What is an ideal population level for the Garden City?

Would it be half a million to 800,000?

The big challange right now is to stop the population decline before we can think of the future size of our city its still loosing 500 per month. Get the rebuild into full swing and give concessons to attract new developments which will create the jobs and allow people to stay here and have a future. The city only had a 1% growth rate before the quakes so it takes 10 years to add 30,000 people and may be 2022 before it returns to pre quake levels. Even by the end of this century it maybe only 500,000. That's if we have no more quakes...hopefully.

ETHNIC HUB | Proposed

Christchurch set for ethnic diversity in quake rebuild

Christchurch could rival Auckland in ethnic diversity as it attracts high numbers of migrants needed for the post-quake rebuild, says Massey University sociologist Professor Paul Spoonley. He says up to 40,000 migrants are predicted to arrive in Christchurch in the next 18 months based on estimates from Canterbury Employment and Skills. This could prompt a “sea change” in the way immigrants are perceived by the city, which is one of the country’s least ethnically diverse areas. Dubbed the “earthquake effect” by the Asia New Zealand Foundation, people in Christchurch are said to feel more positive about migrants as a result of local immigrant communities playing a major role in helping with recovery after the February 2011 quake.

One thing he is clear about is that the demographic changes set to occur in Christchurch could transform the city infamous for its white supremacist National Front movement. While Christchurch does have small ethnic enclaves, hosting lantern festivals for Chinese New Year and Diwali festivals for the Indian community, the scale of the anticipated migrant influx is unparalleled in its history. “The influx proportionate to the population is significant. I’m not sure we’ve seen anything like it in New Zealand”, he says. “It’s one thing to talk about it and a different to experience it. Conditions will change as you get a significant influx of culturally different people.”

He says the city’s businesses and employers need to be prepared to welcome large numbers of new migrants needed for construction, engineering and IT, and to consider services they need. “If you bring immigrant workers in, you deliberately need to plan for their arrival, and use their skills but also make them feel welcome. Otherwise it’s not going to work,” says Professor Spoonley, who has researched and written about immigration and employment issues in New Zealand for the past 30 years. A key issue is ensuring employers understand how to manage diverse work forces. “If you go from managing largely, if not wholly, Pakeha workers then who is going to help employers learn to manage a much more diverse work force?”

Beyond the workplace a range of services must be created to cater for large immigrant communities, he says. “They don’t simply need jobs, they need doctors, dentists, real estate agents, hairdressers, food – a whole lot of ancillary or service jobs that are needed.” “Migrants look for support and infrastructure. This might be church, food they are familiar with, people who speak the same language”. He says the size of the influx could result in the country’s third major immigration wave. Auckland was the destination of earlier waves – the first in the 1950s and 60s with Pacific Island migrants, then in the 1990s and after 2000 with Asians arriving.

Auckland’s 1.5m population is now comprised of 40 per cent migrants, while around 20 per cent of Christchurch’s residents are overseas-born, less than the 23 per cent national average. Asia and Europe are the regions most of Christchurch-bound migrants are likely to come from, with India the obvious source of IT workers, Professor Spoonley says. Christchurch business, community and civic leaders could draw on Auckland’s 40 years’ of experience with migrant communities, he says. “I’m not sure the labour market is one of them, because there is still a discounting of immigrant qualifications and experience. But there are a lot of agencies in Auckland that help immigrants adapt and I think some of that expertise could be made available to Christchurch.”

Support grows for ethnic hub

A proposed international hub aggregating ethnic businesses in one area in Christchurch's new central business district could well be the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere. The Canterbury Business Association (CBA) is proposing a Christchurch international hub which will put ethnic businesses and migrant service providers in one area in the city's new CBD. The idea for an international precinct was included in the central city draft plan submitted to Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee last year, but it was not in the final blueprint. The hub, which was in its early planning stages, would be a destination for locals and visitors, CBA chief executive Taz Mukorombindo said. "It's just basically a campus-style development that will have retail, food, art, and training facilities." The planned hub would put international language schools, a market for ethnic arts and crafts, New Zealand tourist souvenir shops, ethnic kitchenettes and ethnic restaurants, and migrant social services together in the central city. The hub would also have a place for cultural performances and ethnic-style gardens, and Mukorombindo hoped to have a vegetable market every weekend to encourage small business start-ups and micro-enterprise. "It's focused around creating a place to accommodate the diversity of our city. The ideas are community focused and it contains elements of community involvement in supporting local businesses and creating jobs for local people." It would give ethnic businesses displaced by the quakes somewhere to go, he said ... MORE

Kind of like a Chinatown, but more diverse? Cool idea, these sorts of places work well around the world, I rate them highly. Always cool to see ethnic shops, markets, stalls, entertainment and businesses in one confined area.

has there been any consideration given to a mini "chinatown" or similar to cater for growing migrant trends and give the city a real cosmopolitan feel...

