The Robina apartment market continues to fire, with the second stage of Bohème Apartments to be fast-tracked to market on the back of soaring demand as more than a billion dollars of investment is poured into the area.
Robina Group will this week release 77 two and three bedroom waterside apartments in the new nine level tower, after all 52 apartments in the seven level tower one were snapped up off the plan by a mix of owner occupiers and interstate investors to the tune of $26 million.
Situated 250 metres from Robina Town Centre in the $250 million CityVillage community, the ultra-modern Bohème Apartments received full planning approval from Gold Coast City Council in March.
Demand for Bohème has echoed the stellar success of the wider CityVillage community, which has posted more than $100 million in sales to a broad range of buyers keen to take advantage of the rapid growth underway in Robina.
Robina Group Director Tony Tippett says buyers are racing to secure property to take advantage of the significant investment underway and planned for the suburb.
"Buyers are lining up to get in now and be part of the immense future growth potential of Robina, with the property market underpinned by major commercial development in the retail, medical and mixed-use sectors," he said.
"Just last week, Australian Unity Group announced a new private hospital for Robina, adding to projects already underway including the expansion of Gold Coast City’s premier shopping centre, Robina Town Centre, Robina Automall and commercial projects such as CityPods and The Base.
"Collectively, those projects alone represent many hundreds of millions of dollars of investment and along with other commercial and residential developments in the area, the current investment is estimated to be to the value of a billion dollars.
“Effectively, this will mean even more lifestyle and employment opportunities in an area that is already a leading hub within Gold Coast City."
Mr Tippet said Bohème was drawing interest from a broad range of purchasers, who recognised not only the growth potential of Robina and Gold Coast City, but the unparalleled lifestyle benefits on offer.
"Gold Coast City has been identified by independent property pundits as one of the best property investment prospects Australia-wide, with affordable prices compared to the southern capitals and a population tipped to double by 2050," he said.
"Interstate buyers in particular see the opportunity. They recognise the value and high quality they can secure here."
Mr Tippett said the entire Robina community had been 'designed from the ground up' over 35 years to ensure cohesion and vibrancy, and its position as a place to live, work and play without the need for a car.
"Walkability is at the heart of every project and our apartments and homes are always designed with residents in mind. Bohème is just 250 metres from Robina Town Centre and our buyers love the fact Gold Coast City's top private schools and one of Australia's leading private universities are right on the doorstep for their families," he said.
The new Bohème tower will include a collection of six unique two-level urban terrace apartments at street level and a cafe, integrated with a podium-level retreat featuring a lakeside saltwater pool, barbeque and recreation area.
Buyers can experience the project first-hand before construction even begins, with a full-size two-bedroom display suite, styled by The Block's Carlene and Michael Duffy, now open and showcasing the striking design, high quality and latest interior design trends.
Robina residential sales manager Azura Griffen said Bohème ticked all the boxes for buyers, with a highly sophisticated and functional design complemented by an amenity-rich location just a stone’s throw from Robina Town Centre.
"We have hand selected high quality finishes from floor to ceiling including Ilve Italian handmade cooking appliances, chrome tapware, integrated dishwasher, high ceilings, timber grain flooring and 100 per cent wool carpet," she said.
"The designs are spacious, with generous balconies large enough to fit a 10-seater dining table and ensuites to both bedrooms, along with extra storage, in each two bedroom apartment.
"The quality inside is matched by the absolute prime location in central Robina, with every convenience you could need at the doorstep.
Apartments in Bohème are priced from $449,000.
