Fulton Hogan is currently working to develop a number of sites in and around the Christchurch region, primarily to develop the 6,000 sections required to estimated dwellings needed to re-house residents made homeless by the recent earthquake devastation.
The company has a history of land development in this area, with one recent project involving the completion of Broad Oaks, a major hillside residential development located on the Port Hills, 5kms south of Christchurch’s City Centre. This development, on the site of the former Broad Oaks Sanatorium, was the first South Island development to receive the ‘Award of Merit’ for design.
Currently, Fulton Hogan has two major developments underway– one at Lincoln, involving residential construction on nearly 92 ha of land, and one at Hallswell on 117 ha of land.
Fulton Hogan is the developer behind the 900-section Rosemerryn subdivision in Lincoln, 22 kilometres south of Christchurch. This site is also zoned for a 4000m2 commercial area and various residential/commercial stages will be completed across 2012 and 2013.
Fulton Hogan is also the developer of the Hallswell subdivisions Longhurst and Knights Stream Park. Spread across the two sites, this development will comprise a $250 million master-planned community with 1400 sections, reserves, a small shopping centre, and two schools. The construction timetable has been brought forward as a result of the recent earthquakes and Fulton Hogan, acting as principal contractor, will have the first homes completed and ready for occupancy by mid-2012.
