The city is moving in the right direction. It's growing in population and it's growing UP in many different ways!!

Hopefully when the economy settles, much more will happen in terms of growth.

Milan! Christchurch is the 2nd largest city! The 2006 city population estimate was 367,000, which would now be about 380,000.... and the metro area is over 420,000 (incuding satellite towns & suburbs in Selwyn/Waimak)

It may not look like it in the first pic but they aren't derelict buildings all those shops are still in business, the pic was taken on sunday that's all. South Central CHC.











Didn't have my tripod. Blurry skyline would have been a nice shot.



Bank of New Zealand, owned by Australians, of course.



Me believes that in the next few years there will be at least 2 high rises that will disrupt this view.
That's the South Pacific on the horizon.









South East CHC



SOL District (South of Lichfield)



Beautiful Canterbury

It is becoming increasingly ethnically diverse. I think the most populous Foriegn born groups are British, Chinese, Indian, Russian & Korean.... in that order...or something like it.

Cheers. No metro system just buses really, but light rail is being investigated and new tram tracks are being laid throughout the central city.

True true. Heaps of Kiwis seem to be moving to Queensland & Perth whereas a lot more people from Melbourne & Sydney are now calling CHC home.

You da man Milan.
