Convention Centre Precinct Update

November 15, 2012

For Immediate Release

The Christchurch Central Development Unit and Christchurch City Council have received 23 Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from parties seeking to play a part in the city’s new Convention Centre Precinct.

EOIs were sought from parties outlining proposed design, build, financing, maintenance and operation of the precinct, which is one of the first anchor projects in the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan to be taken to market.

The opportunity to submit an EOI closed last Friday. A technical review panel is currently reviewing the EOIs and submitters will be advised if they have made the short list in the week of November 26.

The intention is for the Convention Centre Precinct facilities to be open for business by March 2017.
