Linear Corridor

Christchurch Central Recovery Plan: The Blueprint Plan (A3 versi

[D5 2013]

Why should the Transportation be centralised or even the CCDU’s proposed Innovation Precinct or Retail Precinct? In our proposal we question the notion of precincts and mono-zoning, and develop an alternative scheme where the Transportation Hub, Innovation Precinct, Retail Precinct are combined with Office and Housing to create an active Linear Corridor. Breaking away from notion of centralisation, and threading these diverse programs along High Street, Cathedral Square and Victoria Street, known as the entrances and exits of the City Center, the Linear Corridor creates an active backbone that the rest of the city can plug into through the street network.
