“Ballentyne's--The Finest in Christchurch!”
Reviewed 24 March 2017 via mobile

This is a World-Class department store! Top shelf merchandise, beautifully displayed, and with a wonderful sales staff!

Don't miss the Gourmet Department--you can get lost in the amazing selections of delicious sweet and savory items for hours!

“Artistry and resiliancy”
Reviewed 20 March 2017

What a great adaptation to adversity showing creativity and strength. Build quickly post earthquake but with a true unique character. The metal art sculptures are fun and well done. I hope this area remains as a living memorial long after the city is rebuilt. Spoiler alert--Christchurch will be in the running for most beautiful downtown in a few years--and that's worldwide!!

“New, old and broken”
Reviewed 7 March 2017

You can see new, old, renovating and broken buildings and flat land at once. Workers are working earnest to recover damages. Worth watch.

“A creative way to cope with the aftermath of the earthquake”
Reviewed 4 March 2017

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.
