Industrial

Ngāi Tahu Property is one of the largest property developers in the South Island, with extensive cross-sector experience and a strong balance sheet.  

Over 20-plus years, Ngāi Tahu Property has successfully developed residential subdivisions, commercial properties and industrial business parks across Te Waipounamu-the South Island. We have expanded our footprint into Te Ika a Maui-the North Island, with a residential development in Auckland. For further information on our current ahumahi-industrial projects click a link below.

As an organisation we commit to and embrace Ngāi Tahu iwi values, taking an inter-generational approach to investment. We approach every development as long-term custodians, considering options to minimise overall environmental impacts using life-cycle analysis and other techniques as part of our sustainable development philosophy.

Our development names

Ahumahi means Industrial in Te Reo, reflecting our unique approach to property development.

As an iwi-owned company we are committed to working with mana whenua in every area where we operate. We are serious in our desire to support the use of Te Reo Māori throughout Aotearoa and to help reinstate indigenous names and narratives into the landscape. We always take time and effort to get the naming of our developments right. Importantly, Ngāi Tahu Property does not hold any copyright on our use of these kupu taonga and respects the significance and mana of all names to the mana whenua and to Māori nationally.

Past Developments

Acheron Drive 21 lots 21 industrial lots located off Blenheim Road, Christchurch. This development was completed in the late 1990s
Sockburn Business Park 23 lots Approximately eight hectares of land on Blenheim Road, east of the Sockburn roundabout. Catering for owner-occupier businesses wanting medium-sized buildings, this development was completed over three stages in the late 2000s
Wigram Business Park 52 lots This 25-hectare development, located on Hayton Road, Wigram, southwest Christchurch, provided 52 lots for firms expanding, relocating or re-establishing their businesses post-earthquakes. This development was completed in 2015.

Current Developments

Ngāi Tahu Property has bought three blocks of prime industrial land adjacent to the key south-western corridor of State Highway 1 leading into Ōtautahi-Christchurch.

Located in Hornby, Christchurch, and Rolleston, Selwyn, the Kairua and Tawhiri developments are well positioned for transit links including the State Highway network, Port of Lyttleton, Christchurch International Airport, the Southern Motorway link between Christchurch and Rolleston, and the KiwiRail network.  The sites – totalling about 80 hectares – are in prime locations  and have excellent access to the country’s road and rail backbone, and east-west transit links into the Ōtautahi-Christchurch urban area, Lyttleton Port, Christchurch International Airport and Te Tai Poutini-West Coast.

The development at 320 Shands Road, southwest Hornby, Christchurch, will have a total development area of 41 hectares. The current scheme plan provides for 40 Lots ranging between 1,750 m2 – 15,000m2. Titles are scheduled late 2021 (subject to change).

As the developer, Ngāi Tahu Property will provide wider choice to the market for tenure and development - both currently constrained in the Christchurch market. Our flexible approach to development will offer both land sales and design/build/lease options, catering for owner-occupiers and investors. Neither development has nominated construction partners. We are happy to work through the benefits of existing relationships that tenants, investors and/or business owners may already have.
