Great little project this one. Appartments are in the 3.5million+ range, slightly cheaper then Jade due to the lack of pool in each unit. Personally I think it is in a slightly better spot then Jade in that it's not in front of a patrolled beach. Also you don't have the Q1 shaddow problem in the arvo!

I take your point re location compared to Jade - but while the apartments are well priced, those buildings either side are very ordinary (i.e. well down market) for this neighbourhood.
The apartments are somewhat smaller too but from the specification sheets, they would appear to be of a very similiar fit out standard, apart from, as you say, the pool.
Is there a height restriction in place for the absolute beach front buildings on Northcliffe Terrace?

Bad news - these apartments are 381 sq metres at a price of AUD4.8 million.

Completion is expected on this low rise 12 floor in early 2008.

Also the top 2 floors are being retained by the developer for personal use - always a good sign for a potential purchaser.

These renders are of the 12 story tower. I'm not sure whether this has been increased to 14 or its 12 + ground + basement. Anyway looks great for a small beachfront tower I think:
From the architect
The design was to take advantage of the beach and ocean views.
THE BRIEF :
The client purchased the absolute beachfront site in Surfers Paradise in two stages as it was originally two sites with flats dating back to the 70’s. The brief was to create the most unique and stylish apartments taking most advantage of the beach and ocean views. The building was to contain 12 apartments in a one per floor arrangement. The architectural style was to be contemporary with materials and finishes reflective of the quality and style expected in multi-million dollar properties.
THE SOLUTION :
As maximizing the beach and ocean views was paramount, the siting of the building, it’s planning and orientation was critical in the design process. Rooms to the rear were skewed at 45° to the main building orientation to achieve sight lines north-east and south-east to the beach. This produced a plan form that resulted in external wall planes which addressed the street at an angle rather than straight on. The introduction of building materials such as powder coated aluminium cladding, bookleaf stone, rendered and painted masonry, glazing and off-form concrete, reinforced a contemporary built form with strong horizontal and vertical elements which emphasised sensitivity to the urban environment and human scale. Links to the beach and water are reinforced through the extensive use of pools and water features surrounding the building externally and in the apartments themselves.
Soft landscaping elements were chosen to reflect existing surrounding vegetation and for their resistance to harsh coastal elements. The landscape of the locality is further reinforced through the use of hard landscaping elements depicting sand dunes with whispy dune grasses in bas relief on precast panels.
THE OUTCOME :
A contemporary building form well articulated through the use of strong elements, colour, materials and textures. Residents will enjoy a lifestyle in an apartment which takes maximum advantage of the views while addressing issues such as cross-ventilation, protection from harsh southerly and south-easterly winter winds, reducing solar heat gains by protecting east facing openings and minimizing west facing openings.
The urban character and streetscape will be enhanced through the use of smaller scale structures at the street and the mixture of materials, colours and textures and landscaping reinforcing the “beach” location.
