The $18 million sell-out of the first release of homes in GemLife’s flagship new over-50s lifestyle resort in Pimpama on the Gold Coast in less than a week has fast-tracked the launch of stage two to the market.

All 26 homes released in stage one of the $200 million GemLife Gold Coast were snapped up off-the-plan within two days of the community’s official launch, with the developer expediting the second stage of 88 homes to meet the significant demand.

Civil construction is already underway on GemLife Gold Coast, which will span a 46-hectare elevated parcel in the city’s fast growing northern corridor, with spectacular views stretching from North Stradbroke to Burleigh.

The community will feature an unprecedented level of resort-style amenities, including a sprawling 7000sqm three-level Country Club, topped with an infinity-edge pool, entertainment zone and bar.

Other amenities include a cinema, wine lounge, virtual golf, yoga studio, arts workshop, bowling alley, gym, off-leash dog run, hair salon, café, games room and lawn bowls – among many others.

GemLife Director and Chief Executive Officer, Adrian Puljich, said the sales response to stage one had been phenomenal.

“To sell out our first release within a matter of days of launch is a great achievement and testament to the high level of demand for this style of living on the Gold Coast,” he said.

“The majority of buyers have been from the Gold Coast or Brisbane and are looking to enjoy their next phase of life, with less time spent maintaining their home and more time spent enjoying their lifestyle.

“Many are in the younger end of the over-50s demographic and the fact GemLife Gold Coast caters to such a diverse range of interests and provides so many opportunities for social interaction is appealing, as are the high quality of the homes and the location.

“We already have buyers lining up to secure their place in stage two and are confident it will also sell quickly.”

The new release is located just a short walk from the Country Club, with eight home designs available, each featuring two bedrooms plus a multipurpose room and a spacious 192sqm to 211sqm of living space.

The homes feature an open-plan design that optimises indoor-outdoor living and designer kitchens, European appliances and a six-star energy rating. Prices start from $640,000.

“GemLife Gold Coast aims to match high quality with affordability for our over-50s,” said Mr Puljich.

“This new release is in a fantastic location within the community, close to the vibrant heart of the Country Club, tennis courts, a pickleball court, walking trails and an off-leash dog run.

“Our aim is to provide all our residents with opportunities close to their homes to enjoy fitness, wellness and relaxation, which are all highly valued by today’s active and healthy over-50s.”

Mr Puljich said GemLife was also finalising bespoke designs for a second release of homes in the stage one precinct, which would be developed on elevated split-level lots to capture spectacular views and breezes.

GemLife Gold Coast will ultimately comprise 365 homes, delivered in stages over more than three years.

It is being developed by Gold Coast-based group GemLife, one of Australia’s fastest growing over-50s lifestyle resort operators, with 10 communities across South-East Queensland, Northern New South Wales and Victoria, and more in the pipeline.

A new state-of-the-art Experience Centre has opened at GemLife Gold Coast, providing an immersive and interactive experience of the lifestyle on offer.
