The first stage of the $380 million Kirra Beach Hotel redevelopment has been launched to the Gold Coast market following huge interest which has seen more than 1000 registrations of interest in the 118 luxury apartments.

The luxury $200 million Miles Residences will capture the distinctive vibe of the highly anticipated mixed-use development which will create the first “destination precinct” on the southern Gold Coast for many years, according to its developers. The luxury apartments are targeting predominantly owner-occupiers and offer spectacular views across the Gold Coast from its location on one of Australia’s most famous north-facing beaches.

The project’s marketing team, headed by Tim Keenan of Keenan & Co, has been overwhelmed with more than 1000 inquiries prior to the official market launch. “The interest has been phenomenal and reflective not only of the standout design of the apartments but the prized Kirra location and strong national and international interest in the owner-occupier and downsizer market,” he said.

The apartment tower will be launched in the same stage as the new hotel and pavilion, and will be accompanied by smaller curated retail tenancies, to create a rejuvenated beating heart for Kirra and the southern Gold Coast.

All residences, designed by the renowned architect Woods Bagot, bask in the generous natural light while taking in spectacular views of Kirra Beach and Kirra Point, through to Snapper Rocks, as well as the Gold Coast city skyline to the north and the hinterland to the west.

The building will feature stunning amenities including a 25-metre, resort-style pool on the third level looking straight over the Kirra beach surf break, also with views to Burleigh Heads and the Gold Coast skyline. “Each residence perfectly captures and celebrates the location,” said KTQ Group development director Jeremy Holmes.

Miles Residences is a prelude to what KTQ has planned for the site, with a dedication to recreating the essence of Kirra Beach Hotel as a focal point for the local community. “This is an iconic site that deserves a real commitment to design and its execution. Our whole team are working to ensure the precinct atmosphere reflects the existing culture and vibe that we love about Kirra,” says Mr Holmes.
