In mid-2015 a consortium led by Sir Bob Parker proudly announced it would build a $70 million-plus upmarket apartment complex overlooking Christchurch’s Cranmer Square.
Progress has since stopped and started and designs have been redrawn. Parker and other investors have bowed out of the project, and co-owner Jianping Wang’s company, Huadu International, has upped his stake.
Six years later the land remains bare, but groundworks are about to start again.
Huadu, now the sole owner of the project, says residents will be in their new homes by late next year.
