Project overview

Located just outside of the Four Avenues, these stunning townhouses are just a stones throw from the Central City. It is with no doubt that finding new homes at an affordable price point is only going to get increasingly harder as Christchurch City’s population grows.

The open plan nature of the kitchen, living and dining provides everything you need for comfortable living. Our extremely functional kitchen will impress, plus there is a separate laundry with storage space under the stairs. Upstairs are 2 full size bedroom(s), which include large built-in wardrobes. Also upstairs is a full size bathroom. Outside is your own low maintenance, private courtyard with ample space for a barbecue, table and chairs. The outdoor area also includes a storage shed along with an outdoor power supply.

Christchurch Overview

Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand and the heart of the Canterbury Region. The Christchurch urban area lies on the South Island's east coast, just north of Banks Peninsula. It is home to 404,500 residents, making it New Zealand's third-most populous city behind Auckland and Wellington.

The city suffered a series of earthquakes between September 2010 and January 2012, with the most destructive of them occurring at 12.51 p.m. on Tuesday, 22 February 2011, in which 185 people were killed and thousands of buildings across the city collapsed or suffered severe damage. By late 2013, 1,500 buildings in the city had been demolished, leading to an ongoing recovery and rebuilding project.

The city experienced rapid growth following the earthquakes. A Christchurch Central Recovery Plan guides rebuilding in the central city. There has been massive growth in the residential sector, with around 50,000 new houses expected to be constructed in the Greater Christchurch area by 2028 as outlined in the Land Use Recovery Plan (LURP). The rebuild of Christchurch and population growth has created significant investment opportunities for investors. Read more
