“A creative way to cope with the aftermath of the earthquake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

There is still a lot of construction going on in the city centre of Christchurch. The RE:Start Mall at Cashel Street is a very creative way to restart normal life despite the restoration.

All the goodies here packed into a quirky and innovative shopping area. Check out the central art work signage.

“Great innovation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2017

I am not sure how this differs in principle to Re:START but it is a great show of initiative to have shops inside shipping containers, much quicker than a rebuild.

“A small shopping area built out of containers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2017

After the 2011 earthquake, most of the city of. Heist hurch was damaged. In order to provide some retail outlets, shipping containers were moved next to or on top of one another to provide secure and safe structures for retailers to move in to. There are individual shops and different style eateries. Althgh more and more of the City is being rebuilt, we hope this, 'Re-Start' area will remain

“Underwhelmed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2017

Underwhelmed by it, but accept it is a good idea. The shops were mostly a bit quirky, which is fine if that is what you were after, but we weren't
