“Great idea”
Reviewed 30 January 2017 via mobile

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.

“Creative use of shipping containers!”
Reviewed 23 January 2017

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.

“Symbol of revival”
Reviewed 19 January 2017

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 is fun, and it's definitely worth stopping by in if you're in Christchurch.

“Restart is our REAL memorial”
Reviewed 19 January 2017

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. For me, Restart is our REAL memorial of the earthquakes - it shows the resilience and ingenuity of the people of Ch-ch in setting up businesses even in containers.'
VISIT before developers get the rest!
