Christchurch Justice and Emergency Services Precinct

May 8, 2017

The Christchurch Justice and Emergency Services Precinct is really coming along now with some decorative glass going up recently along the side of the building.

This initiative makes me feel that Christchurch will be one of the safer cities to live in within New Zealand (in fact it probably already is that due to the rebuild) – and when the Alpine Fault eventually goes Christchurch will be in an excellent position to provide support to its own citizens while also responding to emergencies in other parts of the South Island (most likely the West Coast). There’s been several articles recently about the risks of the Alpine Fault going – see http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/90364889/magnitude82-the-disaster-scenario-on-new-zealands-most-dangerous-fault for an example.

Here’s a video fly-over from the official website:

The Duncans Building is an historic row of 16 units on High Street. The two units at the far left have been restored by Joe and Nicky Arts (according to the sign on the door of the building). Another two units at the other end of the row are being restored by another owner. The remaining units are owned by the Crown. According to this article in the Press there are developers interested in restoring the rest of the units.

Located at 154 Worcester Street the Christchurch Club was established as a gentlemen’s club back in 1856. It’s been recently re-opened after earthquake repairs. The building is protected as a Category 1 Historic Place.
