Re:START, City Mall

About the Project

The vision was to urgently re-establish business activity and public interest in the central city’s heart through a safe, commercially viable, retail and hospitality precinct.

Born from the need to breathe new life into the Christchurch CBD following the February earthquakes, this project won international acclaim for its innovation and excellence.
