Dawn breaks on $200 million Vantage

THE highly anticipated next instalment of Vantage Gold Coast has launched to the market offering the most spacious apartments yet within the $200 million masterplanned parkland community at Benowa.

Existing Vantage residents are among the early bird buyers who have secured at least six of the 113 two and three-bedroom apartments in the east-facing Dawn building, which was released at the weekend.

Many of the apartments in the 15-level Dawn will capture spectacular views east across the neighbouring Royal Pines Resort to the Gold Coast skyline beyond.

Other apartments in the development have views over the Vantage parkland setting, the Royal Pines golf course and the hinterland.

Developer Rayjon brought forward the release following the sellout of the initial three buildings – Dusk, Eve and Scape – and the 100 per cent settlement of sales in Dusk and Eve, which comprised the first stage of the development.

Knight Frank Queensland head of project marketing Chris Litfin said several existing Vantage residents had decided to purchase in Dawn to secure the larger apartment format.

“They’ve dipped their toe in the water at Vantage and decided they love it but would like a larger apartment now that they have been made available in Dawn,” Mr Litfin said.

“The other early buyers in Dawn are those who missed out on the three previous releases and have keenly awaited this next stage of Vantage.”

Dawn’s expansive two-bedroom apartments will range in size from 119sqm to 145sqm while the three-bedroom residences will span between 183sqm and 221sqm.

Each apartment will have premium finishes with large format tiled flooring in the living area, European appliances, ducted air conditioning and two car parking spaces. Three-bedroom apartments will be offered with timber flooring.

Dawn residents will also have exclusive access to a residents’ lounge on Level 2, and many will have their own storage area in the basement.

Apartments in Dawn are priced from $$495,000 for two-bedroom at 130sqm and $945,000 for three-bedroom at 183sqm.

Mr Litfin said Rayjon had decided to offer the larger format residences in the interests of providing a diversity of apartment styles at Vantage.

He said as with previous stages of Vantage, the dominant buyer profile was downsizing owner-occupiers from across the Gold Coast.

“They are attracted to Vantage’s spacious and thoughtfully designed apartments, the superb array of leisure facilities already in place and the convenient, central location at Benowa,” he said.

Vantage is set amid a 2-hectare lush parkland oasis featuring a swimming pool, gym, barbecue decks, resident lounge and intimate break-out areas.

When complete, more than 70 per cent of Vantage’s Ross Street site will be dedicated to open space.

Mr Litfin said Vantage’s ongoing sales success reflected recent Urbis research revealing the rise of coastal fringe suburbs such as Benowa as apartment hotspots on the Gold Coast.

“These are areas that offer luxury apartment living within easy reach of the beach but at a more affordable price point,” he said.

“We’ve experienced even more market traction since the completion of the neighbouring shopping centre, which includes a Coles supermarket, restaurants, cafes, specialty shops and services.

“With so much convenience at the doorstep, Vantage offers true urban living without the need for a car, even though there is generous provision for car parking for residents.”

Vantage is adjacent to the picturesque RACV Royal Pines Resort and Benowa Village shopping centre.
