Younger adults keen on central city living
A CHRISTCHURCH City Council
commissioned survey published in
February which looked at the cen-
tral city as a place to live found a
solid, encouraging level of inter-
est in moving back to the rebuilt
It stated 48 per cent of more
than 2000 residents surveyed
would consider a move into the
central city at some stage.
Of those, 6 per cent were keen
rebuilders and keen to go now'',
8 per cent were mid-stage movers
and would consider it during the
rebuild, while 29 per cent would

the people most likely to consider
moving were younger, without

ownership and enjoy shopping,
visiting bars, cafes and parks, and

All the segments strongly pre-
ferred stand-alone houses,
whether renting or buying, and
wanted to be able to have pets,
privacy, and safety at night.
They want to feel a sense of
belonging -- to feel a welcomed

As such, promotions centring on
the vitality, fun and fashion of
central city living should not over-
shadow the core human desire to

Yet there is a natural tension
between an interest in considering
a move to the central city and a
desire to wait until development
has progressed to a point at which
people can see that the planned
rebuild is succeeding.
This means that the earliest
developments will better suit
childless professionals (renting
and buying) who are prepared to
take a risk'. Also of importance is
the need to address people's
preconceptions of central city resi-
dential developments. There
remains the perception that these
can be of poor quality, with high
density shoebox' housing and poor
long term maintenance.''
RE:START MALL: Winning design.
Modular design is
a winning concept
THE ARCHITECTS behind
Christchurch's inner-city con-
tainer mall have been honoured
with a national award.
The New Zealand Architec-
ture Award for urban design and
planning was taken home by
The Buchan Group, which
designed Re:Start Mall.
The post-quake project was a
huge effort, taking only seven
months from start to finish.
Prime Minister John Key
opened the precinct in October
2011, and it has been a tourist
The mall, made from shipping
containers, was the brainchild of
Anton Tritt, a Christchurch
senior associate of The Buchan
The judges enjoyed the
precinct's bright, modular
aesthetic and considered it an
imaginative, popular model for
The award, given on Friday
night, was a fitting tip of the hat
to the team which put it
together. Leighs Construction

The mall has expanded since
it was first built, with new
elements including a food
precinct and performance space.
