Central City Momentum advice


A thriving, vibrant central city is critical to Christchurch’s recovery and regeneration. The rebuilding of the central city to realise its bold and aspirational vision for the people of Christchurch and its many visitors is the most ambitious urban renewal project in New Zealand’s history.

We were requested to evaluate progress and provide advice to the Crown and Christchurch City Council on what's required to increase momentum and support regeneration of the central city.

Our report on the right-hand side of this page provides a current state assessment and recommendations on addressing the matters identified in the assessment.
