...Next to the market complex, the Yee family has built foundations for their new building with three shops on Cashel St and another three facing a rear laneway, plus two upper floors of offices. It is due for completion in April.

The project will reinstate the three-storey building the family lost in the earthquakes, which previously housed Cafe Bleu and the Zetland Tavern.

...A Yee family spokesman said they had not begun leasing their building, but were encouraged by progress in the area.

They wanted retailers rather than hospitality businesses, he said, as they felt the hospitality market was saturated. Upstairs they would target professionals such as accountants and lawyers, he said.

Cladding will probably be going up pretty soon anyway, but this is the render for the back view of this development along the laneway which connects the Lichfield Street carpark to the Riverside Market development. Pretty cool to have the backside of buildings having active frontages onto laneways - complete contrast to pre-quake Christchurch and many other cities:
