Taking shape


Work is advancing on Invercargill’s inner-city development, which is set to be open by the end of next year.

The plans include retail shops, a dining precinct, offices and covered car parking with 675 parking spaces.

It involves the redevelopment of the block bordered by Dee, Esk, Kelvin and Tay Sts, with the exception of the Kelvin Hotel and Reading Cinemas.

It is estimated to cost $165 million and is a joint venture between Invercargill City Holdings Ltd and O’Donnell CBD Ltd.
