For generations the land has shaped the culture and identity of Ngāi Tahu. Our history and traditions are recorded in the names of places, mountains, rivers, lakes and oceans ensuring the footsteps of our ancestors remain forever upon the landscape.
The land, and our relationship with it, is one of the foundations on which we are building the future of Ngāi Tahu. Through its investments and developments Ngāi Tahu Property strives to honour that enduring relationship.
Excellence in sustainable land use, environmentally sensitive buildings and developments, inter-generational commitment and long-term vision help to define the Ngāi Tahu Property business ethos and offer the company a point of difference and competitive advantage.
Owning assets with a market value in excess of $469m Ngāi Tahu Property is a substantial New Zealand business with a focus on five key areas: Property Investment, Property Management, Property Development, Farming, and management of the tribe's Right of First Refusal to purchase Crown property assets.
