    • The Village Palms’ land now exceeds the National Building Standard for seismic safety 
    • The architectural design was created by Mark Barron of award-winning and NZIA registered Jerram Tocker Barron Architects
    • Construction was completed by Christchurch-based commercial and residential builders Jones and Wyatt Construction 


    The Village Palms’ development includes:

    • Architecturally stunning buildings, with access and comfort in mind
    • Private garden courtyards and views of beautifully landscaped grounds
    • A two story building with a mix of care wings and ground-floor serviced apartments
