As the property market gears up for spring, Ngāi Tahu Property continues to produce quality sections throughout Canterbury.

Ngāi Tahu Property is currently well underway with three of the most significant residential developments in Christchurch and Lincoln. Sections across Wigram Skies, Prestons and Te Whāriki are all in high demand. This can be attributed not only to the knowledgeable and approachable sales managers located at their onsite sales offices, but also to the superior product being delivered by Ngāi Tahu Property – a company which has over 16 years’ experience in property development. The company strives to create welcoming, safe, master-planned communities with real character in rapidly expanding areas throughout Canterbury.

All sections across Wigram Skies, Prestons and Te Whāriki are sold fully-fenced with fibre optics to the boundary and come with a free geotechnical report for added peace of mind. Care is taken in each development to create an identity and sense of place using landscape features and a combination of native and exotic plantings which provide shade, encourage native birdlife into the neighbourhoods and soften the look of hard surfaces.

Recreation and reserve areas are carefully incorporated into each development with consideration for the area. The history of the Wigram Aerodrome is delicately woven throughout Wigram Skies in the form of neighbourhood and street names, reserves and memorial sites. Ngāi Tahu artwork at the entrances off Awatea Road and Corsair Drive along with pergolas and neighbourhood seating areas add further interest, while the original alignment of the runway has been kept as the main boulevard. Aptly named The Runway, this will be accessible from Awatea Road by the end of the year.

At Te Whāriki, a walkway and cycle path is planned to run the length of the development, in time, linking to both Lincoln University and the established township. This will encourage pedestrian and cycle access and reduce vehicular dependence. Already plantings have matured, creating a welcoming outdoor space for our first residents. Landscape plans for seating areas and information panels are also well underway.

A similar network of walkways are planned at Prestons, with a linear park which will run close to the full 3.4 km length of the development, from Lower Styx Road to Mairehau Road. Numerous neighbourhood parks and reserves are also planned, as is an upgrade of the existing Marshland Domain.

Titled sections, ready for building now are currently available at Te Whāriki and our second neighbourhood is due for release before Christmas. At Prestons a number of sites still remain in Korowai neighbourhood, which will be titled by the end of the year. New sections have just been released in Harakeke neighbourhood and a select few still remain with golf course outlooks.

At Wigram Skies we are currently taking enquiries for the next release of sections, also due by Christmas. Both Te Whāriki and Wigram Skies currently have Show Home Villages operating at weekends; and Prestons is due to open theirs in late 2013 or early 2014.
