It is actually really nice! I would say if this is built it will be the nicest thing on the Gold Coast.

THE chance to own panoramic views of the Gold Coast has sparked a $400 million buying frenzy at Soul Tower.

More than half the tower's 289 luxury apartments have been sold, many snapped up by Brisbane people happy to pay a minimum $1.8 million for a weekender in the sky.

The 77-storey project, due for completion in 2010, will be the second tallest high-rise on the Gold Coast behind Q1.

Soul Surfers Paradise has already set a record price for a penthouse, with a buyer, who wished to remain anonymous, paying $16.85 million for a slice of real estate heaven.

His 987sq m penthouse spans four levels and has its own lift and private rooftop recreation level with a pool, spa and barbecue area.

It also has four bedrooms, a media room and a guest suite.

Juniper Development Group director David Kortlang said combined sales had hit $400 million.

He said most buyers were from southeast Queensland, while New South Wales and Victorian residents accounted for 40 per cent of sales and overseas buyers 10 per cent.

The 240m Soul apartments will feature $100 million of retail space, on the corner of Cavill Ave and The Esplanade.

I would expect to get much deeper.

Building next door is still there ! I thought they lost their court case to remain ages ago !
