East Frame, Christchurch

The East Frame development will be a new residential neighbourhood located at the heart of Christchurch, built around a large park. The East Frame covers around 20 percent of the inner city core and is expected to house more than 2,000 residents. It will be enhanced by cafes, restaurants and outdoor entertainment areas.

The development will provide a number of housing choices across three distinct precincts (Avon, Latimer, Lichfield), creating a desirable, connected neighbourhood that will enhance the inner city residential character of Christchurch. East Frame will combine residential and retail, private and shared spaces and will ensure easy connection with surrounding commercial precincts and residential neighbourhoods.

Davis Ogilvie’s involvement includes assisting the Fletcher Living team throughout the consultation process with Council planners and urban designers, as well as obtaining the necessary resource consents from the Christchurch City Council and Environment Canterbury. We have been involved with the civil design of infrastructure including: on-site stormwater treatment; the integration of services with the architectural design; and have coordinated the strategic servicing of the wider East Frame superlots.
