Ngāi Tahu Property

For generations the land has shaped the culture and identity of Ngāi Tahu. Our history and traditions are recorded in the names of places, mountains, rivers, lakes and oceans ensuring the footsteps of our ancestors remain forever upon the landscape.

The land, and our relationship with it, is one of the foundations on which we are building the future of Ngāi Tahu. Through its investments and developments Ngāi Tahu Property strives to honour that enduring relationship.

Excellence in sustainable land use, environmentally sensitive buildings and developments, inter-generational commitment and long-term vision help to define the Ngāi Tahu Property business ethos and offer the company a point of difference and competitive advantage.

Owning assets valued at more than $600m, Ngāi Tahu Property is a leading property development, property management and investment specialist. We also manage the tribe’s Right of First Refusal to purchase Crown property assets.

Our development portfolio includes three of Canterbury’s largest master-planned residential developments; Wigram Skies in south west Christchurch, Prestons in north east Christchurch and Te Whāriki in Lincoln. Current commercial developments include a new 3,800m2 state- of-the-art blood centre for New Zealand Blood Service, Wigram Business Park and The Landing, which is the town centre at Wigram Skies.

Our rural developments consist of 52,000 hectares of rural land in Canterbury and the West Coast of the South Island.

Since 1994, the development team has overseen a number of significant commercial projects such as Queenstown’s Post Office Precinct and Te Hononga – the Christchurch Civic Building, a highly successful public private partnership between Ngāi Tahu Property and the Christchurch City Council. On completion, these buildings were then transferred to the company’s investment arm for long- term ownership and asset management.

The investment portfolio holds a number of prime real estate assets with a significant suite of Crown and local authority- tenanted properties. Among these are court properties in Christchurch and Queenstown and Police buildings in Dunedin and Queenstown. In addition, Ngāi Tahu Property’s investment arm owns a number of other properties such as the high profile big-box retail centre, Tower Junction in Christchurch and smaller niche properties, many of which have been developed by Ngāi Tahu Property’s commercial development team. Our portfolio promises that Ngāi Tahu will retain a major and influential voice in the growth of the South Island and New Zealand as a whole.
