Buchan’s Design Lifts The Landing

6 May 2014

Buchan’s Design Lifts The Landing

Construction of The Landing will commence this month following the completion of designs for the new retail and mixed-use centre in Christchurch’s Wigram Skies community.

The Buchan Group was appointed by Ngai Tahu Property in June 2010 to design key components of The Landing’s retail and office buildings. The precinct will be home to retail, dining, commercial and community facilities in a high street-style environment.

Built around a town square, The Landing will cost around $20 million and will act as a social and economic drawcard to Wigram Skies’ master planned community, south-west of Christchurch.

Stage one of The Landing has a 8975m2 site area, including 2000m2 of retail and office space spread across three buildings and a 2600 m2 New World supermarket.

The Buchan Group in conjunction with Kamo Marsh Landscape Architects has designed The Landing’s two significant features: the public town square and “The Runway” – a high street featuring a continuous, 'folded' roof.

The Buchan Group Principal Anton Tritt said The Landing would be brought to life with a design that would encourage visitors to take time out, relax and appreciate their surroundings.

“The centrepiece of The Landing is the town square, and restaurants and cafés will spill out into this common area, creating a piazza-like environment,” he said.
