Hottest residential developments on the Gold Coast

THE Gold Coast may be known for its soaring skyscrapers and apartment buildings but huge population forecasts have put a strain on its property market.

Hundreds of new homes are under construction within new apartment and townhouse projects as developers race to address the state’s chronic housing shortage.

The Gold Coast Bulletin has compiled a list of 10 residential developments that are confirmed or currently under construction that we think readers should have on their radars — the majority being delivered by trusted and well-regarded local developers.
