The Star Gold Coast has introduced the first tower of its apartment-style accommodation at Broadbeach, The Star Residences.
Located in the upper floors of The Star Gold Coast Tower 1 – a $400 million development standing at 53 storeys – The Star Residences includes 422 contemporary one and two-bedroom apartments suitable for short-term stays, long-term rentals, and permanent residency.
The Star Gold Coast Chief Operating Officer, Jessica Mellor, said the opening marks a major milestone in the expansion of property.
“[The Star Residences Gold Coast] introduces an entirely new world of possibilities for leisure and corporate travellers looking to make the most of our coastal lifestyle,” Mellor said.
“Whether you’re a family looking for a longer-term holiday destination or travelling to the Gold Coast for business, our new serviced apartments provide the best of both worlds – the convenience of home amenities, plus a full suite of bars, restaurants and entertainment on your doorstep.”
Interest in the new offering is already strong, according to Mellor.
“We’ve already seen fantastic pick-up of the new apartment-style offering with our first short-term guests checking into their apartments today, and a strong pipeline of bookings,” she said.
“Equally exciting is the concept that we will welcome our first permanent residents to the Island who will live like they’re on holidays year-round.”
Local architects Cottee Parker designed the apartments to meet the needs of independent travellers, offering practical home comforts combined with the conveniences of a world-class resort. Each apartments offers a fully functioning kitchen, laundry facilities, high-quality Wi-Fi and living room in a neutral colour palette with modern furnishing.
A selection of the apartments also include a dedicated study for those planning to work during their stay.
Guests and residents will have access to The Star’s restaurants, bars, and leisure spaces, as well as the private recreation deck on Level 20, which features a resort-style pool, sunloungers, a spa, sauna, steam room and gym, as well as yoga and pilates studio.
As part of The Star Gold Coast’s $2 billion development, a second $400 million 63-storey tower featuring 457 one, two- and three-bedroom apartments is set to open in 2024.
