Proposed retirement village coming to Northwood

Ryman's proposed retirement village on Main North Road in Northwood, Christchurch will be located just across the road from the Northwood Supa Centre. The Supa Centre offers an array of amenities including a supermarket, pharmacy, café and restaurant, all within easy walking distance. The village will also be situated across from the Northwood residential development.

Main North Road is an arterial route that leads into Christchurch city centre, passing Northlands Shopping Centre and the popular suburb of Merivale along the way.

The proposed village will provide retirement living and care options to retirees in the fast-growing northern suburbs. The new Northwood village will provide apartments and townhouses, serviced apartments, as well as resthome, hospital, and specialist dementia care – all within the same village. As a resident’s health needs change, they can remain living in the area and the village that they know and love.

Residents will enjoy amenities such as an all-weather bowling green, heated indoor swimming pool, café, hair and beauty salon and movie theatre. The village will also be set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens.
