New building approved for Christchurch city hotel site sitting vacant for almost a decade
After sitting vacant for almost a decade, the former Holiday Inn site in central Christchurch is to get a new building.
The 14-storey Holiday Inn on the corner of Cashel and High streets, and an adjoining lower building facing High St, were both demolished in late 2012 because of earthquake damage.
The property’s owner, the Carter Group, has now received resource consent to rebuild.
The new building will have four storeys with shops at street level, an entry lobby leading to three levels of offices above, and an underground car park. It will be 18.5 metres high.
