Plans for a $15 million central city art museum, a hospitality outlet in Lyttelton and a new name for the Convention Centre were all revealed yesterday.
The Ravenscar Trust and Canterbury Museum released the final design of the delayed Ravenscar House, which will start being built on Rolleston Ave in October.
Built using earthquake rubble from Jim and Susan Wakefield’s original Ravenscar House in Scarborough and the Arts Centre, it will be gifted to Canterbury Museum when complete in 2020.
Meanwhile, Lyttelton Port Company has received strong interest to tenant Te Ana Marina’s Woolstore development.
Knight Frank’s Craig Edwards said the renovated building would become a hospitality hub, possibly for a brewery, the seafood industry and a restaurant.
The $475 million Convention Centre will be called Te Pae, which means gathering space.
Otakaro spent $30,000 developing the name, back story, logo, and design work for the brand. It will open in 2020.
