The Terrace is the first major rebuild project in the Christchurch CBD and promises to combine excellent global urban design within an iconic location. As a vibrant, living neighbourhood, this mixed-use development will integrate studios, office space, a boutique hotel and substantial car parking to support a range of carefully curated and complimentary retailers and hospitality providers. Once completed, the Terrace will encompass nine buildings, six laneways, a promenade and bridges connecting different elements of the development, all spanning from the street face into a sunny inner courtyard. The building façades fronting these areas are designed to create lively connecting spaces that express a variety of unique characters.
The site’s location adjacent to the Avon River will be enhanced through considered use of views, materials and waterflow, seamlessly integrating the development into its local surroundings.
The masterplan’s overall vision is to transcend the world of office parks and urban malls to create a home and heart for the city, a place for people to come together that fosters excellence and encourages visitors to return again and again.
