Elevated Garden City – the idea The opportunity The 2010-11 Canterbury earthquakes are an opportunity to create something special in Christchurch. Imagine a garden city where we took the Manhattan rooftop garden to whole new level. Given that most people in the CBD will not want to live and work in high rises, then this new set of low rise buildings give Christchurch the opportunity to build an elevated garden/walkway space that could become one of the world’s iconic cities. Instead of the roofs being wasted space it would be possible to make the space useful and linked with walk/cycle ways. You could walk around the CBD without ever crossing a road. Visitors landing in our fair city would look down on roofs of pure green. With new sustainable, energy-conscious buildings we would become the greenest city in New Zealand inside and outside. The roof space could be used for: Parks Cafes/Bars Shop fronts Office entrances Playgrounds Court yards Sports areas Iconic wooden bridge designs Slopes from other public spaces could go up the elevated gardens Not all space has to be public could be office BBQareas etc Taller buildings that look out over the gardens Bird sanctuary – (no rats or cats) Native forest – Riccarton park (maybe turn Latimer square into this?) Bike hire scheme Lots of other creative things How it will work from a planning point of view Every new building has to have half (or 1/3 or 2/3) of the second or third floor dedicated as open space The council will create a network of linked walk/cycleways connecting the second or third floor roof spaces This will be a relatively simple set of rules that would allow building owners/architects lots of flexibility and creative options. Could start small in the centre initially but could grow long term to take in all 4 avenues. Advantages Relatively low cost way to create a city that could become an iconic world destinations for tourists and creative people Every building has an extra elevated street frontage Ability to do something a bit different with each property depending on if it is housing, office, cafe, retail etc – creative options for all buildings. There will be vastly more useful space in CBD not just dead roof space! Can still use relatively inexpensive building techniques but create something dramatically different and unique when linked together Easy to get started and can expand over time People will be able to walk and bike around without cars in an easy, safe way – will probably be the preferred way to get around town on short journeys Building interfaces will be standardized sothe bridges can be relatively inexpensive – only foot and bike traffic Still has possibility for good urban density – backyard on roof as the concept expands to the out skirts of four avenues Very simple set of planning rules that still allows lots of room for creativity but ties the city together in a distinctive iconic way Concept images 375 Responses to Elevated Garden City – the idea ← Older Comments Marky says: June 21, 2012 at 2:57 pm you fertilize the gardens… Marky says: June 21, 2012 at 2:56 pm Rebecca, it sounds like you would rather live in a small country town/village. Easy parking is not why the malls are popular – its the car free “pretend streets” that bring in the people (malls are popular all round the world – even without parking) Marky says: June 21, 2012 at 2:51 pm If you can build a 6 storey structure which will handle a few tonnes of earth, you can build a 7 storey building that wont support it for less.. Its a cool idea, and it would be awesome to see a couple of buildings like this (maybe council owned), but not a whole town. Marky says: June 21, 2012 at 2:43 pm The prior fault in the city was that you couldnt walk around it without crossing roads and walking round cars – The pretend street in the shopping malls has no cars and allows you to wander about in a daze, zig zagging between shops. The old Christchurch had been modified to give cars priority, thats why it wasn’t popular to go shopping in there. All we need to do is have a narrow street in the middle for mobility scooters and bikes + a large are for people to walk down the streets and some trees. parking should be outside the city (it works well when its outside the malls). Marky says: June 21, 2012 at 2:35 pm According to the map no houses in Heathcote valley are wet until 3m sea level rise, most of the houses are fine until 9 or 13m… Ferrymead park would be wet tho.. Peter says: June 18, 2012 at 8:50 pm I’m 16 and I think this idea is awesome and would make Christchurch a place where I want to live as an adult. Julian says: May 2, 2012 at 11:29 am Hi Grace, the simplified buildings in the visualization images are obviously not the final design that developers might use, they are really just to help illustrate the idea. Given the increased building code levels all across Christchurch post-quake of course these buildings, and the bridges, are going to have to be built up to code. Everyone in Christchurch would love to see the rebuild moving faster, and we are sure that individual land & building owners are all keen to make some progress, but the insurance payout process, and cleanup and demolition are such monumental tasks so I feel that we just all need to be patient, good things take time, and hopefully the new 21st century Christchurch will be a great thing, and a great place to live, work and play. Joshua says: May 2, 2012 at 10:51 am In my complete and honest opinion: The idea of an “Elevated Garden City” is brilliant. It is an idea I have never previously heard of and would give Christchurch a new and unique image that was Christchurch’s alone. However; this proposal does incite many problems; including the possibility of the ground level streets falling to disuse. This problem could of course be remedied by having no shop entrances available via the raised green streets and only having the entrances on the ground level streets. This would encourage people to use a combination of the two street levels; as the raised green level offers a faster way to traverse the city and the ground level offers the retail ventures that the draft plan offers to those entering the CBD. Grace says: March 24, 2012 at 9:07 am And are these walk ways between buildings going to handle another 7.0? Are these buildings going to be QUAKE PROOF or just pretty..:/ I think Christchurch people like the idea of the garden roof top but most of us are worried more about a building falling down on our heads or a random walk way doing the same. I’d like to see more on how they are going to make the buildings safer AND...
