This is an area where the city moved to get back on its feet by using shipping containers to house shops, bars, etc. Christchurch has shown great enterprise, and this is now a tourist destination in its own right! Try not to miss it.

Great way to quickly bring back retailing to the downtown after the earthquake. We didn't find much to buy but there certainly was a lot of foot traffic. Wonder what will happen once traditional retail space returns.

Read about this and worth a visit. The people of Christchurch are doing an amazing job to get people back into the city. A food court and plenty of interesting shops but prices appeared to be quite high.

This quite bustling little shopping district showcases Christchurch's ingenuity in the face of its troubles, most conspicuously in the funky architecture: jazzily painted, converted shipping containers. There are food stalls, coffee shops, and a selection of your typical shopping district businesses. It's central, the mood...More

Restart which used to stretch all along Cashel from the river to Colombo had a great (outwardly apparent) atmosphere especially at weekends and is the new cultural centre of Ch-ch. Some of it survives, the rest grabbed by developers with their eyes on the remainder....More

One can only have the greatest admiration for the shop owners for getting back to business. The shops are different from the usual city centre ones but then so is the centre of Christchurch. Cashel is attractively laid out and the shops provide a good...More

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...More

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.
