Half of the homes at One Central are targeted to achieve a Lifemark® 3-Star rating for incorporating baseline accessibility and Universal Design.
Located in the heart of Christchurch, One Central runs from Lichfield Street to Kilmore Street and is situated between Manchester Street and Madras Street.
The Latimer Terraces, Bedford Apartments, and Bedford Terraces have all now been completed and achieved Lifemark® certification.
The Latimer Terraces are a shining example, these 20 three-storey terrace units achieved Lifemark® 4- Star rating for age friendly design. More importantly, during the design stage with Lifemark® provisions were made for future lift installation in all the units.

In conjunction with our Lifemark® product partner, Vestner New Zealand Limited, Fletcher Living also selected the A4000 enclosed platform lift from the Vestner range of solutions for their Latimer Terraces showhome.
The A4000 was customised to match the décor and joinery, the end result is both functional and stylish.
The Bedford Apartments also achieved Lifemark® 4-Star ratings, and consist of 44 one and two-bedroom apartments all with open plan living and west facing balconies.
Eleven ground floor units of the Bedford Terraces achieved a Lifemark® 3- Star Rating.

Fletcher Livings Canterbury’s Regional Manager Russel Pyne said feedback on the Universal Design in One Central has been really positive!
“We’ve had a great response from the market for our homes in One Central, accessibility is certainly a top priority for many homeowners. Lifts, level access, and thoughtful Universal Design add to the liveability for people of all ages.”
Lifemark® looks forward to seeing more homes in One Central achieve certification for Universal Design.
Nothing will be better than seeing a thriving community full of people of all ages, stages, and abilities, living in homes designed for life!
