COMPLETED!

Well the official opening was last night, and now Sunland turn their focus to Q2:

Soheil ponders Q2
27Oct05
Q1 developer Soheil Abedian has yet to spend a night in his record-setting tower, yet he's ready to build another this time even bigger.

Opening the 80-level high rise the world's tallest residential build-ing to holidaymakers yesterday, Sunland boss Mr Abedian said the 'sky was the limit'.

"Providing the land and approvals came together, I would be prepared to take it even higher than the Q1," he said.

"This building has turned out even more beautiful than I dreamed.

"Why shouldn't we try it again?

"We never set out to break records with the Q1. We wanted two 40-storey towers then decided one 80- storey tower wouldbe better and wejust happened to be the tallest."

Mr Abedian said despite doubts about the building and its buyers, 358 of the tower's 475 apartments between levels three and 61 settled as planned on October 14.

He said it was the fastest settlement in Queensland and enabled Sunland to repay all of the project's $307 million construction costs after one day.

"We have heard so much criticism that we would never get approval, that we would never get the funding, we would never start construction,the building is sinking or windows are popping out but now we are vindicated," he said.

"All the world's great landmarks were met with such criticism, so perhaps it is a good sign for the Q1."

Mr Abedian said holiday accommodation packages started at $230 a night and bookings were strong.

He praised the one, two and three- bedroom units from level three upwards, but said he was yet to sample the tower's luxury.

"I haven't slept here yet," he said.

"I will when my wife lets me.

"We've been too busy working."

Each of the holiday apartments has a modern decor with glass and granite finishes, stainless steel appliances and a frameless glass balcony enclosure.

Facilities include two lagoon swimming pools, a sandy beach, indoor swimming pool, fitness venue, conference facilities, inhouse theatre and a beach club, which opens in December.

The Q1 spa will open late next month while the retail precinctwill be launched in December, along with Australia's only beachside observation deck, 235m above the ground with 360-degree views from Brisbane to Byron Bay.

The Skylight Room above the observation deck, which is proving popular with brides-to-be, also opens in December.
