All reviews container mall shipping containers restart mall shopping precinct worth a visit post earthquake central city sunny day avon river ballantynes retailers adversity vendors remembrance tourists sculptures chch
Visited on Tuesday 22nd May. We went search for the container shops and were disappointed they were nolonger there. I guess for the locals things are getting back to normal and a new shopping centre will open on this spot soon.
Before the earthquakes this street was lined with charming Victorian and Edwardian frontages. They all fell down and killed people. Then we had some years of it as a no go redzone. Next we had the quirky container mall which was fun. This has been...More

The Re:START container mall was born from the need to breathe new life into the Christchurch central city, following the devastating earthquake on 22 February, 2011. Best time of the year to visit - spring is pretty beautiful in the garden city. Facilities and services - same as any Mall. Benefit to the customer, you get to be part of our transitional city, to see the rebuild alongside the devistation - its pretty amazing. Some of the projects going on are like nothing in NZ, its exciting, come be part of it.
