A typical street corner in central Christchurch.

This was the site of the old Railway Station which, about 20 years ago, was converted into a Hoytes movie theatre complex and Science Alive. At that time it was a huge development for Christchurch, but now the site is empty and we await the next development – whatever and whenever that might be …………. I think it is to be a piazza, cinema complex, hotel, restaurants and bars.

I do hope the rebuild begins soon as there are now too many spaces in the city.
