Central Christchurch’s biggest retail precinct development yet – The Crossing – opens this week.

The $140 million complex is made up of shops and hospitality outlets, plus offices and a car parking building. It has been built in new and restored heritage buildings around a series of laneways and air bridges.

The Crossing has been developed by property investor Philip Carter on a one-hectare block bordered by Cashel, Colombo, High and Lichfield streets.

Eleven tenants will open on the site in the next few days, with others to follow in the next few weeks. A second stage, due to open early next year, will link to Ballantynes department store by an existing air bridge.
