Ultimately and importantly, building residences that people will love

For Chapter, we saw an opportunity in Ashburton to fill a void and create and deliver secure, high quality residences for people familiar with how sought-after this suburb is.

Managing Director, KM Develop
From a world-class developer.

KM Develop creates boutique residential spaces that set a benchmark for quality urban living in well-developed neighbourhoods. Our residences are more than just attractive properties to live in — they are communities of people, places of rest and retreat, and spaces to create memories. We think about comfort, about the space, about the floorplan and the quality of living.

We think about who your neighbours will be, the nearby parks and cafes you can walk to, and the everyday amenity that makes living better.

Chapter incorporates an organic palette of warm timbers and natural stone, taking cues from the leafy surroundings of Gardiner’s Creek, local parks and reserves set in amongst the heart of Ashburton.
