Heading North


Melbourne-based developer Little Projects is set to launch its innovative style here on the coast.


One of Australia’s largest private developers is setting its sights on the Gold Coast. And it’s just another sign, according to local experts, that the market here is still on the rise.


Little Projects, the development arm of Paul Little’s real estate empire will launch its first project in Broadbeach later this year. Aptly named Signature, it marks a new era of expansion for the successful developer.

With more than 2,000 apartments and $1.7bn in completed property, Little Projects, under the stewardship of entrepreneur and former Toll Holdings Chairman Paul Little, has left its mark on the real estate landscape over the last decade.



Little Projects is known for its signature developments that deliver quality and value in lifestyle-focussed inner city living.


They already have an impressive array of awards to their name, including most recently the 2017 Asia Pacific Property Awards – Best Residential Development NZ for Grace Victoria Quarter in Auckland, and Australia’s Best High-Rise Development for Central South Yarra in Melbourne.


Little Projects have bought this winning formula to their first Queensland development ensuring its design suits its beachside location and embraces the unique Gold Coast lifestyle. A partnership with local sales and marketing team KMSM led by experienced project marketer Jayde Pezet is key to this.

“Paul and his team are passionate about the Gold Coast and its potential,” says Pezet.


“It’s a real demonstration of confidence in the Gold Coast property market when someone as savvy as Paul Little sees the potential of Australia’s sixth largest city well into the future.”


Pezet has been working closely with the Little Projects team on their Gold Coast entry for more than a year.


He says their expertise and willingness to be part of the fabric of the city and embrace local flavour in the development have been instrumental in achieving a finished product that people will want to own.


And Pezet is in no doubt the Little Projects team are here to stay.


“There is no doubt Little Projects will make a big impact here. We’re looking forward to introducing their signature style to the market,,” he said.
