Unfortunately the container mall has been deconstructed, and Cashell Street is just another street in Christchurch. Not sure that it is a tourist attraction or activity as such.

I saw some photos of containers along this street. When I arrived, there were all gone. I was dissapointed. Still, this street is a good to walk though.
