First few business sites sold
Years of planning and months of formation work and installation of services have finally come to fruition at the North Oamaru Business Park and the first four of the 17 sites have now been sold.
Stage one of the $3.5 million park, which is located on the northern boundary of Oamaru, is now complete and titles for the 17 lots on the 22 hectare site have been issued.
All infrastructure work on the site was done by Whitestone Contracting whose business development manager, Linton Clarke, said it had been "a very good project".
"Whitestone Contracting has now completed all infrastructure work, including stormwater, sewer, water, roading, street lighting and landscaping work," he said.
"A slip lane at the entrance of the site is complete and Network Waitaki have moved all electrical lines on SH1 in front of the park underground.
"The only work left to do is the installation of the street signs."
The business park was a dream long held by the late Tony Spivey Snr, who died soon after turning the first sod at the development in 2012.
Oamaru Land Holdings, owned by Auckland-based businessmen Andrew and Michael Carpenter, is behind the scheme.
Sites at the park are being marketed by Spivey Real Estate, Oamaru, which has confirmed the sale of four sites.
