A unique development, Halswell Commons is an exemplar of modern living, designed to be a contemporary interpretation of the old village community.
Halswell Commons is connected. Just 6km from Christchurch’s CBD, connect with the best of the city anytime. Even closer to home, within an easy walking or cycling distance, you’ll find an abundance of amenities, schools and leisure facilities such as the Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub to take care of your everyday needs.
Halswell Commons is an urban space for communities to form in and around, made up of neighbourly housing, bountiful green spaces, play areas for kids, and all the mod cons you’d expect in today’s best subdivision developments.
Although many of these elements can be found in isolation elsewhere, Halswell Commons’ modern urban design brings all of these and more together in one place, to create something much greater, and very unique.
This development puts into practice many of the values and principles of the most modern urban design, such as:
Combined, these add up to a high quality of life in a place that enriches community spirit and delivers a lifestyle choice unlike any other in Christchurch.
Perimeter walkways onto reserves provide people with a front door to a shared green space, with a network of off-road pathways for pedestrians and cyclists, and parking in lanes at the rear of properties.
A Montessori pre-school is located in the heart of the Halswell Commons community with an outlook onto the communal green space of the restored Spreydon Homestead.
The new Halswell Commons development sits on 19 hectares of Spreydon Lodge land and is an exemplary housing project under the Land Use Recovery Plan.
The concept behind this venture comes from internationally renowned urban designer, James Lundy, with all green areas designed by award-winning landscape architect, Matt Lester from Earthworks and Rough & Milne.
