We also took a look around the ReSTART mall which was built in the aftermath of the earthquake to allow business owners to continue to operate whilst their own properties were repaired or rebuilt. The unique solution was to use shipping containers converted into shops, and we were really impressed at how useful the containers were as shops!
The Inspiring ReSTART Mall, Christchurch
Christchurch was devastated by the earthquake, and the city is keen to bring tourists back after a major drop off following the earthquake. We’d highly recommend staying for a couple of days (perhaps in the Christchurch Jailhouse?) and taking a look at the rebuilding efforts![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”0″ override_padding=”yes” h_padding=”2″ top_padding=”1″ bottom_padding=”2″ overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ shift_y=”0″][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]
