New retailers open as the transformation of Royal Pines Marina advances

A bustling Gold Coast landmark of the 1980s and 1990s, the Royal Pines Marina has commenced a major transformation to become a vibrant new waterfront residential, retail and leisure destination.

Developer Sunland Group has commenced construction of Marina Concourse, which will feature twin low-rise apartment buildings overlooking the marina, new retail and dining amenity, expansive landscaped gardens, a swim school, design school, and Sunland Group’s Gold Coast offices. The precinct will also provide a new boat ramp to the Nerang River and Sunland is currently investigating the potential for a future marina development.

Only a short walk to Metricon Stadium and several major Commonwealth Games precincts, the $82 million development is anticipated to be completed in early 2018 before the Games commence.

Sunland Group Managing Director, Sahba Abedian, said construction is well underway on the low-rise apartment buildings, which will feature 110 luxurious apartments and penthouses, the majority with north facing views over the waterfront. “Our vision for Marina Concourse is to create a vibrant, connected waterfront community, which offers unique lifestyle amenities to residents of Royal Pines and those in Benowa, Ashmore, and surrounding areas,” he said. “The majority of apartments are north-east facing overlooking water and feature a mix of two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus study, three-bedroom and three-bedroom plus media residences, including the penthouse residences.”

Mr Abedian revealed, “At the marina level, a collection of dining, retail and recreation spaces will be created for the enjoyment of residents and the community, with direct access to the waterfront. Late last year we were delighted to welcome Espresso Puro café, Superfish Swim School, and Century 21 Central Gold Coast to Marina Concourse, which are all now open for business. Sunland has also opened our newly-expanded Gold Coast offices within the precinct. Future tenants will include a selection of food and boutique retail at the ground level of the residential buildings.”

Following the success of the luxury Abian tower in the Brisbane CBD and the recent sell-out of both Magnoli Residences and The Lakes Residences on the Gold Coast, Mr Abedian said the Group’s portfolio is designed specifically for the owner-occupier market. “In the past few years we have seen the resurgence of the owner-occupier market come to the fore and our portfolio is focused primarily on the high quality craftmanship and locations sought by this segment,” he said.

The twin residential buildings of Marina Concourse comprise a mix of two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus study, three-bedroom and three-bedroom plus media residences, and penthouse apartments on level six. Open plan design, high ceilings and full-height windows allow access to stunning views from every angle. Ground floor apartments feature large terraces with the same timber detailing incorporated into the fences and arbours, a signature Sunland design feature, which is interwoven throughout the development. A pool and adjacent pavilion, privately nestled between Marina Concourse and the Nerang River, are reserved for the pleasure of residents. Prices start from $525,000.

Marina Concourse is the final development within Sunland’s 19-hectare master plan at The Concourse, where the group has delivered six unique residential enclaves over the past eight years.

Every aspect of The Concourse is enhanced by exquisite greenery, from the soaring colonnade of trees along the entry to the estate, to the meticulous perfection of the diamond-shaped garden beds surrounding the marina. “From each enclave delivered at The Concourse, Sunland has learned how to contribute to greater vibrancy and community life in how the residents are brought together, how the residents engage with the wider community, and how the community finds inspiration from such spaces,” Mr Abedian said. “Every aspect of the master plan has been meticulously designed to create an environment of sanctuary and beauty, while creating expansive parklands and green spaces to encourage connectivity. The connection between the interior spaces of each residential precinct and the exterior landscape has been essential to its success, giving each enclave a unique sense of identity and amenity.”

As the second residential tower development within the prestigious Royal Pines community, Marina Concourse draws its inspiration from the multi award-winning Marina Residences, located across the waterfront. “Marina Residences was completed in 2014 and has won seven industry awards, including the National Apartment Complex of the Year Award at the 2016 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards,” he said. “We are seeking to continue this design excellence with Marina Concourse.”

The Royal Pines Marina is superbly positioned only 15 minutes from the Gold Coast’s spectacular surf beaches and leisure precincts. The championship golf course at the neighbouring Royal Pines Resort is renowned as the region’s only 27-hole composite course, permanent home of the ANZ Ladies Masters and other notable tournaments.

Sunland’s other developments in south-east Queensland include The Heights Residences, located within The Heights master-planned parkland community in Pimpama; Shea Residences in St Lucia, Brisbane; and The Terraces, located 10 minutes south of Noosa in Peregian Springs. The Group’s total portfolio comprises in excess of 5,800 residential housing, land and multi-storey products along Australia’s east coast with an estimated end value of $3.8 billion.

The Marina Concourse sales suite is located onsite at Ross Street, Benowa, and is open daily from 10am to 4pm. For more information, phone 1300 400 905 or visit
