West Edge Stage 1 Update

West Edge Stage 1 Update

We’re really pleased that the Block D final Council inspection passed on Saturday.  This means that all of the construction is complete on the West Edge Stage 1 site.

We are still waiting on a few more things, like landscaping sign off and issue of titles, but it won’t be long before the last owners of this stage are in their new homes.

Mingyang has done a great job, even taking the Saturday Council inspection bookings at the loss of some of his weekends. Thanks Ming, we appreciate your diligence.

Crown Lynn Yards, the second stage of our New Lynn project, had some great progress in March.

Resource consent and  the EPA have been granted (this is a big deal for us) and building consent lodgements have commenced. 

Civil and underground works have started – construction of underground services are underway and the first platforms for terraces almost complete. It is important that we get these works finished before the winter rain sets in.

It won’t be too long before construction is really visible on the site.

Exciting Growth in Rolleston

Exciting Growth in Rolleston

The Selwyn district continues to go from strength to strength with the recent announcement that an $85 million shopping centre will be built in Rolleston, with new eateries, cinema and a farmers market all set to further boost the rapidly growing town on Christchurch's doorstep. The district council expects 24,000 people to be in Rolleston – the district’s biggest town – by the year 2040. We are pleased to be contributing to that growth.

West Edge Stage 1 Update

The final 2 blocks in stage 1, C and D, are almost complete, despite the challenges of lockdown.  We are looking forward to seeing these residents settled into their new homes.

Depending on the block, there are some minor internal works to complete before landscaping and commercial cleaning can be finished.
For health and safety reasons, final inspections will be scheduled by invitation with settlement expected in the second quarter of 2021.

Avanda Group is proud to be the principal sponsor of Selwyn Sounds for its 5th anniversary on 10 April 2021.

2020 has been an unusual and difficult year.  Despite periods of lockdown, we have continued with our programme to build homes and prepare sections and are actually very pleased with the amount we have managed to achieve.  We are happy to provide this brief update on our current projects.

This year has been a very challenging year for everyone. We'd like to thank you for your continuing support to Avanda Group. We wish you all the best in 2021. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It is hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner. We would like to wish you and your family a very safe and happy Christmas. Great progress has been made this year!
