Bishopdale’s New Library Underway

A

huge win for the Bishopdale community and the members of the Fendalton/Waimairi Community Board who have successfully lobbied the Council for the funding and design of the new library and community centre was celebrated recently. In a sod turning ceremony and blessing held at the construction site in July, Fendalton/Waimairi Community Board members were in attendance with shovels in hand to mark the start of construction. After an an exhaustive site selection

process the Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board chose the former Bishopdale Crèche in the Bishopdale Mall for its accessibility, cost effectiveness and size. The 800 square metre single story building will include not only a library and large community hall, but also offers a meeting rooms and atrium, which will be available to community groups and available after hours. Bishopdale-based Stufkens + Chambers Architects designed the new centre and

construction is being carried out by Hawkins Construction South Island. “The old community centre was extremely popular and we know there are a number of community groups around Bishopdale that are excited for the new Library and Community Centre to open and will make great use of it,” says Val Cater, Fendalton–Waimairi Community Board Chair. Until the new centre is completed in mid 2017 a temporary library will continue to operate in Bishopdale Mall.

REAL ESTATE MARKET UPDATE

Providing Custom Framing of all Artworks

The demand for property in Christchurch remains very strong. In May the number of properties sold in Christchurch City was 717 up from 653 in the same period last year with the median sale price increasing to $455,000 from $422,000. While a lot of sellers like to wait until Spring to sell their property, Winter is still a great time to sell. With fewer properties on the market, buyers tend to be highly motivated generating good competition and great results for our vendors. Interest rates continue to be at an alltime low with some very good long term fixed rates well under 5%. We have our own in house mortgage broker, Kevin Burrowes, to help secure these for you. If you are contemplating a real estate decision, please contact one of our Holmwood team today.