I made a big noise in the submissions that the city needed a cluster of ethnic areas. We have the populations to sustain a Koreatown, Little Tokyo, Chinatown, heck even a Pasifika quarter for us palagi to visit. These communities have the drive initiative and enthusiasm to do this. While this has developed in an unstructured ugly way along Riccarton Rd I think its best we have a proper area in the cbd. I think it's only a matter of time before something is announced.

But first and foremost. I 2nd Tony's suggestion for a 'hells kitchen' Italian/Mediterranean type neighbourhood. While Christchurch has never been overly popular with Southern Europeans there are still plenty of us here. Would love my own little burb in which to while away the hours...

Shit mate if you were in Chc you would know already its taken off well and truly (unfortunately). All these rebuild guys in town- away from their families, making good money, spending it all on rent, booze and hookers. Imo it's a real unfortunate by product of of the situation we find ourselves in. It's great that they are here getting the city back on its feet- I just wish they'd stop smashing glass, bashing each other up and leaving condoms everywhere.

Like I said, it's like being in a Western Australian mining town.

It would be really great if some provision could be made for some sort of market to be established. Chch has never really had one (arts centre was a sort of one I guess) but a much larger, diverse market along the lines of the asian markets (think mong kok nite market Hong kong) that cater for everything and give locals a chance to peddle their wares. A market is always a tourist draw card - anywhere you go world wide - especially at nite with all the sounds and smells of foodstalls and entertainment. It could perhaps just be thurs - Sunday nite over the summer to start things off to see how it goes but if done well it could really work - especially with all the international families arriving into chch now and what better way to fill in a warm nor west evening over the summer.. bring it on! It could be the biggest and best nite market in NZ!

TAIT COMMUNICATIONS CAMPUS | Proposed

Major Tait building plans signalled

Christchurch electronics company Tait Communications is racing ahead with its plans for an enlarged campus behind its existing Wairakei Rd building. It has applied for Christchurch City Council resource consent to build two buildings, increase its parking and create a slow-running stream to deal with stormwater and give a campus feel. The largest building is two storeys, with a 3500-square-metre footprint, complete with a cafe and atrium. It would be filled with existing staff who, for the past few years, have been housed in leased premises at the corner of Roydvale Ave and Wairakei Rd as the company expanded beyond the office which has been its home since the 1980s. The other building is a 2000sqm single-storey data centre which would be built and occupied by an unnamed partner on Tait land ... MORE

SOMO - SOUTH OF MOORHOUSE AVENUE | Projects + News + Gallery

Be Part Of Christchurch’s 'Most Dynamic Neighbourhood'


A new office development in Christchurch’s burgeoning commercial and industrial precinct is available for lease – urgently needed in the city after so many office buildings have been destroyed or demolished after the earthquakes. The modern low-rise office building on the popular Lincoln Road in Addington is slated for completion in 2013, offering floor place options ranging from 400 square metres to 5,500 square metres. The suburbs of Addington and neighbouring Sydenham have recently been dubbed SOMO – South of Moorhouse Avenue – and were described by iconic travel guide Lonely Planet as the city’s ‘most dynamic neighbourhood’. The three-level building has been structurally engineered by leading engineering consultancy Ruamoko Solutions, to create a structural steel design which complies with the newly created Christchurch seismic standards. Designed by leading architectural and planning consultancy Jasmax, with construction by well-known Christchurch company Armitage Williams Construction, the offices feature flexible working spaces with high levels of natural light, energy efficient features, and green landscaped areas. Upon completion, the offices will be supplied with all essential services including access to fibre optic cabling. The ground floor of the building has been created in a way to allow for a café as well as retail tenants. The office space is for lease by Bayleys, and is being marketed by Bayleys Canterbury salespeople Stewart White and Chris Frank. Mr White said the space would appeal to business owners seeking to position their business to maximise the revitalisation of the Addington area. “The area immediately south of Christchurch’s central city precinct has undergone significant growth over the past year, with a range of businesses and cultural institutions shifting from their quake-damaged premises in the central city to set up in Addington,” he said. “Addington in particular has been attracting interest from some of Christchurch’s top cafés and restaurants eager to position themselves in this sought-after location.” Mr White said the area benefitted from good transport links to the city from the south, and was well connected to the public transport network - with a number of bus stops located along the length of Lincoln Road. The development includes the creation of visitor and retail parking spaces, with a drop off and loading zone to be created located off the Bernard Street entrance, to optimise accessibility for short-term visitors. The majority of off-street staff parking will be situated in a secure location at the back of the site, with additional all-day parking available on side streets adjacent to Lincoln Road. “The area will also soon be linked through the new Southern Motorway, improving access to other main arterial routes. “Workers in the area are well serviced by established local café and retail business such as the Addington Coffee Co-op and the New York Deli, while the nearby Tower Junction Mega Centre offers 30,000 square metres of large scale retail stores. “Lincoln Road is also close to Addington Raceway – the new home of the Crusaders rugby team, Addington Raceway, CBS Canterbury Arena, the Court Theatre, Hagley Park, and the Westpac Business Centre.”

