Our (long) track record + awards.
With 30+ years behind us, there are simply too many projects to list. When walking around Wellington city, look up. Whatever you see there is a good chance we've developed it, managed it or sold it. And that's not even taking into account our residential projects. Below is a taster of what we've been up to lately, plus some of our greatest hits from the past.
We've also included some honourable mentions from our trophy cabinet, but our biggest wins are creating high quality communities, both residential and commercial: that's a track record that really counts.
