A three-storey aged-care complex could be built on the Cashmere hill site where the historic Rhodes Memorial Convalescent Home once stood.

Built in 1886, the Rhodes Memorial Convalescent Home sustained significant damage in the earthquakes and the decision was made to demolish it.

Its owners subsequently sold the Overdale Drive site, including 16 self-contained aged-care apartments that survived the earthquakes, to another aged-care operator.

That company, Rhodes on Cashmere Lifecare Ltd, has applied to the Christchurch City Council for resource consent to build a three-storey "care home" with 47 single bedrooms, as well as 31 one and two-bedroom independent living apartments.
