Gold Coast is looking very American as time progresses. Good building nonetheless!

Soul in heart of Surfers - Juniper leads rejuvenation of Gold Coasts iconic centre
16 January 2010
The Courier-Mail

SEVERAL milestones have been reached as construction powers ahead at Juniper Group's Soul development in Surfers Paradise.

The most recent reached was the opening of the new sales gallery and retail precinct, as well as the rising of the tower above its surrounds.

The $850 million project celebrated a "soft opening" of the retail precinct on Christmas Eve with the display centre and surf labels Rip Curl and Rush Surf opening their doors ahead of the full launch later this year.

Rising 77 storeys, the development will comprise 288 apartments and 40 retail outlets upon completion in 2011.

Juniper Group sales and marketing manager David Kortlang said the opening of several retail tenancies and the sales gallery as well as the construction on the Soul tower were important milestones for the development.

"For the first time we can now introduce new owners and potential buyers of apartments to Soul and the new Esplanade from the gallery," he said.

"We are more than half way through the construction of the retail component with the objective to have the bulk of the shops open by Easter this year.

"The residential tower development, together with Soul's spectacular retail complex, epitomises the future of retail innovation and we are looking forward to reaching more milestones as construction continues throughout the year." The remaining retail tenancies will comprise a mix of restaurants and leading fashion stores, while Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum is due to open in the basement soon.

The residential component of the development has four levels of finishes which rises in calibre with the tower.

The Beach Collection on levels four to 39 draws its name from its proximity to the surf, sand and Esplanade, while the Sky Collection on level 40 and from levels 43-59, is named for its panoramic views that can be enjoyed from the apartments.

Levels 41 and 42 feature the Beach House Collection, which are double-storey beach homes featuring the Sub-penthouse Collection level of finish.

The Sub-penthouse Collection can be found on levels 60-68.

However, the ultimate standard of appointment is in the two penthouses on levels 69-70 and 70-73.

Whatever the level of finish, all apartments have a luxurious design with floor-to-ceiling windows, expansive balconies and an open-plan layout for a free flow throughout the living spaces.

Mr Kortlang said sales of the tower apartments had been strong with in excess of $425 million worth of sales to date.

"The Global Financial Crisis made certain 2009 was a slow year for everybody but we've seen a major resurgence of interest in Soul with some great sales results throughout December and over the Christmas period," he said.

"The opening of the retail precinct and the Juniper display centre has seen a revitalisation in sales and a lot of interest has been coming from overseas buyers from countries such as China, Indonesia and New Zealand." In the heart of the Gold Coast, the development is part of the multi-billion dollar revitalisation of Surfers Paradise.

Mr Kortlang said Soul represents the next phase in the evolution of Surfers Paradise.

"Upon completion in 2011, Soul will represent the ultimate Australian lifestyle, combining sun, surf and sand with glamour, fashion and fine dining," he said.

In addition to having first-class retail facilities and one of Queensland's best beaches on their doorstep, residents will have access to the myriad of resort-style facilities within Soul.

These include pool and spa, barbecue area, and indoor lap pool, gym, spa and steam room.

Surf shops are sold on Soul
31 December 2009
The Gold Coast Bulletin

TWO new surf shops have opened in Queensland's largest retail precinct, the $850 million Soul tower.

The two shops - Rip Curl and Rush Surf - are among the first tenants to move into Juniper Group's $120 million retail precinct.

Old favourite Ripley's Believe it or Not will return to the old Raptis Plaza site in the new year, securing a spot in the shopping centre's basement.

Soul is a proposed 77-storey tower which is being developed by Juniper Group, based on the Sunshine Coast, and constructed by Melbourne's Grocon company.

Juniper's 85sqm sales centre opened last month - the first shop to officially open its doors within the precinct.

``The opening of Rip Curl and Rush Surf heralds the beginning of a new era of shopping paradise on the Gold Coast,'' said Juniper Group joint managing director Shaun Juniper, pictured.

``The world famous tourist strip has long been a shopping icon but its about to enter a whole new world of style, fashion and excitement.

``The retail precinct will deliver a mix of boutique fashion, designer label shopping and fine dining on a revitalised beachfront esplanade to create a shopping precinct that is unrivalled.

``We're delighted to have attracted top brand names like Rip Curl and Rush Surf to this iconic development and we look forward to welcoming more tenants in the future.''

Surfers Paradise Broadbeach Chamber of Commerce president Laura Younger said the Soul retail precinct would breathe new life into the eastern end of the mall.

``It is so good to see that some of them are open for the holidays and it is such a good long term investment for Surfers,'' she said.

Juniper Group Retail Property Portfolio Manager Lorraine Malloch said the surf labels had signed leases worth $2 million a year.

Rip Curl has made its new shop a double storey flagship store while Rush has spent $1 million fitting out its new premises.

The precinct will have more than 40 retail outlets over 7600 sqm.

Mr Juniper said that 4390sqm of leasing space remained.

Soul will feature 114m of beachfront on The Esplanade and a 55m frontage to Cavill Mall.

It is due for completion in mid-2011, with in excess of $425 million worth of apartment sales to date. It joins the under-construction Hilton twin tower in sprucing up the Cavill Mall area.

THIS IS SO GC BETCH!

I like Gold Coast, all that was weird and not cool to me when I visited were all those conifer? pine? trees. Palms would have look a lot more stylish

But I guess thats what makes it unique from all the other sub tropical cities..

I also think palm trees would be an upgrade from pine trees. But yes, they do drop branches, and are a nuisance...

Anyway, now to the progress of Soul building. To answer some questions.

having just visited Gold Coast last night, I walked past the now quite large Soul Building. There is roman numerals on the side of the building indicating which floor they are up to. They are up to floor 27. The base of the building looks fairly solid. And it looks like alot of the new shops will be opening very soon. I'm guessing about a months time.

The whole development looks VERY upper class and nice.

I will be down t here in about another month or so. Hopefully by then, the exterior of the lower floors will be complete and I will upload some pictures!

Why / how does it look American?

Australia is very American anyway, especially in the way of lifestyles :-|
