Stillwater Hope Island Residential and Marina Development


Stillwater Hope Island Residential and Marina Development


Ranbury was the Development Manager responsible for the planning, design, and construction of 110 luxury apartments, marina, resort-style pool, and common areas for residents. The waterfront development, marketed as Stillwater Hope Island, is adjacent to the Sanctuary Cove golf courses, and The Hope Island Resort shopping centre on the Gold Coast. The Stillwater development is for permanent residents only and was designed and marketed as a lifestyle option for self-funded retirees.

The complex consists of six individual four storey buildings comprising 12 x 4 bedroom, 34 x 3 bedroom, 44 x 2 bedroom with study, and 20 x 2 bedroom apartments. Four of the buildings have roof terraces. The apartment blocks are built over two separate car parks that include accommodation for 202 cars, 48 buggies and service rooms. Two of the 4 bedroom ground floor apartments have plunge pools. All of the apartments have access to extensive landscaped areas, a large resort-style swimming pool and an amenities building with a sauna, steam room and gym area. The apartments are of high quality and include air conditioning, electric oven, gas cook top, dishwasher and clothes dryer. As with all residential areas in Hope Island, Stillwater has 24/7 security provided by Hope Island Security Service and is a gated complex.

As Development Manager, Ranbury assisted the client secure finance and approvals, and then delivered the project within the agreed project feasibility.

Ranbury was involved from the due diligence and pre-purchase of the site and was Janfair’s appointed Development Manager for the entire development. Our role included managing the initial process to gain principal body corporate approval for the type of use, followed by development approval from the local authority for the proposed project. Ranbury then managed the project through to completion including management of the development feasibility, marketing and sales campaign, design and construction, and hand-over to owners. Ranbury’s role then continued as the initial Body Corporate Chair for the development.
