The much-anticipated plan for the rebuild of the Christchurch CBD has been released.

It includes 12 key sites for major facilities, including a new 2000-capacity convention centre at a "postcard location" by the Avon River, a huge aquatic and indoor sports facility, revitalised square with a new central library, and Ngai Tahu cultural centre.

Shops, restaurants, bars and cafes are expected to line the picturesque river's edge, as well as the sports stadiums, in a push to make the revitalised city "very much like Melbourne", according to Prime Minister John Key.

The blueprint will result in a low-rise city, with a maximum height limit on new buildings of 28m, or up to eight storeys, and will be divided into precincts of health, arts and entertainment, retail, as well as the justice and emergency sectors.
