Niña is the latest Chevron Island apartment development to hit the small Gold Coast island inland from Surfers Paradise.
It’s the second development on the island by the Sydney-based Macquarie York, who are just a few apartments away from selling out their first Chevron Island project, Allure.
Niña, less than 200 metres from Allure at 8-10 Parnero Street, will home 73 apartments in a 22-level building designed by Plus Architecture.
Plus, led locally by Danny Juric, cleverly designed Niña so every apartment can capture views of the ocean. They call Niña’s design “coastal sophistication with barefoot luxury,” with one of the main design drivers the timeless curves, which will stand the test of time.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments with over 80 sqm of internal living space start from $700,000, with the three-bedroom apartments spanning over 116 sqm priced from $950,000.
Levels one to seven will have four apartments per floor, three-bedder at the front of the building, and two-bedders with their own media rooms located at the rear of the building. This is where Plus’ clever design comes in. The two-beds will have balconies that extend on the side of the building, allowing for views of the ocean.
From level eight, the building will have a four metre set-back. Levels eight to 15 will home four two-bedroom apartments per floor, before hitting level 16 where the large sub-penthouse style apartments kick in.
There will still be two two-bedders at the back, but spanning the width of the building will be a half-floor, three-bedroom apartment, with two balconies, one off the master suite which will have its own walk in wardrobe and ensuite, and one off the open plan kitchen, living and dining room. These apartments will also have a media room.
There are two two-level penthouses from level 21. Downstairs is one of the bedrooms, and the main living, kitchen and dining area. Upstairs is another two bedrooms, and another outdoor terrace with its own plunge pool.
On this level is also an open rooftop will be further amenity, including a wet edge, resort-style pool with day beds, a sunken firepit space with built in seating, and a barbecue terrace, and with seating.
The town planner, Urban Planning Services, said Plus designed the building based on a local coastal vernacular, playing off the image of surrounding modern developments.
“Niña is beautiful, elegant and feminine, but with an undeniable strength and presence,” Plus Architecture director Danny Juric said.
“From the very beginning, we set out to create a building that was truly individual and boldly stepped away from the traditional interpretations of what Gold Coast living embodied.”
