Construction on Chevron Island apartment project ramps up along with Home of the Arts redevelopment

Marquee Development Partners is nearing the halfway mark for construction of its Stanhill Chevron Island development, with 90 per cent of the 61 apartments already sold for more than $33 million.

Stanhill is the closest new apartment development to Chevron Island’s Green Bridge which, once complete in October 2019, will link the community to the $380 million Home of The Arts (HOTA).

HOTA, which features an outdoor amphitheatre with a full calendar of shows and will soon boast a new $60 million art gallery, has been a major drawcard for Stanhill purchasers, including Peter and Beatrice Zaremba.

The couple, who have lived on Tamborine Mountain for 25 years, say they are ready to embrace a more cosmopolitan lifestyle, with their new address on Chevron Island putting them within easy reach of ‘everything.’

“We are so excited about moving to Stanhill. We love the project so much that if we won the lotto we would buy apartments in the building for all of our children,” Mrs Zaremba said.

“We can already imagine taking a walk from our apartment across the new Green Bridge to HOTA to watch shows and visit the Farmer’s Markets, before heading back for lunch at one of the many restaurants on Thomas Drive.

“We fell in love with Chevron Island because although it is so close to Surfers Paradise, it has a quieter, village feel with a beautiful riverfront park and pockets of greenery, along with a few spots to launch a kayak or throw in a fishing line.

“It feels like the right place for us to downsize. With a tram station nearby, plenty of bike tracks and the planned new ferry service, it will be easy for us to get around and enjoy all the area has to offer.”

Mrs Zaremba said the location and design of the Stanhill Chevron Island apartments would allow the couple to continue to entertain family and friends.

“We have lived on acreage, so one thing we really wanted was space to bring the family together, and Stanhill offers that in the form of a huge rooftop recreation area, with absolutely breathtaking views of the river, HOTA and the city skyline,” she said.

“The rooftop has plenty of space for multiple groups to entertain in privacy, with use of a fully appointed private kitchen and dining room, along with a spa to soak in the views. There’s also a pool on the ground floor, which is fantastic because I swim often.

“We have bought a two bedroom apartment on level four which has a cleverly designed layout to maximise space, and because of the two storey height limit on the river, our views are protected.

“After renovating about 12 properties in our lifetime we are looking forward to finally having a brand new home with contemporary, top shelf fittings and finishes and all of the resort-style amenities we can enjoy, but won’t have to maintain.”

Stanhill comprises a mix of spacious two and three bedroom apartments, priced from $499,000 to $799,000.

Stanhill Chevron Island is Marquee Development Partners’ second Gold Coast project, following the success of its Peninsular Residences tower in Surfers Paradise, which is already sold-out and nearing completion.
Marquee Development Partners has also successfully delivered the multi award-winning luxury Haven Newstead apartment tower.
