Silverstream is progressing from strength to strength. Already home to more than 1000 residents, the subdivision west of Kaiapoi has now started developing a further 275 sections on the east of the scenic subdivision.

On Thursday 10th September, Waimakariri mayor Dan Gordan, local MP Matt Doocey and Waimakariri District Council chief executive Jim Palmer, many affiliated councillors and our contractors joined the development team to open the “East Side” of Silverstream in a significant ribbon-cutting ceremony. The event, small but pleasing to observe Covid-19 restrictions, highlighted the importance of the development in meeting the economic and social needs of the wider Kaiapoi community.

Silverstream’s developers, Fred Rahme and Jack Lin, have consistently made decisions with a view toward building strong communities. A change to the road layout through the new stages of the development is helping achieve this by clearly joining the subdivision to Kaiapoi with a direct connection to the town centre. The new link road will link Silverstream Blvd to the end of Adderley Tce for a safe and fast way to walk, bike or drive to all the amenities and attractions of Kaiapoi. “The essence of the road opening and the further development happening is that it connects two vibrant communities that are coming together as one,” Fred says. “Silverstream and Kaiapoi will now meet and blend into one.”

The ceremony celebrated this vision while also acknowledging the hard work of the Waimakariri council and many other contributors in making it happen. Kaiapoi’s trajectory now seems assured as a positive force in the region’s continued success.

Completion of the Northern Corridor motorway later this year will provide another lift by enabling commuters to reach the Christchurch CBD in under 25 minutes. The additional lane over the Waimakariri bridge and a direct route into the city are expected to provide great advantages to those in Kaiapoi, as well as the greater Waimakariri District. Attractive interest rates are the icing on the cake for people deciding their building future.

Silverstream – well-known for its picturesque stream, beautiful homes, retail village, medical centre and socially minded neighbourhood – has already sold more than half of the sections available in Stage 5. Titles are due any day and a new showhome is expected to open in early 2021. Stage 6 will be released to the public before Christmas. Properties and house packages are priced and sized to suit, giving buyers complete flexibility. This is backed up by a worry-free process and the friendly support of an expert team so that building a new home is as exciting and enjoyable as it should be.

Many thanks to the dignitaries who celebrated with us, we are thrilled to play a part in growing and strengthening the Waimakariri district.
