Move up to a truly stellar address

Move up, without moving away. It’s the SkyRidge promise, a project the Gold Coast has been waiting almost a decade for.

Inspired by the exceptional development site located on a 342-hectare parcel that rises in a series of ridges overlooking the spectacular Gold Coast skyline with sweeping northern and southern coast views, the new community is unique in its prime position between the hinterland, city centre and coast.

In perspective, it will be of similar scale to Varsity Lakes and built on some of the last available land available to be developed within central Gold Coast.

“There is nowhere else you can purchase a quality block of land to build a home in a breathtaking address right here in the heart of the Gold Coast,” says Project Director Chris Alston.

“With unrivalled lifestyle options on offer, a premium address and spectacular views of the city, SkyRidge is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the discerning buyer.”

Over a projected 15-year period, the $1.5 billion project will deliver up to 3,500 dwellings, a high-quality shopping and dining precinct, and a proposed school anticipated to provide education from prep through to Year 12.

The entry to the estate will feature a brand-new retail centre for everyday shopping needs, complete with supermarkets, cafés, speciality retailers, restaurants, and childcare.

SkyRidge has recently announced the latest releases of lots in its Ascent Neighbourhood, on the back of sales worth over $70 million across 145 lots.

The Ascent Neighbourhood is the first to be released and is situated on the initial significant rise of the community, with many homes featuring either views of the emerging Gold Coast city skyline or on to the ecological corridor and parklands.

Home sites in the first stages will suit a diverse range of home styles and lifestyle desires, with the average lot size approximately 450sqm.

Further lots are planned to be released in coming months and a 37-home display village will begin construction early next year, opening in the first quarter of 2024.

“SkyRidge will offer a diversity of housing to suit all demographics and needs, whether it be an apartment in the village centre, through to a traditional lot in one of our lifestyle precincts or a large block at the top of the ridge,” Chris says.

A key feature of the development will be an expansive network of large open green spaces, parkland and recreation areas, environmental corridors and public art.

From small urban pocket parks to large-scale ecological preserved areas, SkyRidge’s extensive network of walking and hiking trails will connect with large parklands, offering residents a great sense of space and recreation uses.

“One of the design parameters, right from the beginning, was that no resident would have to walk more than five minutes to reach green infrastructure,” says Chris.

“Within a short distance from every home will be parkland or bushland, ensuring a place to seek solace or adventure.

“We will create over 75 hectares of open space within the estate.”

Meandering through the estate, a three-kilometre ecological corridor will preserve the natural environment as well as the movement of wildlife.

“SkyRidge is much more than a new neighbourhood, it will become the benchmark for future communities by harnessing the very best in urban design while remaining connected with nature,” says Chris.

“There will be expanses of lawns, barbeque facilities for families, a five-hundred-person amphitheatre for moonlight cinemas and also Christmas and school concerts, a place where the community can take centre stage.

“For fitness buffs, we’ll have a circa 200-step stair climb elevating over approximately 30 metres, which will also provide residents with spectacular views of the ecological corridor.”

As the next great neighbourhood for the Gold Coast, SkyRidge will be a major contributing factor to the sustainable future of the region by providing an inspired place to live, work and play.
