Police believe a group of teenagers spread over two apartments at the View Avenue building at Surfers Paradise were all affected by drugs when the 19-year-old man fell from a balcony about 3am on Saturday.
A crime scene has been set up and police are interviewing everyone inside the building as they piece together what happened.
Queensland Ambulance Service was called to the apartment shortly after 3.15am where paramedics found the man dead at the scene.
Seven people were treated and four found to be under the influence of drugs were taken to Robina Hospital.
"Investigations are underway to determine the cause and what may have taken place in the lead-up," police said.
