South Island's biggest bulk retail centre planned for Rolleston

Rolleston near Christchurch could become home to the South Island’s biggest bulk shopping centre if a plan by property developer the Carter Group gets the go-ahead.

To be called The Station, the development would have about 50 stores and eateries, including a large hardware barn and parking for almost 2000 cars.

The 18-hectare site is in the Rolleston industrial area near State Highway 1. It is part of the Christchurch-based Carter Group’s $500 million Iport business park.

Shovel-ready funded YMCA building takes shape in central Christchurch

Walls are going up on the big YMCA construction project in central Christchurch which was one of the winners from the Government’s shovel-ready scheme.

The YMCA was awarded $51 million by the Government's Infrastructure Industry Reference Group – a $25.5m grant and a $25.5m concessionary loan – to fund both construction of its new Rolleston Ave building and the $9m conversion of its former hostel into a hotel.

The new three-storey building, which is expected to cost about $42m, is due to be finished in spring 2023, and will replace the existing recreation, arts and educational facilities in an older building to be demolished next door.

Construction underway for significant senior housing development

The six-to-eight-storey development, which has been designed by Architectus, is one of our most ambitious to date. Main contractor CMP Construction, who will be delivering four of the apartment blocks, got works underway in April.

Construction and Innovation General Manager Patrick Dougherty says Highbury Triangle will breathe new life into an underutilised part of Avondale.

“Previously, just 45 older homes stood on the nearly one hectare site, which is located between Great North Road, Ash Street and Community Lane, just behind the Avondale town centre.
