Sales date announced for upcoming Queenstown apartments

The first off-plan apartments at Te Pā Tāhuna, a master planned, residential development within a short walk from central Queenstown, will soon be on the market.

Sales of the homes on Gorge Road will launch on 9 April.

Ngāi Tahu Property General Manager Blair Forgie says the initial homes will form part of a wider, thriving community with incredible alpine views.

“Living here we believe will offer a good quality of life, with nearby amenities including the local primary school. The convenience of this location will allow for owners to have the ability to lock up and leave with minimal hassle,” Forgie says.

The first stage of Te Pā Tāhuna is an architecturally designed three-level, walk-up building, featuring both market and KiwiBuild apartments.

These apartments are expected to be built before the end of 2022.

The apartments for sale will include live-work units facing Gorge Road as well as one- and two-bedroom apartments.

A live-work apartment includes your own space facing Gorge Road, and a private one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment to the rear.

Floor sizes will range from 44 square metres to 110 square metres.

These apartments are currently in pre-construction stage and civil works are progressing well.

Forgie says the sales launch is an exciting step in progressing the development, which Ngāi Tahu Property hopes will help with the housing shortage in Queenstown.

When finished, the entire development will be comprised of more than 300 new homes, including 105 KiwiBuild homes, as well as associated amenity.
