THE LATIMER - FIRST MAJOR CHCH REBUILD

 

Christchurch developers are focused on rebuilding the CBD as soon as possible, with the first major rebuild due to start January 2012. The Latimer Hotel on Gloucester St suffered significant earthquake damage in February 2011 and has since been demolished to make way for a new five-storey hotel complex. See WOR listing J131609 for further details. Developer Richard Peebles currently has plans to build on several sites within the CBD, including a three-storey office and retail building on site of the former Manchester Courts (J125222), and the team at Harcourts Grenadier is hoping that construction of their $6 million head office on Madras St will start in the new year (J132025).
