Nineteen First Avenue at Broadbeach full-floor apartments

Nineteen at Broadbeach to take advantage of lack of full-floor apartment stock on the Gold Coast.

Full-floor apartment projects have been at a premium since COVID-19 drove both locals and interstate buyers to the Gold Coast.

Full-floor apartment projects have been at a premium since COVID-19 drove both locals and interstate buyers to the Gold Coast, seeking the largest apartments on the market.

But for the last six months or so, there’s been little to no projects which are catering for the demand which, local agents report, is still very high.

Enter Nineteen, the new luxury address in a unique pocket on the border of Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise.

It will be the first project from local Gold Coaster Ayrton Mansi, who was set to develop an apartment project in Broadbeach before flipping the site to the Melbourne-based Little Projects who produced Signature Broadbeach.

Since then Mansi has completed a mix of residential developments, luxury villas, and DA land acquisitions, but this is his first true high-rise tower.

There’s no suggestion of any flip for Nineteen. Mansi took his time looking for the right opportunity for his first project, and in doing so, he locked down one of the best sites in the lower Surfers Paradise, northern Broadbeach area.

The site at 17-19 First Avenue, 250 metres to the beach, sits on an amalgamated 809 sqm block on the corner of First Avenue and Surf Parade, where the likes of Vue Apartments, Infinity and The Gallery Residences have been developed in recent years.

“The location is ideal – you’re close enough to enjoy all the amenities that Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise have to offer, without being in the centre of the hustle and bustle,” Mansi says.

“The position and aspect of the site inspired the design direction, resulting in a very special, one-of-a-kind, project that would be very hard to replicate on any other site in the surrounding areas.”


Andrew Erwin at NPA Projects, who are exclusively marketing the project, says the market needs a project like Nineteen.

“It’s all about getting the size right in these instances, which Nineteen definitely has. To be offering 280 sqm in every apartment, and not be commanding beachfront prices which could be 30 or 40 per cent higher for the same product, is a huge advantage.”

Due to the extensive work from home facilities, Erwin believes he’ll be fielding enquiry from those who are still able to work remotely.

“The project talks to the gig economy,” Erwin says.

“People can live, work and play in Broadbeach, and also do it within their own building. They’re only ever likely to share the space with a handful of other residents at any one time. It almost becomes a private office.
