Five storey building up by Christmas


Nelson’s newest “high rise” will be up by Christmas, say contractors.

The five storey Quest building on Collingwood St started in July and contractors Arrow International say they’re making good progress. Nelson manager for Arrow, Steve Kelso, says they hope to have the building up by Christmas, with work then starting on fitting out the building before it officially opens in May.

The building will house serviced apartments operated by Quest, a national chain.

Steve says there’s been plenty of interest in the building from passersby and that all of the sub-contractors used have been local firms.
