With the onset of two substantial residential developments in the north and north-east of the city – Highfield Park and Prestons – I think as locals we can look forward to the exciting opportunities and the momentum this unprecedented growth will bring with it. It is the obvious space for the city to expand its borders and with the lifestyle Mecca that the east provides, prospective purchasers will need little further enticement. I may have to get used to sharing my mountain bike tracks and the open space that Bottle Lake Forest and the shores of Waimari Beach provide though!
Prestons is a dynamic new residential subdivision located in the north east of Christchurch, approximately 20 minutes drive from the city centre.
The development, designed to be a sustainable urban village, is 203-hectares in size and will become a residential precinct for over 2,500 houses and 8,000 residents.
One of only a few new developments on the northern side of Christchurch City, the Highfield area will progressively release 2,200 home sites. Our sites will be sold with a focus on complete land and building packages, tailored to your budget.

These are exciting times and it’s great to see growth virtually on our back door step!
