New Zealand: Prime minister Bill English has unveiled the foundation stone for the Sudima Christchurch Victoria development.

The NZ$40 million aparthotel, office and retail development - the first new-build mixed-use project since the Christchurch rebuild started - has seen construction work start.

The 2,336 square metre development will include office space, an 86-unit aparthotel and 700 square metres of retail comprising restaurants, a day spa, and café.

It is being built on the corner of Salisbury and Montreal Streets and signals a major investment in Christchurch's commercial future and tourist infrastructure. The development is scheduled to be completed in November 2018.

Kilmour Properties development director Neill Barr said: "The site is unique being a mixed-use investment with commercial, retail, entertainment and a residential style hotel. The high profile location will consolidate the fast developing Victoria quarter and is a vote of confidence in the redevelopment of Christchurch."

"The development of a new five-star hotel shows the growth of the tourism sector in the Canterbury region and demand for hotel accommodation," said Sudima Hotels & Resorts CEO Sudesh Jhunjhnuwala. "This is a flagship project for us in the Canterbury area. The hotel offers self-serviced apartments to cater for both long and short term guests."
