Four-level Office Block Planned for Christchurch CBD

11 November 2022

Ruamoko Solutions is proud to be involved with Portus Property and Ignite on the innovative structural design of this mass timber building. The development of this iconic site into a mixture of retail, hospitality, and offices will be great news for the Christchurch CBD. The timber structure of this building incorporating low-damage Tectonus seismic technology elements represents a step-change by the industry into a more sustainable future.

A four-storey $30 million office block, including a retail and hospitality section, will be built in central Christchurch. Portus Property is developing the site at 209-211 High St, which was where the former Excelsior Hotel was located before being destroyed in the earthquakes. The new building will include three upper office floors and a ground floor with retail and hospitality offerings.

Constructed in mass timber to reduce embodied carbon and with a focus on energy efficient services, 211 High will be “an important and responsible addition to the Christchurch CBD”, the Portus website stated.

“209-211 High Street has been a part of Christchurch history since the 1800s.”
