“Ok”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

The container city was a great idea to rebuild morale in this city but it is time to move on before it becomes tired

“Start Up”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I expected a little more of the Shipping Container Mall.
It is quite expensive in the area.
Although was great to see the industrial look and practical nature of the shipping containers

“Great & fascinating visit”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

When I visited Christchurch, I was not prepared for seeing those containers transformed into shops. When I reached that street by walking randomly in the city center, I was puzzled at first, then totally fascinated. I would never have thought making shops out of containers could have produced such a nice looking result.

If you visit Christchurch, do go see that street. It is certainly worth the time.

“Ingenious”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

What a way to re-start - using the usually bland shipping container in brilliant, vibrant colours. The shops here are great, especially the cafes, and the atmosphere is something else.

Brilliant mall experience in Christchurch after the earthquake. A bunch of stacked containers with a range of beautiful shops inside
