You may have noticed that pretty much all of our developments centre around city living. This is completely intentional as it provides many benefits when compared to rural living. Let’s take a quick look at some of the reasons why we believe that city living is better than rural living.
Location is King
We’ve all heard it before: location, location, location. This can mean different things for different people, but for us, it is all about being close to amenities that have the highest potential to increase value and capital gains. One of the best cities that we build in that demonstrates this is Christchurch. Take a look at the map below.
The above image highlights 18 Wilmer Street in the centre of Christchurch. Situated within the Four Avenues of the city, it is surrounded by local amenities as you can see.
Recently, Earth’s population surpassed 8 billion people, so the need for more housing will only continue to rise.
We believe that urban sprawl will continue to bleed further into unused territory, creating a greater distance from city centres to housing. This is why we support high-density buildings. Theoretically the closer you are to the hub of economic activity in an area, the more valuable your property will be.
City living also means a convenient lifestyle. When you are a walk or bike ride away from everything that you need, you don’t have to worry about long commutes into the city or sitting around in traffic. What’s even better is that it saves you money and is better for the environment! Talk about a win-win situation.
Christchurch is not the only city that we build in that has exciting potential for growth. We also build in Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington and also across the ditch in Brisbane. To check out our great developments click here.
