David Devine’s strong focus on the prestige property market takes luxury living to the next level with Burly Residences and Royale Gold Coast
David Devine’s decision to focus on upmarket residential developments on the Gold Coast was motivated by the strength of the region’s prestige property market as well as his personal fondness for the area.
This, he says, is the Gold Coast’s time to shine. The leading Australian developer has just launched his second prestigious beachfront apartment development for the Gold Coast, with plans moving fast to develop a prime 2024sqm site on The Esplanade in North Burleigh into the $480m Burly Residences.
Burly Residences is being delivered simultaneously with David’s other signature development, the prestigious $457million Royale Gold Coast on absolute beachfront, currently under construction by Hutchinson Builders at the exclusive, absolute beachfront strip of Northcliffe Terrace in Surfers Paradise.
Both premium residential developments exemplify exactly what prestige property buyers are asking for in a brand-new beachfront apartment development, says Adrian Parsons of TOTAL Property Group, who is managing the apartment sales for Burly Residences and Royale Gold Coast.
“All the important aspects are there; the prime beachfront locations, spacious and stylish apartments with ocean and beach views and six-star resort amenities that include a concierge. These are just a few of the highly desirable features on the wish list of apartment buyers,” Adrian said.
“Royale is now over 80% sold and Burly is receiving strong market acceptance very early due to the premium quality of apartments and amenities as well as the confidence in David’s reputation as a leading developer with an extensive history of delivering high-quality, well-positioned apartments.”
“Quality developers like David who fully understand the market have responded and are delivering.”
Burly Residences is a $480million luxury apartment development, encompassing 101 premium private residences and extensive six-star resort amenities, planned for a large prominent double site with 40 metres of frontage at 264-268 The Esplanade in North Burleigh.
From the statement entry lobby with concierge, through to two whole levels of luxurious six-star residential amenities and up to the top-level penthouses, the extensive design work will deliver a landmark building to the Gold Coast shoreline. Designed by award-winning Koichi Takada Architects, with luxurious bespoke interiors by award-winning interior design studio Mim Design throughout, the impressive 24-level building is meeting all the aspirations of high-end apartment buyers seeking Gold Coast’s premium beachfront apartments.
Priced from $2.2million, apartments at Burly are among the largest brand-new apartments available on the Gold Coast, ranging in size from 141sqm to a stunning 735sqm gross, which is significantly larger than most other developments targeting the top-end owner-occupier market.
David says Burly Residences is inspired by the beautiful North Burleigh Beach and six-star private residences around the world, blending sophisticated cosmopolitan elegance with beachside living.
“We called the building Burly to evoke a sense of nostalgia as it was the original spelling of Burleigh back in the 1840s,” he said.
“The prime location directly across from the beach and parkland required a building design of the utmost architectural excellence. The large double site offered us a rare opportunity to develop a far superior and luxurious product for sophisticated buyers who want to live on the beach in an area like Burleigh Heads, which is now recognised internationally as a premium lifestyle destination.
“We are very excited to announce our partnership with the North Burleigh Surf Life Saving Club to present Burly for apartment buyers to immerse themselves in Burly’s luxurious style and surrounds.”
The Sales Gallery for Burly Residences is now open at North Burleigh Surf Life Saving Club just 100 metres from the Burly Residences development site. Located upstairs in the northern end of the club and accessed through a private door on the beach side, the Sales Gallery is the first full development display of its kind to be exhibited at a surf lifesaving club on the Gold Coast.
An example kitchen, butler’s pantry and ensuite bathroom showcase the luxurious fixtures and finishes throughout Burly’s apartments and a state-of-the-art cinema room takes apartment buyers on a deep dive with film screenings in 270 degrees flying through the expansive residential development and its five-star amenities. A fully interactive architectural and digital model of Burly Residences is a central feature and visitors can experience the panoramic beach views firsthand from the balcony to see what living on the beach at Burly will be like.
David Devine’s long relationship with Hutchinson Builders will see the reputable construction company be appointed to build Burly Residences.
Hutchinson’s is already working on Royale Gold Coast, under construction on absolute beachfront on the Gold Coast’s elite beachfront strip at Northcliffe Terrace between Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach.
The ultra-premium residential tower Royale comprises of 104 premium two, three and four-bedroom apartments across 38 levels, with the top nine floors dedicated to a collection of penthouses and an unprecedented offering of luxurious six-star lifestyle amenities across the first two floors.
Only a limited number of apartments at Royale Gold Coast remain, starting at $4.75m for a three-bedroom plus multipurpose room apartment and upward of $16.95m for the full-floor penthouses.
