As the Sydney Morning Herald Spike column said "How much more leopard print and collagen implants can Queensland take?"

Only a plastic surgeon would know…

It's official! One of the worst kept secrets has now been confirmed, cosmetic and glamour puss businesswoman, Ivana Trump, has teamed up with the Australian development firm Aquiplan to build a $150 million, luxury condominium project in Queensland's exclusive Airlie Beach.

The development, known as Ivana Great Barrier Reef, is one of a series of property projects across the globe Trump has taken an interest.

Aquiplan received development approval late last year to proceed with the 42-unit project facing Airlie Beach.

The group, headed by John Stavrou and Niko Aquilina, has brought together a world-class team of designers, including Ms Trump, to develop this luxury development.

"We are delighted to have Ms Trump as our co-creator," Stavrou said.

"She epitomises everything we are trying to achieve at Airlie Beach - style, grace and perfection,"

Trump is currently putting the final touches on another condominium complex known as Bentley Bay in Miami Florida and is looking forward to taking her property credentials to new heights.

"The most exciting thing about Ivana Great Barrier Reef is that it truly is a new direction in property development. This is taking luxury to a new level, with absolute attention to detail in every manner of speaking," Trump said.

"The Whitsundays is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful regions of the world. I can't wait to get down there and see our project take shape.

"I am so proud of what we have achieved and I know Australia will be entranced by what we have created.

"Ivana Great Barrier Reef will not only add a new design element to one of Australia's most sought after addresses, but set new benchmarks for luxury living."

Designed by the Crone Partners, the project will incorporate 42 ultra luxurious apartments with a top price of around $6 million - a record for Airlie Beach.

Each apartment in the waterfront complex will come complete with its own swimming pool, a minimum 250 square metres of living space and attention to detail, every step of the way.

Sales will be conducted by invitation only, with a significant proportion of the project expected to be snapped up by high net worth individuals from across the globe.

Aquiplan chief executive officer John Stavrou said, "This is a project of international significance".

"This isn't a product we intend to put to the investment market. It is a product which is designed for someone who wants exclusive living," Stavrou concluded.
