I think only people from CHC will find these interesting.

Hmmm, that guy was being very rude and you can just ignore him. But have you actually been there to make such comment? That was equally as unnecessary as the comment of which you found offensive.

Great pictures! I'm curious how tall these proposed/approved buildings will be?

One thing that always strikes me about the CBD is that it's so big. It may not have many talls, but the area covered by the city is quite large. Anyone know the actual size; how many square kilometres?

It's anyones guess really. The height limit is set to be changed with the new council so we can build taller. The tallest building under construction now - which will be our tallest - is just 92m. There are flurries of 14 storey apartment buildings going up but nothing much more than that yet. There are initiatives like the 'Central city revitalization project' which plan to have more office buildings built in the CBD - currently they are all being built in the western suburbs - and to increase the living population of the area illustrated below from 20-30,000 more within the next 15 years. So that alone will provide a construction boom it's just hard to say wether we will get real skyscrapers on not just yet.

Ah yes. I posted that a few pages ago but here it is again.

Central Christchurch area is 2km x 2km (4km sq) exclusive of Hagley Park.



You can see it's the area to the right of hagley park, clearly defined by the 6 lane avenues which surround it.

Ahhhh I see... I hope they will figure it out and get better for downtown Christchurch. Looking forward to hear the changes around downtown Christchurch incoming years from now.
