Residential tower on the horizon for Palm Beach

Residential development is continuing to grow in Palm Beach, situated at the southern end of the Gold Coast, as plans for a 10-storey beachfront tower comprising 16 apartments, including a sprawling double-storey penthouse, are filed.

Replacing two two-storey homes, the development will sit on an 824sqm site on The Esplanade.


The proposal has been lodged by an entity linked to Marwan Chanine, the managing director of family-owned, Sydney-based developer Chanine Developments.

“Palm Beach is currently transitioning from ageing and under-developed building forms to more intense urban development outcomes that are more reflective of the area’s characteristics and services,” a planning report said.

“The proposed development is consistent with this emerging pattern of development.”

According to the submitted plans, the tower would accommodate a mix of 15 three-bedroom apartments and a five-bedroom penthouse on levels 8 and 9 with exclusive access to a landscaped rooftop terrace with a pool and covered barbecue and alfresco area.

On the ground floor, the proposal features 197sqm of communal recreation space on the northern side of the site, including a residents’ pool, deck areas and day beds. Three basement levels would provide 55 carparking spaces.

The midrise tower scheme has been designed by CD Architects with slab edges adorned with a distinctive shark’s nose detail and curved feature walls integrated into the building’s facades and layered to break up the bulk and scale of the podium.

“Emulating the sinuous movements found in nature, the design manifests in a curvilinear facade that echoes the undulating contours of both sand dunes and waves,” a submitted architectural statement said.
