Photo: Mindi CookeA LEISURELY stroll along Burleigh Heads has set a Gold Coast family back $5.02 million with a luxury penthouse purchase.David Calvisi, of Synergy Property Partners, said the penthouse at North Residences wasn’t on the market but interest throughout its construction caused the developer to reconsider.“Along the way we had quite a lot of interested parties approach us,” he said.“People were walking along Burleigh, seeing the building and calling our architects, and even the town planner.”The family who bought the 472sq m penthouse owns a riverfront house on the Gold Coast and plans to use the penthouse at weekends. North Residences, at 296 The Esplanade, includes seven beachfront apartments in a residential-only building.Mr Calvisi said the design and high-end finishes were comparable to boutique apartment towers in Melbourne or Sydney.“We would look down on the street and see people standing there looking up and taking photos,” he said.

Biztech Software strikes long-term Paddy Power deal

All of this is possible through Arkle.”The product is integrated with 2DB and MRG screen systems and includes all SIS, TRP and Virtual data feed integrations. It is built on modern .NET 4.7 Framework Technologies and SQL Server so that trading isn’t disrupted even when a shop server is down.“A vital component of Arkle has always been that shop staff can still serve their customers and scan bets even during down time,” Toal continued. “It also includes a full mark sense, providing a faster, more efficient way to take bets with multiple selections. “Meanwhile, recent updates include an All in One Screen that provides a better visual aid of the horses and races on offer. These races will start showing early prices, live shows and results as soon as they are received, while prices are consistent between screens and tills.”last_img read more
