Do spend some time walking around this imaginative redevelopment by Re: Start. It's use of adapted containers for banks, shops and food outlets is unique, plus some modern, creative approaches to street art are well worth exploring. Combine it with a trip to Quake City almost opposite.

Like in a previous review I like the way they have adapted to using old storage containers to keep the small business owners going until reconstruction is done unless the owners want to keep this as the new shopping district then also a good idea.

Not sure if it was just because of the week between Christmas and New Years, but everything was open and hopping at 10am (great food, esp enjoyed the brick oven pizza) and shutting down at 4:45pm.

Best Coffee in CHC, the most amazing people making you a good coffee or chai, with knowledge of their products. Next to it you'll find lovely Woodfired Pizza. Stunning flavors Special Vege is my favorite. Before 3pm you can order lunch size for only 10 dollars.

It has been a while but it is an area that is tarting to get its mojo back. Seems busier every year we visit.

Cashel street is a giant construction zone since the earthquake.About half the building have been rebuilt and the rest should be finished soon.It still has some nice shops etc to visit and the Newstart Mall is a must see.Event though there is a lot of construction going on this place is still worth a visit