ETHNIC HUB | Proposed

Thanks to iThomas ...

A visiting Australian expert in urban design will tell the Office of Ethnic Affairs’ EthnicA conference in Christchurch that cultural factors need to be taken into account in the rebuild of Christchurch for the city’s future success. Richard Brecknock is an urban development and regeneration specialist who will be speaking at a session entitled “Intercultural Cities – culturally relevant urban design for the Christchurch Earthquake re-build.”
The session aims to provide an opportunity for ethnic people to discuss their views and ideas about Christchurch’s regeneration.

Intercultural cities is a term used to discuss how the urban environment can affect how people get on with each other and ethnic interaction. Mixing across cultures in schools, public spaces, and cultural events has been shown to have the greatest impact when it starts young and can have a lifelong impact. In contrast, if separation is encouraged by a city’s design this can prompt areas of disadvantage, which can have serious repercussions for the economy and people’s wellbeing.

Mr Brecknock believes it is important that cultural development in the community is given a focus and he will share the tools he encourages planners and designers to use to achieve this. Other speakers at the Intercultural cities session are Diana Turner, General Manager Strategy Planning and Policy at CERA and Shenuka de Sylva who’s a lecturer and the First Year Programme Director at the School of Architecture, University of Wellington.

A second international speaker at the conference is Peter Holbrook who will talk about the potential of social enterprise – that is, organisations that use a business model to generate profit that is used for a social purpose. Mr Holbrook is the CEO of Social Enterprise UK and is passionate about communities creating change through innovation and believes social enterprise offers significant opportunities for organisations struggling in the new financial reality.

Another key session will discuss issues surrounding New Zealand’s immigration trend and the growth in Asian migrants over the past 25 years. There will also be workshops led by experts on: Social enterprise, International students, Family violence, and Ethical dilemmas

Plans for business, technology campus

A leading hi-tech company wants more than 10 hectares of rural land near Christchurch Airport rezoned so that it can build a business and technology campus. Tait Ltd (formerly Tait Electronics) operates from several sites in the Harewood area. However, with its international customer base growing, it wants to bring its operations together at one purpose-built site. It has bought 10ha of rural land off Wooldridge Rd, opposite Nunweek Park, on which to build a new campus. It wants the Christchurch City Council's approval for a private plan change so it can proceed. There would be eight buildings on the campus, all of them low-rise. In documents supplied to the council, the company says having a purpose-designed work environment is essential if it is to attract and retain employees who are part of the global services, research and technology employment market. Tait Ltd started in 1962 as an electronics company specialising in mobile radio communications. It has grown into a global communications solution provider with more than 5000 customers in 100 countries worldwide. It plans to significantly increase its work force and says its existing premises are too small to cater for the projected growth. Council policy planner Anita Hansbury, in a report prepared for today's planning committee meeting, is recommending the council accept Tait's private plan change request and proceed with publicly notifying it. The land Tait bought had been used for horticultural activities. The tomato-growing glasshouses that covered a substantial part of the land were badly damaged in the earthquakes and had to be demolished, Hansbury said. Use of the land for rural purposes was no longer considered economic so Tait, seeing the opportunity to consolidate its operations at one site, bought the land. Tait is one of largest private employers in the region. The consolidation of its business operations would provide additional employment opportunities in the area and potentially increase the country's export earnings. "Tait's ambition is to create an exemplary world-class campus work environment, using a range of sustainable building techniques and renewable energy sources, which will attract top talent from around the world and contribute further to the region's economic growth," Hansbury said. Other benefits included the creation of a public pedestrian and cycle link from Wooldridge Rd and Nunweek Park to Stanleys Rd and Tait's offer to make the car park on the site available to sports park users at weekends.

SKOPE | Princess Street | Proposed


Christchurch patricians the Stewart family have unveiled an engineered timber and glass design that will replace the quake-damaged Princess St office of its business Skope Industries. Skope chairman Robert Stewart said his family would own the three-storey building and lease one floor to their refrigeration engineering company for corporate offices. The post-tension timber building, using Canterbury University-designed laminated veneer lumber, was supposed to be built by now-defunct Mainzeal which had planned to tenant the remaining two floors. It had been designed by architect firm Warren and Mahoney for the family, based on glass facades that were to be sourced by a Chinese glass factory owned by Mainzeal. It was going to double as a marketing tool for Mainzeal to show off the post-tension timber technology through the glass facade, he said. The timber building fully encased in glass will instead be a statement of innovation for Skope Industries, Stewart said. Warren and Mahoney were adjusting the design so it could be built with different suppliers. Stewart hoped Skope engineers could partner with long-time supplier Metro GlassTech to find "a clever way" to solve the problems a building completely encased in glass would pose, as he wanted to eschew louvre temperature and sunlight controllers. He hoped to start building as soon as possible.
