Having suffered structural damage during the earthquakes, this magnificent building is currently undergoing restoration and rebuilding works by the city council. Plenty of information on the hoarding around the site to let you know the progress to date.

Normally this is an interesting place to visit. However since the earthquakes it is closed due to structural damage which it is estimated will cost some 175 million dollars to repair.

This building has been badly damaged in earthquakes especially 22 Feb and is closed until it us decided if it is financially viable to repair or pull down.

Town Hall was basically destroyed in the 2011 earthquake, but surprisingly they are rebuilding it. A real mess presently and, realistically, probably wont be reopened for 3-4 years. WAS really nice, as my rating suggests. Worth a look just to see the devastation, and of all of Christchurch area.
