Development at Dakota Park, Christchurch
The development of the commercial property area in Christchurch
known as Dakota Park is forging ahead with the securing of two
further international companies.
"We're delighted to announce that construction of commercial
facilities for both Hewlett Packard and Landpower will begin in
Dakota Park," said Christchurch International Airport Limited
(CIAL) General Manager Property & Commercial, Blair Forgie.
"CIAL is focused on building business and tourism for
Christchurch, and the addition of these two companies in our
logistics and distribution precinct is great news for the city,"
said Blair Forgie. "Our vision is to attract more businesses to the
area in order to diversify the airport's portfolio and strengthen
the regional economy. At Dakota Park they have the ability to
custom-build facilities that suit their businesses perfectly.
They also have the advantages of being close to the airport, next
to State Highway 1, and only 20 minutes from the port of
Dakota Park consists of 80 hectares of land owned by CIAL.
The airport company has been developing the site infrastructure
over the last year, with wide roading networks designed for
large-scale truck movements, state-of-the-art telecommunications
fibre distribution technology and independent water and sewer
"This is an exciting development and a notable step in the
economic regeneration of the city," explained Blair Forgie.
There are still many sites available in Dakota Park, and the
CIAL property team is in negotiations with other companies to build
in this area.
