The Mantra Towers of Chevron Surfers Paradise (previously Towers of Chevron Renaissance) form a three–tower residential resort in Surfers Paradise, on the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia. The resort is part of the $400 million Chevron Renaissance development that also includes the Chevron Renaissance Shopping Centre; a retail, dining and entertainment complex located at the base of the towers.[1][2][3]

History[edit]

The Towers were constructed on the site of the old Chevron Hotel, which ceased trading in the mid-1980s and was demolished in 1987.[4] The site remained empty until it was purchased and redeveloped in the late 1990s by the Raptis Group.[4]

Construction of the Towers of Chevron Renaissance commenced in September 2001 and was completed in December 2004.[2][5] They were named Skyline, Skyline North and Skyline Central in honour of the Skyline Bar, which was opened in 1957 as part of the Chevron Hotel.[4][5]

The first Tower of the Chevron Renaissance project, Skyline, was completed in January 2003.[3][6] The second, Skyline North, was completed in May 2004.[7] The third Tower, Skyline Central, was completed in October 2004.[8]

In 2002 property management company S8 Ltd purchased the management rights to the first Tower of the Chevron Renaissance project, Skyline.[3][6]

In 2006, hotel group Accor took over management rights to all three towers from S8.[2]

In 2015, property management company Mantra Group purchased the management rights to Towers of Chevron Renaissance, and renamed them the Mantra Towers of Chevron Surfers Paradise.[9]

Key Features[edit]

The complex occupies a block which stretches from Gold Coast Highway in the east, west to Ferny Avenue; from the Circle on Cavill buildings to the south; half way towards Cavill Avenue; and north to Elkhorn Avenue.[10]

Skyline is 38 storeys high, Skyline North is 50 storeys and Skyline Central is 40 storeys high.[3]

The three towers include 711 apartments and wide range of guest facilities including a fifth floor swimming pool and garden, a number of indoor and outdoor lap pools, gymnasium facilities, a private movie theatre and club lounge.[9][10][11]

The 39th floor Penthouse set a new Gold Coast apartment price record when it sold for AUD$9.5 million in early 2018.[12]
