Position your business for the future in one of the fastest growing regions in New Zealand

Queenstown Lakes District Council growth projections have Wanaka growing by 43% in 10 years and doubling in 20! They project the number of visitors on peak days will be circa. 30,000 and 37,000 in 10 and 20 years respectively.

Willowridge Developments created Three Parks to cater for the dynamic growth projected for Wanaka and surrounding Central Otago and Queenstown Lakes Districts.

The Central Otago and Queenstown Lakes Districts population is estimated at 70,500 and projected to grow by at least 30% over the next 10 years. Wanaka’s current population is approx. 14,000 (larger than Oamaru) and is projected to grow in excess of 43% during the next 10 years.


Post Covid Wanaka has seen unprecedented demand for residential properties and sections with significant waiting lists for residential developments across the value spectrum, as the prospect of an idyllic lifestyle lures people from around New Zealand and the globe.


For those companies evaluating the proposition of establishing or expanding their business in the Central Otago and Queenstown Lakes Districts, Wanaka provides a viable option with a large and growing domestic market, convenient location for service and distribution and the Three Parks residential and commercial development currently under construction.


Three Parks is a mixed use development of approximately 140 hectares consisting of over 1,000 new residential households, retirement and lifestyle villages, tourism and community precinct, a business park and retail centre.


The focus of this development is the new retail centre consisting of over 40,000 square metres of retail and commercial premises designed to complement the existing Wanaka Town Centre and to service the growth of the local and surrounding district population.
