One Central: Bedford Terraces and Apartments

28 January 2021

On the doorstep of Christchurch’s dynamic new city centre, Fletcher Living’s latest 6 Homestar rated One Central Bedford Apartments and Terraces will be a central feature in the regenerating heart of the city.

Located on the corner of Madras & Lichfield Streets, the Bedford development is beside Christchurch’s Innovation Precinct – a buzzing community of innovators, entrepreneurs and future focused tech businesses. The homes are directly connected to a unique network of green spaces, pedestrian laneways and courtyards, with everything you need in walking distance and public transport easily accessible.

The homes have been built to a standard higher than the building code with more insulation, thermal modelling, excellent acoustic performance, effective moisture control and efficient heating, lighting and appliances. With parking set to the side, the development was designed to encourage active transport and make cycling easy. The Apartments also meet the Lifemark 3 standard for safety and usability for people of all ages.
