New owners in a luxury apartment block at Alexandra Headland have started moving in after the complex sold out to generate more than $70 million in sales.
The eight-storey Beach Life Alex was a hive of activity this week as its new residents moved in the complex which replaced the longstanding Club Beaches at 118-120 Alexandra Pde.
Phil Gray and his wife Lorraine were among the first after they forked out more than $2 million for the penthouse.
Mr Gray said it was a dream to now live in a destination they’d visited many times while on holidays.
“Two of our kids have left Sydney and moved to Brisbane, so this place is perfect for us,” Mr Gray said.
“We just love it, the Headland strip, the restaurants and cafes along Mooloolaba and the esplanade, the views out to Mudjimba Island, everything.
“It really appealed to us a lot.”
Mr Gray said the purchase was made off the plan about two years ago.
He said he had been itching to get in.
“We’ve spent the last few years in the motorhome or in rentals, but it’s not the same as being settled,” the former financier said.
“And since we moved in, we’ve found it so welcoming. Such a really good community feel.”
Mr Gray said it would be their final purchase of this magnitude.
“No, we’re done,” he said.
“The next stop for us will be into the old people’s home or the hospital.”
The agent who marketed Beach Life Alex, Town Group’s director Craig Morrison, said all 57 apartments were now sold.
Mr Morrison said the sales generated $70 million.
The project was developed by Scott Juniper’s Cube Developments and built by McNab Sunshine Coast.
