Leading Queensland property developer MAYD Group has lodged a development application for its North Kirra property project, a $350 million luxury hotel and residential masterplan development that will transform its prime beachfront site overlooking North Kirra Beach on the Gold Coast.

The amalgamation of eight prime sites fronting Pacific Parade, Golden Four Drive and Musgrave Street at North Kirra on the Gold Coast has given MAYD Group a rare opportunity to create a five-star hotel and residential masterplan of high distinction.

Expanding over 4742sqm, the prominent site at the southern end of the Gold Coast will encompass the first true five-star hotel building and a separate luxurious 10-level residential apartment building with 60 premium private residences, including two penthouses and five unique double storey beach houses, on the beachfront with unobstructed views of North Kirra Beach.

The project site is perfectly positioned at the gateway to the famous Kirra Beach, Coolangatta and Tweed Heads, offering a prime location for MAYD Group’s luxury 160-key hotel and residential masterplan development designed by multidisciplinary architecture design firm MAS Studio.

MAYD Group being a builder developer under MAYD Construct has assembled a strong design team with award-winning interior design studio Mim Design appointed to bring the five-star luxury interior treatments throughout the hotel and residential buildings.

The five-star private apartment residences at 2-6 Pacific Parade comprise of a range of two, three and four-bedroom residences, many with multipurpose rooms and access to resort-style amenities including a private pool area with sunken lounge and wet edge, a relaxation zone with sauna, shower and spa, yoga lawn, bar and barbecue as well as a lounge and cinema, all exclusive to the building’s residents.

Designed for the high-end owner-occupier, these premium residential apartments will also have access to the hotel’s five-star facilities including a port cochere, valet, room and laundry services as well as the hotel pool, lounges and restaurant. “We were fortunate to have been able to acquire eight adjoining sites to create one large beachfront site for our signature masterplan at North Kirra,” MAYD Group Founder and Director Todd Mould said.

“The opportunity to develop such a large beachfront site in North Kirra is a rare one that required a development design of architectural excellence and we are very pleased with the plans that we have created in collaboration with award-winning MAS Studio. We have been working with Gold Coast City Council on lodging the development application to deliver a landmark building of high distinction for such a prominent site, keeping the local environment and community front of mind.

“The Gold Coast is a world-renowned tourism and lifestyle destination and spots like Kirra are among the most popular with locals and visitors. Given the site is just 1km from the Gold Coast Airport that is being expanded for extra capacity to attract new carriers and new international and domestic flight connections, we recognised the need for a five-star hotel, as well as private apartment residences, to meet demand from global travellers and people who work remotely.

“With 90 metres of beach frontage, holidaymakers and residents will enjoy sweeping beach and ocean views from their hotels and apartments, enjoying easy access to the white sands of North Kirra Beach, plus it’s only a short stroll to Kirra where there are restaurants, cafes and boutique stores.”

MAS Studio director and lead architect Nick Symonds said inspiration for the masterplan design of the North Kirra project responded to the large site’s prominent position at the gateway to Kirra. “From the outset of our design process, we have been aware of the importance of this highly visible site and the obligation to create a statement entrance to Kirra, while at the same time blending in with the surrounding built forms.

“The design is strongly influenced by local context, reflecting the unique beauty of North Kirra Beach and relaxed beachside lifestyle, elevating it with luxury dwellings for those who share the passion of this unique lifestyle and location. Abundant greenery on the podium will cool the street where a row of beach houses, complete with their own private green courtyards, will provide a residential scaled address to the street. The building designs feature deep usable balconies, sunhoods, screens, and an abundance of greenery to compliment South East Queensland’s sub-tropical climate and provide privacy, while expansive windows capture breathtaking views, drawing in the natural light and air deep into apartments.”

MAYD Group is known for developing some of the most exclusive property projects in South East Queensland’s most sought-after postcodes. They are currently in negotiations with a global five-star hotel operator to deliver the luxury beachfront resort, which will be a major bonus for tourism in the southern Gold Coast region.

Kirra is one of the Gold Coast’s most desirable places to live; a beautiful beachside neighbourhood boasting one of the world’s best surf breaks that attracts surfers and visitors from all over the globe. World-famous waves and pristine beaches make Kirra of Australia’s most popular lifestyle destinations, particularly with people from the southern states holidaying or relocating to Queensland. The North Kirra property project has been inspired by Kirra and the site’s outstanding qualities; the size and location, presenting apartment buyers with a unique and limited opportunity to own a prestige apartment overlooking the beach.

The North Kirra luxury apartment development, to be delivered by Mayd Group, will consist of 60 luxury apartments including two penthouses across 10 levels with access to five-star hotel resort facilities at the beachfront location of 2-6 Pacific Parade in North Kirra, one of Gold Coast’s most desirable beachfront strips.
