Jim Raptis

Raptis Group

High-rise developer Jim Raptis has changed the Gold Coast skyline for more than 30 years.

The Raptis Group of Companies have built some of the Gold Coast’s most significant architectural  landmarks including the Towers of Chevron Renaissance in Surfers Paradise.

Mr Raptis, the chairman and founder of the Raptis Group, first entered property development in Sydney in 1967, and then moved to the Gold Coast in the mid-1970s.

His early residential buildings, which included the Aegean, Acapulco and Biarritz,  demonstrated creative architectural design and a successful approach to site selection, construction and marketing.


Mr Raptis helped to pioneer the development of integrated residential, resort, retail and commercial projects. The group 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 to the heart of the Surfers Paradise in the early - mid 80s.


During the 1990s and 2000s Mr Raptis developed a string of high rises, bringing the total number of Gold Coast tower projects that he had helped design, create and complete to more than 30.
