Take part in shaping the Central City, the vibrant heart of 21st Century Christchurch. New Zealand's oldest city is now its newest; an international city of opportunity.
We're embracing fresh ideas and big thinking to define the Central City as an urban centre of creativity, innovation and bold, ambitious development.
With an investment of $40 billion in the rebuild and an aspiration to attract thousands of new residents over ten years, this is a primed canvas for inspired neighbourhoods and a platform for prosperity.
We're here to support developers build better than before. Let's work together to make the Central City a dynamic place to live, work and play.
