Ahumahi - Industrial

Prime industrial lots in Hornby & Rolleston, Christchurch.

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

Our Ahumahi-Industrial developments in Hornby and Rolleston (Ōtautahi - Christchurch) are in prime locations, with easy access to transport links and offer flexible development options. 

As the developer, Ngāi Tahu Property provides wider choice for tenure and development - both currently constrained in the Christchurch market. Our flexible approach to development offers both land sales and design/build/lease options, catering for owner-occupiers and investors. 

Our developments do not have nominated construction partners. We are happy to work through the benefits of existing relationships that tenants, investors or business owners may already have. Learn more about each of our developments below:

Our development names

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

As an iwi-owned company we are committed to working with mana whenua in every area 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.

Current Developments

Ngāi Tahu Property has 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, Mānia 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.
