Interesting to see how Christchurch coped with the post-quake period and how this shopping mall would have a been a key part of the city as it rebuilt itself. There are still a few containers operating and a reasonable number still offering all types of...More

We started at the empty chairs memorial for the earthquake victims and through the shopping mall to the Memorial Arch and there were plenty examples of how this city was and is affected by the quake.

Since this was recently purchased and flagged for redevelopment, many of the retailers have moved away. There are a few restaurants still here but it is my understanding that this entire area will be redeveloped in spring 2018 so if you want to see it,...More

in two years this street will be transformed. The East Frame, the new central park, tha gym the access to the new shops. It'll be a winner!

This was, I imagine, a busy little precinct. However, now that stores have their own premises back and usable, it is very quiet. Some of the container shops were empty. Quite sad really as I'm sure it could have remained as a great tourist attraction

Cashel Street has nothing much to offer visitors, a few shops, Container Mall is nearly empty of shops. Just before you get to Bridge of Remembrance you have SPARK BIKE were you can hire bikes.

Most of the shops (containers) are gone now as the ANZ and BNZ centre have opened with a variety of shops. There are still a few food places such as Dimitris. But asides from that, not many shops as you'd be better off going down...More

Beautiful area, even with the obvious devastation that occurred in 2011. The shops were cute, friendly staff and a good array of items. Was so lovely and colourful, which really brought a lot of life to the area. We spent hours just walking around the...More

This street has an abundance of places to visit, not least of which is the Bridge of Remembrance, Container Mall and City Mall. There are still empty lots from the earthquake, which decimated the city.
