John Key: Christchurch CBD rebuild blueprint unveiled

The much-anticipated blueprint includes 12 key sites for major facilities, including a new 2000-capacity convention centre at a "postcard location" by the river, a huge aquatic and indoor sports facility, revitalised square with a new central library, and Ngai Tahu cultural centre. Leafy, bright "college-campus style" open space will form the compact centre of a rebuilt Garden City, designed to "solve the problem of too much land, not enough demand".
