Plenary Conventions NZ working with architects Woods Bagot and Warren and Mahoney, have been selected by the New Zealand Government as the preferred development consortium for the Christchurch Convention Centre. Plenary Conventions NZ is a consortium made up of infrastructure specialist Plenary Group and two of New Zealand and Christchurch’s largest property investors, Carter Group and Ngai Tahu Property. The consortium will formally enter into a master planning and development phase where it will work with the Government on the detail of the precinct ahead of construction.

Plenary Group Executive Director, Mr Paul Crowe says the consortium was created to bring together the very best local knowledge and experience and to combine it with international design and delivery expertise. “Our team at Plenary is relishing the opportunity to work alongside our respective colleagues at Carter Group and Ngai Tahu Property who have and continue to be long term investors in the development of Christchurch.”

Occupying the area between Cathedral Square, Colombo Street, Armagh Street and the Avon River, the new Christchurch Convention Centre Precinct is one of the most critical and exciting anchor projects in the rebuild of the city. The partnership of Plenary, Carter Group and Ngai Tahu Property will deliver: a completely integrated conference precinct embedded in the daily life of Christchurch; investment in a mixed use precinct of commercial development in tourism, retail, office and residential; and an investment in a fully integrated hotel.

The consortium believes that the business tourism generated by the Christchurch Convention Centre precinct will provide an economic shot in the arm for the city. The Christchurch Convention Centre Precinct will provide a hub of business activity and entertainment, linked to the whole city via river walkways, public transport, pedestrian and bicycle networks.
