With a curving crescent that follows the promontory of the marina at The Waterfront, Shell Cove, it’s little wonder Nautilus has garnered national recognition for its unique semi-circular design. The highly anticipated luxury apartments won the coveted 2022 UDIA National Award for Excellence in Design, after also being crowned the UDIA NSW State winner.

Offering sweeping views of the world-class Shellharbour marina and Pacific Ocean and across the Illawarra escarpment, the project features 116 beautifully appointed waterfront residences sited across two buildings. 

The buildings are centred around a communal space offering common facilities across two separate podium levels, with one level including lush mature landscaping, an elliptical shaped pool with pergolas and a second, private rooftop terrace featuring a gymnasium, yoga platform and undercover entertainment spaces. Works also include two levels of ground floor basement with parking.
