On the site of “The Strip” ………. a very popular pre-earthquake area of bars and restaurants with a vibrant nightlife.

Now a new development has begun which will be brilliant ……. assuming it will look like the plans posted along the fence. It is to be made up of lanes with bars, cafes, restaurants, shops and first floor office space with courtyards and open space down to the River Avon.

The third photo is as it is now ……… typical of the roads we negotiate every day as we drive around Christchurch.

The official site shows a slightly different building, which I like better. Either way it is very positive for the city to have this fabulous area being redeveloped, and we will patiently wait to see, and enjoy, the final outcome.
