Summerset is the third largest retirement village operator and the second largest developer of villages in New Zealand, building 400 to 500 retirement units per annum.
Greenwood Roche advises Summerset Group on the acquisition of land for the development of retirement villages, together with other property and resource management aspects of the developments themselves, throughout New Zealand.
Hillend Station is a working farm in Cardrona Valley, near Wanaka, which is being developed as a high quality rural-residential subdivision.
Greenwood Roche advised the developer of Hillend Station on the initial purchase of the 2,665 hectare property and completed two complex subdivisions, which initially included a perpetually renewable lease of most of the land back to the owner of the farm.
This project involved advising on the most appropriate structure for the development, establishing an incorporated society for the residents’ association (including preparing and updating its rules), drafting and negotiating all subdivision documents (including easements, restrictive land covenants and encumbrances relating to the residents’ association), and advising on compliance with securities legalisation and regulation.
The government has, as one of its key priorities, the recovery and rebuild of Canterbury following the devastating earthquakes in 2010 and 2011.
Greenwood Roche advised the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority on anchor projects to assist with the recovery, including the health precinct, the south frame and the east frame.
Otakaro was established in April 2016 to take over some of the functions of the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority, and Greenwood Roche continues to advise on various rebuild projects. We have assisted Otakaro with the development and associated property matters relating to the north, south and east frames, Margaret Mahy playground, the CTV memorial site, Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre, the Farmers’ Market and Rauora Park.
