The revitalisation of our cities is not only changing the way they look, but also the way we live. Circle on Cavill, the latest development by Sunland Group, is a prime example of the type of mixed-use developments that are bringing the soul back to the city.

Sunland Group architects say the project was designed to re-create the heart of Surfers Paradise, by locating a 50m-diameter circular piazza between two high-rise apartment towers in the centre of the development. Tower one, on Cavill Avenue, comprises 49 levels, including 271 apartments. Tower two, which fronts Surfers Paradise Boulevard, has 365 extra-large apartments over 69 levels. The design also incorporates a retail podium.

"A key objective in the design was to provide a strong visual and pedestrian link from the Nerang River through to Surfers Paradise Boulevard," they say. "To support this connection to Circle on Cavill, we have re-designed and landscaped Appel Park on the riverfront."

The two towers are set well back to maximise the open space available to the public. A landscaped recreational space on top of the retail podium at Level 3 serves the 636 residential apartments.

"The form highlights urban architecture, with tinted glass walls, textured pre-cast panels, angular framing and awnings providing a lively facade," say the architects. "The central pedestrian streets are 20m wide to further enhance a sense of openness."

Sunland Group managing director Sahba Abedian says the creation of a vibrant centre for metropolitan living, community and retail activity underpins the company's commitment to the city's revitalisation.

"This development not only transforms the streetscape, but also defines the city in terms of its high-profile, interactive design."

Crucial to the development's integration with the city is the retail precinct, with its uptown shopping, restaurants and cafes, and the central piazza. The shade trees, water features and grassed areas within the piazza make it ideal for picnics, public gatherings, art exhibitions and other entertainment. A 50m² LED super screen enables shows and sporting events to be shown to the public.

Individual apartments at Circle on Cavill have been designed to maximise the extensive views of the ocean, river and city. Floor-to-ceiling glazing also ensures there is plenty of natural light.

The spacious interiors feature specially commissioned finishes in glass, stone and stainless steel. The high standard of specification extends to the choice of fixtures, fittings and appliances.

Circle on Cavill residents can also enjoy the common facilities, including the lobby, office and reception areas. In addition, there is a Residents' Club on Level 55, with its own balcony and barbecue facilities.

Other amenities include a heated lap pool and a large, separate lagoon pool and spa, with changing rooms at both locations. There is also a fully equipped gymnasium, private in-house cinema, recreation and exercise decks with private pools, a sauna and steam room.

"It's a true resort lifestyle on offer, with the added benefit of a lively, cosmopolitan city at your doorstep," says Abedian.
