New townhouses sell fast in revitalised central city
Chester Courts has hit the right spot for discerning buyers wanting easy access to Christchurch’s vibrant CBD.

Fresh from building Christchurch’s vibrant Riverside Market, one of Consortium Construction’s latest projects – a new townhouse development in Chester Street – ticks all the boxes for stylish inner city living.
Each of the 10 three-bedroom homes in the new architecturally designed Chester Courts development will have two fully tiled bathrooms, a contemporary kitchen with quality fittings and an outdoor courtyard, along with either a double garage or a single garage with extra off street parking.
“Chester Courts is fairly unique when you compare it to other new residential projects in the central city,” says Brooke Whiting, General Manager of Consortium Construction.
“They’re architecturally designed, fairly generously sized for city living and bridge that gap between cheaper investment stock and the high end of the market. “Upfront we were confident that the product would attract a good level of interest but we did not expect to sell all of them off the plans at the rate we did.
Opes Real Estate sold out the development within just 12 weeks of going to market.”Demand is clearly strong for quality lifestyle options like this in the central city, which has been revitalised by substantial civic and commercial development over the past few years.
Being built to exacting standards, Chester Courts has hit the right spot for discerning buyers wanting easy access to Christchurch’s vibrant CBD.Adding to their appeal is that Chester Street is a very desirable location within the four avenues. Consortium Construction is proud to be leading this project.
“We’re delighted at how the market has responded – it’s a real vote of confidence for the city,” says Brooke.“Having done so much development in the city ourselves, we can’t help but be passionate and optimistic about the city and CBD living. Our buyers are local owner occupiers who share that same passion.”
Consortium Construction has managed the nearly 2100sqm site from the start, from demolition of a former squash court building and site excavation through to handing over the keys to their clients.“We’re able to control every aspect of the project so there are no lag times between one trade stop-ping and another starting.
“We’re very conscious of time and budget… Our timeframe for completion is the third quarter of this year.”Christchurch architects Gravity Architecture designed Chester Courts townhouses, with urban design and landscaping by OBDesign Landscape Architecture.
Since 2004, Consortium Construction has specialised in a full project management service providing design and build projects for a vast array of project types and has built a reputation for both professionalism and quality construction.
Locally owned and operated, Consortium Construction has built and project managed many of Christchurch’s leading commercial developments and has delivered hundreds of houses for developers and social housing providers.
Along with the Riverside Market, Consortium Construction has had a lead role in development of the SALT District on High Street, as well as new buildings on Oxford Terrace and in Cashel Mall.
“Given our track record and experience in the industry, we’re constantly approach by people who want to develop a site and need a construction partner from day one to see the process the whole way through.
“Concept and feasibility work, demolition, site clearance right through to handing over the keys at the end, we work with clients to deliver on time and to budget. “Property development, be it commercial or residential, is all about having the right construction partner from day one.”
