functional. V-Zug was the natural choice for all kitchen and laundry appliances due to its trademark Swiss efficiency and its commitment to sustainability, timeless aesthetic, user-friendly interfaces and durability. As a result, the appliance list is both premium and extensive. 


Coastal grandeur


“123OBR features some classic beach house features wrapped up in an elevated, modern design that exudes the opulence of beachside living,” explains Andrew. “The divide of public and private areas in the home sees all living spaces facing east, encapsulating ocean views, while the private sleeping pods are located at the hinterland end of the building, providing a cosy, private escape conducive to rest and relaxation.”

This beach house in the sky is sure to delight even the most discerning of buyers. Located perfectly to embrace all the best of the sea, sky and sand, 123OBR is currently under construction and is expected to be completed in 2023.
