From the Warren & Mahoney website:

COMPLETION
2027

Reinstating the Anglican Cathedral for the people of Christchurch and future generations is a unique opportunity, and a symbol of hope and confidence restored.

The devastating earthquakes of 2011 caused significant damage to the Cathedral. The West fašade facing the Square collapsed, the tower was badly damaged and collapsed, and major damage occurred elsewhere across the building.

Warren and Mahoney has been selected as lead architects to reinstate the Cathedral in partnership with Snohetta Architects. A sub-consultant team consisting of heritage architects Salmond Reed, Powell Fenwick, Marshall Day and Boffa Miskell will be working closely with Holmes engineers on this project.

The main Cathedral will retain its appearance and many heritage features, but it will be safer, more flexible and comfortable, and better equipped for future worship, civic, social, community and hospitality events. Consideration is also being made for base isolation of the Cathedral and the construction of a new Visitors Centre and ancillary buildings.

Planning and preparation is underway ahead of physical work starting in early 2020.

Christchurch Bishop 'thrilled' by Royal donation for cathedral reinstatement


Quote:
Charles, who spent the day meeting and greeting locals with his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has made a "substantial" donation to the damaged Christ Church Cathedral. The prince accepted a request to be royal patron of the cathedral reinstatement, but the size of his cash donation remains under wraps for now. Bishop Peter Carrell said they were "thrilled" at the "substantial donation" and the royal patronage would boost the multimillion-dollar project.

I just can't figure out whether substantial means $5000 or $50,000,000. But I suspect it's much closer to the former.

Hopefully they can get approval quickly so not to delay the restoration further.

I'm not holding my breath. Every single other date that's come out of someones mouth to do with this project has been years off the mark.
