The Raptis Group of Companies has been developing innovative, quality projects on the Gold Coast for more than 30 years. During this time, Raptis projects have won numerous state and national design and development awards.
A commitment to creating developments with strong, timeless architectural elements, pioneering design and a focus on lifestyle has seen the 'Raptis style' shape the Gold Coast skyline. It is a style that has been emulated around Australia.
Raptis is recognised for creating new trends in architectural design - from curved balconies, as first displayed on Mykonos, to elegant roof structures as seen on Platinum on the Beach and the streetscapes of the Towers of Chevron Renaissance complex.
Jim Raptis, Chairman and founder of the Raptis Group of Companies first entered property development in Sydney in 1967, and moved to the Gold Coast in the mid-70s.
Within a short time, the Raptis name established a reputation for quality and imaginative development - projects that not only had visual appeal, but also with an ambience that exuded warmth and welcome. Early landmark residential buildings including Aegean, Acapulco and Biarritz demonstrated creative architectural design and a successful approach to site selection, construction and marketing.
Raptis was, and still is, at the forefront of integrated residential, resort, retail and commercial development. The Group has created more mixed-use developments than any other company on the Gold Coast. Properties such as St. Tropez, Monte Carlo, Le Boulevard and The Forum added elegance and energy to the heart of the Surfers Paradise in the early - mid 80s.
In the last 10 years, Raptis' dedication to architectural style changed the ambience of Broadbeach, with the distinctive Phoenician Health and Spa Resort and its mix of accommodation and retail outlets attracting a new level of vibrancy and lifestyle choices.
The Group is confident about the future of South-East Queensland. It has flourished through the peaks and troughs of the market for more than 30 years and has exciting plans for the future.
