Special Housing Area Development given green light for eighty-eight medium density homes

A Special Housing Area (SHA) development in Arthurs Point has been given the green light by Queenstown Lakes District Council today (Friday 23 December) to build 88 medium density homes and apartments aimed at first home buyers and families.


The development is the brain-child of long-time local miners and contractors, The March Family, in conjunction with Shane Fairmaid.

Bullendale, which takes its name from the old mining settlement in Skippers Canyon nearby, is located on Arthurs Point Road next to Shotover Lodge.

Stage one of Bullendale, which spans a four hectare site, comprises 14 semi-detached townhouses ranging from 105 -165 square metres with a mixture of two and three bedroom configurations.

The first stage was launched to the market this week with a deadline sale date of 14 February 2017. The full development includes 88 homes and apartments and also incorporates a central public greenway within Stage 1, all designed by Common Ground Urban Designers.

The greenway links to a new walkway and cycleway adjacent to Arthurs Point Road which will eventually link to the greater Arthurs Point community.

Developer Shane Fairmaid said “the homes are targeted as attainable for locals at a price we hope is attractive to first home buyers and young families.”

“In later stages there’s a mix of homes and apartments which may well appeal to both investors and families as holiday homes close to Queenstown and the ski fields, but we feel there will be strong desire from locals initially,” said Shane.

“We’re aware there is strong demand at the moment for homes of this nature and we’re confident people will appreciate the high-quality design look and feel that we’ve crafted within these homes,” he added.

“Work on site has commenced and we expect the first 14 Stage 1 homes to be completed by the end of 2017.”

Designed by Christchurch-based Foley Group Architecture, the homes span two storeys each with different offerings and configurations. Homes boast open plan kitchen, dining and living areas on the upper level opening onto north facing sunny patios and private gardens.

Bullendale is well located less than fifteen minutes from Queenstown and only a one minute drive from the Coronet Peak ski field road and ten minutes from Arrrowtown.

Stage One is being marketed by deadline sale. No homes will be sold prior and all offers will be presented to the developers on the afternoon of February 14 2017.
