Living on the beachfront is many individuals' dream. To be steps from the sand while moments from vibrant coastal amenities is the ideal for most when looking for a home. What better place to turn to in Australia than the Glitter Strip – the Gold Coast.

MIRA Residences, developed by award-winning Frank Developments, boasts a coveted absolute beachfront address, rising above the Gold Coast’s revered Surfers Paradise coastline. Its address is enough to deem it a prime residential option. Yet, Frank Developments, collaborating with acclaimed architects, takes it a step further to curate an exclusive collection of just 12 multi-level residences of uncompromising quality.

Discerning buyers have loved this prized collection, with eight of the 12 homes sold, equating to $66 million in sales.

When AD asked Frank Licastro, Managing Director of Frank Developments, what exactly about MIRA has attracted buyers, the property developer replied, “It’s the exclusiveness of the building with only 12 units.

“We have consistency in our floor plate types, which are these vertical beach homes on absolute beachfront.”

MIRA Residences offers 12 two-storey residences, with just four four-bedroom homes remaining, comprising four and a half bathrooms and three car-parking spaces. Each residence boasts 376 sqm of open-plan living space, complete with a spacious oceanfront balcony.

What’s more, MIRA is now under construction, meaning the lucky few who get to call this address home can move in late 2025. 

“We have seen a variety of buyer demographics,” Frank revealed.

“Our sales data indicates that we’ve had significant interest from downsizers and young professionals who are all owner-occupiers.”

Jono and Abbey are young professionals who purchased a home at MIRA. “We fell in love with MIRA the moment we saw it,” they said. 

“The sleek design, thoughtful layouts, and stunning views from every part of the apartment surpassed our expectations.

“We also appreciate the access to the beach and surf club. 

“It truly feels like home.”

Renowned Ferro Chow Architects and BYculprit lent their design expertise to forge these residences. The result is meticulously designed homes that boast modern finishes, spacious layouts, and state-of-the-art amenities, appealing to those looking for comfort, style, and convenience in their homes.
