Additional Information

First, the location, the Verve will be in the heart of Christchurch on Peterborough Street, which is about as good an area as you can find. Second, the height advantage - The Verve is being built to 11 floors, rather than the maximum 4-story for newly permitted developments, which allows it to offer unparalleled views over Christchurch. It is sure to become a local landmark.

The Verve will incorporate two adjacent buildings, linked by a raised and landscaped common area, and will include 2 levels of car parks. Very few apartment complexes are being built with car parks in Christchurch so this will make it a rarity in itself. Please note that to add a carpark to your purchase will be an extra $20,000 on top of the purchase price. The Precinct will include one, two and three bedroom apartments with expansive living areas.

The Verve will also be energy efficient, full of natural light and offer 360-degree views over central Christchurch.

SPECIAL OFFER - Has been extended for iFindProperty ONLY: 2 dual-key units have been offered to iFindProperty clients at a large discount to valuation for a very short time.

In the heart of the CBD, this property provides the lifestyle people want from a city centre location. Benefiting from its position just off Victoria Street, the Verve will attract tenants eager to exploit its proximity to Christchurch’s new shops, restaurants, and the short walk to work.

This location has seen significant private investment in the last 3 years. Newly constructed modern buildings now line Victoria Street and are already tenanted by high profile national and international firms.

Recognising the importance of Victoria Street as an iconic approach street into the city centre, Christchurch City Council also plans to spend $6 million landscaping and upgrading this location.
