Third and final stage of Wynyard Quarter innovation precinct underway

Over many years of planning and development, the vision to transform Wynyard Quarter into a thriving neighbourhood that supports cutting-edge innovation and commercial activity is well underway.
To achieve the goal of a Smart-Working waterfront, Eke Panuku has partnered with Precinct Properties to develop the infrastructure for a 48,000sqm innovation precinct.

“Partnering with Precinct has been essential in achieving the vision of welcoming innovative and exciting commercial tenants to the waterfront. The success of Precinct’s work in Wynyard Quarter speaks for itself, and we all look forward to welcoming the future tenants of these buildings to Wynyard Quarter in the coming years,” says Fiona Knox, Eke Panuku Priority Location Director for the waterfront.

Williams Corp to build six-storey apartment blocks and townhouses in east frame

The Crown will sell land to property developer Williams Corporation for 102 new homes, some in apartment blocks up to six storeys high.

The land is a half-hectare block on Manchester St between Worcester and Hereford streets in central Christchurch.

It is part of the east frame housing development, an anchor project in the city’s rebuild.

To date, only Fletcher Living has built in the east frame after signing a deal with the Crown in 2015.

More homes for the Bay of Plenty on the way

Around 230 new homes are planned for the Bay of Plenty, with Housing Minister Dr Megan Woods announcing five strategic land purchases in Tauranga, Rotorua and Katikati.

“This is great news for people and whānau in need of housing in this fast growing   region, and what’s even better is that the homes will be built within the next three to four years,” Megan Woods said.

“Now that Kāinga Ora has bought these parcels of land for public and affordable housing, it’s looking at the specific types of houses and apartments that will be built  to help meet strong demand for homes for those most in need.
