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 the South Island. We have expanded our footprint into the North Island, with a development in Auckland. Our current projects are on Hoskyns Road, Rolleston and Shands Road, Hornby.

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.

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 Located on Hayton Road, Wigram, southwest Christchurch is a development of approximately 25 hectares. It provided 52 lots for firms which were expanding, relocating or re-establishing their businesses post-earthquakes. This development was completed in 2015

Current Developments

Ngāi Tahu Property has bought two 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, they 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 70 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.

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.
