How long will Wigram Skies take and how many people will live there?
Wigram Skies is proving to be the most popular subdivision in Christchurch – the development will be completed by the end of 2016 which is 10 years ahead of schedule. Over 1200 of the approximately 1400 sections have been built on in the development – upon completion the development will be home to approximately 4000 people.
Will there be a choice of section sizes?
Yes. Wigram Skies will be made up of three different residential densities, which means there will be a section size to suit all needs. View the Masterplan to see the proposed land uses and how the residential densities will be distributed.

Why couldn’t the Wigram Aerodrome be maintained?
Ngāi Tahu Property purchased Wigram in 1996 after the RNZAF ceased operations and the Government closed the Airbase. While the Christchurch City Council was initially interested in leasing the airfield so aviation related activities could continue, it soon became clear that this was uneconomic. Ngāi Tahu Property continued to operate the airfield however until February 2009.
