One Central

One Central

Design overview

Previously known as the East Frame, One Central will breathe new life into Christchurch’s central city.  The residential masterplan will create a range of desirable, connected neighbourhoods, full of energy and spirit. One Central will be a celebration of diversity and a showcase of urban regeneration.

With plans for up to 900 homes, accommodating over 2000 people, One Central will cater to a variety of lifestyles and life-stages. Our homes will have a strong connection to the city and offer open shared spaces for everyone to enjoy, and a community that balances the ability to live, work and play.

A place for everyone

One Central will be a vibrant, connected, urban community offering a variety of homes to attract a diverse mix of people and cultures. With residents living alongside city eateries, thriving retail outlets and open green spaces, this will be the new beating heart of inner city Christchurch.

With a range of distinctly different architectural styles and home designs incorporated across the development, our homes will suit a variety of lifestyle needs. The first 20 homes to be released will be located next to the Christchurch Club, and are due to be completed by late-2018.
