A Place to relax
At the heart of the development is Ūkaipō - meaning Mother, origin, source of sustenance; to return to one's true home. The vision for the building is to provide the community a place where the best in mental, physical, spiritual, emotional and family wellbeing can be found.
Collett's Corner is a building with a difference. Its purpose is rooted in the Lyttelton community it serves and is supported by hundreds of people across Aotearoa who collectively own it.
Over 600 everyday people came together to make Collett's Corner New Zealand's first community minded, equity crowdfunded commercial development.
The top two floors are home to 20 coliving inspired apartments. Each apartment will be sold with its own unit title. The ground floor and basement will be owned by Collett's Corner Ltd, and leased to Ūkaipō, the wellbeing sanctuary.
The Investors page has a library of information for shareholders and people interested to learn more about the overall development. We share this information freely with the hope to inspire other communities to develop projects that support thriving communities.
Collett’s Corner is a multi-use commercial building, to be constructed on Lyttelton’s main street. Designed to bring people together, the building features a lively mix of spaces including a centre for wellbeing, hospitality, retail, laneways and twenty independently owned co-living apartments.
