Diversified developer Pellicano has lodged plans with council for the latest addition to its growing 2,000 apartment build-to-rent pipeline – a $225 million precinct in Robina set to include 418 residences across four buildings of 9-10 levels.
Following in the footsteps of Quest Robina and Lucia House, which was finished in 2020 and still retained by the group, Pellicano has submitted plans for the resort-style Paloma House – with close to 8,000sqm of resident amenities including a wellness centre, gym, steam room, sauna, cinema, residents’ lounge and work from home spaces.
The ground-floor plane has been designed as a one-of-a-kind tropical landscape that brings together a pool, poolside pavilion, private lounges, alfresco kitchen, dining areas, a tennis court, yoga lawn, garden lounge, and bocce court.
When complete, Paloma House will be managed by Pellicano Living – the developer’s residential platform – continuing its track record of thoughtfully designed, well-located residences with leading services and amenities. Pellicano Living currently manages 600 apartments across 10 locations, providing the group with valuable data to help form its design decisions on future projects.
In addition, Pellicano has a further 410 build-to-rent apartments under construction, which will be progressively completed over the next 15 months, in Woolloongabba, Fortitude Valley and Kangaroo Point in Brisbane, and Geelong in Victoria
In-line with the projects under the Pellicano Living banner, the Rothelowman-designed Paloma House has been designed to capture the idea of resort living, with its leading amenities, tropical design and ground-floor amenities, says Pellicano managing director Nando Pellicano.
“ As with the other projects in our growing build-to-rent pipeline, we’ve focused primarily on delivering high-quality amenities to our future residents – Paloma House will deliver close to 8,000sqm of communal spaces, that will benefit the whole precinct.
“ Build-to-rent will continue to be a key area of focus for Pellicano moving forward – we will continue to seek out well-located sites across both Victoria and Queensland, where we can deliver high-quality residences to growing populations,” he said.
The lifestyle amenity, design and architectural expression of Paloma House has incorporated Rothelowman’s key learnings from its significant pipeline of build-to-rent projects, says Rothelowman Associate Principal Lawson Royes.
” With an expanding portfolio of build-to-rent projects across Australia, Rothelowman deeply understands the increasing importance of this typology to better serve a community seeking choice and a sense of connectedness. Paloma House will be an exemplary project in the development of build-to-rent on the Gold Coast, particularly during the ongoing housing affordability crisis currently being felt across South East Queensland.
” Paloma House has been designed to seamlessly and sensitively integrate into the established Robina community and contribute positively to the evolution of its town centre, fostering a strong sense of community within a village atmosphere.
” We have embraced a strong agenda of liveability by incorporating humanising design strategies that harness the local natural environment and promote sustainability. Rich, dense vegetation enhances the subtropical public realm experience, while resort-style living inspires well-being and an active lifestyle,” he said.
Paloma House will feature a mix of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom residences across its four towers.
