It will have a total of 33 apartments and 82 bedrooms, including 17 two-bedroom units and 16 three-bedroom units.

It is earmarked for a 935 sqm site occupied by two wooden mid-20th century houses which would be cleared to make way for the tower.

A report to council said it would not "overwhelm" the area, referring to criticism of development.

"The slender nature of the proposal builds carefully upon the local legacy of Gold Coast

architectural typologies established since the 1950s," the report reads.

"The proposed development does not seek to overwhelm the surrounding context and is appropriate in its response and sits proportionally within the expected level of future development anticipated by the Gold Coast City Council for this locality."
