“Imagination use of different materials to create a vibrant part of the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2017

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.

“Nice use of storage containers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2017

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.

“Very cool area to hang out in but closes by 5pm.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2017

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. One not so nice thing was the guy from the Cosy cafe made us take our food and leave his place (even though half of our family had food from his cafe and the other half had brick oven pizza). Really cool to see all the things made out of shipping containers... ATM, currency exchange, shops, bathrooms...
