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

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!
