It is lovely watching Cashel Street come back to life after the earthquake, but I really missed the shipping container mall that served as the central shopping area for many years. Even so, Cashel Street will be beautiful once fully finished. I hope there will...More

After the devastation of the 2011 earthquakes which saw several fatalities on Cashel St, the rebuild is slowly taking shape. Anchored by the beautifully restored Bridge of Remembrance at one end and Ballantynes Department Store in the middle, Cashel now features most of the high...More

A unique 'street' with shops and restaurants (temporarily?) housed in containers. They have been giving funky make-overs, so what you see is almost an architectural achievement. We loved the (fast food) places too.

We visited Christchurch in May to check how the construction was going. Pleasantly surprised to see 'container city' still operating. Such an iconic boutique area cannot help but love it, both for what is is but also what it represents in spirit.

Love seeing the innovative way Christchurch responded to the earthquake. I honour you in the resourceful way you quickly regrouped and restored business and filling the communities’ need. Worth a look.

Not as many container's here as I thought there would be & the shops that are here are a lot larger than one container. Must say the prices were very reasonable so we did do some shopping but there were no more than a dozen...More

Container Mall (previously called Re:Start Mall) was built out of shipping containers as a temporary solution to host stores destroyed after the Christchurch earthquake. It was planned as a 2-year temporary solution, but it lives on 6 years since. Christchurch is a city under construction...More
