Property Development


Queen City Law has huge passion and substantial experience in property development. We focus on adding bottom line value for our clients at all times. Our philosophy is to concentrate on building long lasting partnerships.

Recent projects include: Acquisition of the Metro Centre, Resource Consent process for the project currently known as the Elliott Tower (Auckland CBD), and legal representation for many apartment developments and body corporates including Victopia.

We have often been able to play an extremely hands on role in terms of a lot of these projects.Our lawyers are often in team meetings with say the developer, the cost consultant, the architect, the builder, the project manager and finance. We are experienced at representing off shore interests. This experience has given us a much deeper understanding of property development work and places us in a rather unique position- it also enables us to add direct value to development projects with a mark of distinction. We also able to assist in terms of due diligence programmes, ascertaining finance requirements and implementing such programmes. Our lawyers are able to act as agents in accordance with recent legislative changes allowing lawyers to again provide such services and we are well placed to provide sound assistance in this regard although we are currently limiting our involvement to transactions over say NZ$5M.

We create partnerships with our clients, and grow long term relationships that grow strong. Click here to see a gallery of some of our recent construction projects.
