The Spot, an eight-storey tower built on the corner of Chelsea Avenue and Gold Coast Highway Broadbeach, is a unique array of oversized apartments and balconies, with a focus on offering a dog friendly apartment building with facilties such as rooftop dog run and play area and hydrobath station.

The design is inspired from the organic edges of the Gold Coast beaches and hinterland. The surrounding environment portrays lines of fluid curves, soft edges and organic patterns. Moveable screens to the east and west provide privacy and sunshading along with a sculptural array of ever changing patterns of ‘spots’ which give the building it's namesake. The north and south facade are open and transparent to maximise natural light and ventilation.
