Gold Coast apartment development, Riverfront Residences at Carrara, is set to redefine waterfront living on the surf city’s main river, with luxury architecturally-designed apartments by renowned Brisbane-based Kris Kowalski Architects. 

Riverfront Residences is a lifestyle development of 106 apartments across two buildings and six floors on nearly two acres of prime riverfront land at 574 – 586 Nerang-Broadbeach Road with around 75m of river frontage. 

Riverfront Residences’ developer QY Developments saw the property as an opportunity to create a lifestyle community which showcased the best of its location. 

Michael Guo of QY Developments, also based in Brisbane, said the first thing they did to achieve their vision was appoint a talented team of consultants to bring the Riverfront Residences’ vision to life. 

“We wanted to create a style of living that is sought after by locals with a design that blends comfortably with the character of the area, so we engaged one of Queensland’s leading architects Kris Kowalski and internationally-recognised project managers Gleeds to form a strong development team to create Riverfront Residences,” he said. 

“Riverfront Residences has been designed to offer functional and luxurious living spaces with the look and feel of a spacious home, accompanied by all the amenities of riverfront apartment living.” 

Kris Kowalski Architects has been providing architectural consulting services throughout Australia and internationally since 1991, forging a reputation of excellence across a variety of projects in residential and commercial architecture. 

Managing Director, Kris Kowalski, said the Riverfront Residences’ site on Gold Coast’s main river presented a unique opportunity to design a development that embraced all of the sites natural features. 

“We design buildings that are timeless, with flexible living spaces, great indoor-outdoor living and high-quality finishes,” Mr Kowalski said. 

“In designing Riverfront Residences, we have showcased the best of its location by integrating the great site asset of the Nerang River into the overall design of the landscape and ground floor entertainment and recreation areas to create a private oasis that takes advantage of the expansive views and vistas from various levels of the buildings. 

“These apartments are designed with a due north aspect with the top two levels stepped back in height progression to give apartments direct living room and balcony views to the Nerang River, Royal Pines Golf Course, Gold Coast Botanic Gardens and out to the Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach city skylines.” 

Now for sale off the plan, the apartments feature coastal and hinterland themes with materials and finishes chosen to deliver affordable luxury apartments that enhance the overall design theme of the Riverfront Residences. 

Riverfront Residences Marketing Manager and TOTAL Property Group Managing Director, Adrian Parsons, said the development has been designed with the owner-occupier in mind for the local market. 

“As we see growth in apartment lifestyle living here on the Gold Coast, premium waterfront properties like Riverfront Residences are highly sought after,” he said. 

“These luxury apartments provide an opportunity for residents to live on the river with low-maintenance living which is perfect for young professionals, downsizers and those who want the lock-and-leave lifestyle as well as having recreational options on their doorstep. 

“The Gold Coast is known for entrepreneurial small-business owners and with more and more people working from home, an apartment building’s design is one of the key attractions for these type of buyers, as well as greater functionality and amenity – and Riverfront Residences delivers on that.”

Future residents of Riverfront Residences will have access to a range of lifestyle facilities on site, including a luxury infinity edge riverside swimming pool within a large pool deck area, timber boardwalk on the river’s edge, yoga lawn and outdoor gym, an outdoor kitchen and barbeque area, a jetty, and generous storage for light watercraft available for purchase. 

Centrally located at Carrara, Riverfront Residences is just a short walk from Metricon Stadium and the newly developed Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre, just seven minutes away from the M1 motorway for an easy drive to Bryon Bay and Brisbane, and close to public transport links that will take residents to Gold Coast’s favourite spots. 

The luxury development’s onsite Sales and Display Centre is now open daily between 10am and 3pm, or by appointment, at 574 – 586 Nerang Broadbeach Road in the Gold Coast suburb of Carrara, with two and three bedroom apartments available from $489,000.
