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

The Restart Mall on Cashel Street is a quirky and interesting shopping precinct fashioned from re-purposed shipping containers. Unfortunately a number of retail outlets were vacant, however it's still worth a visit for food and refreshments. We can recommend the coffee, the Greek and burger...More

Shipping containers repurposed as shops with lots of food vendors for inexpensive meals. As town is rebuilt the number of shops is decreasing, but still good for a walk around.

Glad we visited here as fab place to wander around for a wee while. Not all the containers are occupied now but there are enough shops and food places to explore. It was great to see how places like this came about after the earthquake.
