Plans for two new Christchurch apartment towers promising million-dollar homes have been dropped, with a slow market getting the blame.

The owners of the sites of The Verve Apartments planned for Peterborough St by Victoria St, and the Carlton Mill Apartments planned opposite Hagley Park, are both offered their land for sale.

The Carlton Mill Apartments were announced as a rebuild of the Millbrook apartments on Carlton Mill Rd, which were demolished after the earthquakes.
