A 154-metre tall residential tower designed by Rothelowman architects has been proposed for a skinny site at Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast.

At just 12 metres wide, the 45-storey building featuring only 37 units is all set to become one of the world’s skinniest residential towers.

The unnamed $200-million residential tower project will offer 35 ‘skyhome’ units, a two-level sub-penthouse and a three-storey penthouse in addition to a 450sqm standalone beach house and residents’ wellness facility and spa.

The project is planned for a Wharf Road site immediately south of the $950m triple-tower ‘Jewel’ project by DBI Design and US-based Oppenheim Architecture+Design.

Golden Gate is developing the project and its director of development, David Whiteman says that the design of the new tower will be uniquely Gold Coast with subtropical influences. The slender size of the development puts it on par with New York’s One Madison and the Phoenix Tower in Melbourne.

A development application has been submitted to the Gold Coast City Council with construction expected to begin this year subject to approval.
