Optimus Developments has unveiled its $65 million beachfront project 31 Broadbeach. The luxurious 20-level building has beachfront views and an elevated ground floor beach house, 14 full-floor apartments, six half-floor apartments and a double-storey penthouse.

Global architect firm Woods Bagot made its debut into the Gold Coast residential market through the delivery of 31 Broadbeach. Woods Bagot Associate Principal David Lee said the project was architecturally designed to appeal to a mature demographic with sophisticated taste and a desire for luxury. “These homes will be attractive to design-savvy clientele who appreciate fine things, with a clean aesthetic and a minimal approach,” Lee said.

The project’s interior design is by Melbourne-based practice Carr. Carr’s Associate and Lead Designer Aaron Wooster said the developer and its project managers welcomed the concept and design from inception. “From the beginning, we wanted to design interiors that were considered and deliberately enhanced the natural beauty the site offered,  the location of this project is incredibly unique, and the product mix of half- and floor-floor apartments also offered an interesting opportunity,” Wood said.

Each open-plan residence features 2.7 metre high ceilings, while the passage ways and corridors will be used to create vertical framed views from almost every space to the sea, sky and sand. Lucky residents will also be able to benefit from an exclusive rooftop with a heated lap pool and BBQ recreational zones overlooking the coast and hinterland, as well as creative surfboard storage mechanisms and outdoor retreat-style showers at sea level.
