The Performing Arts Precinct, as an Anchor Project within the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan, has a vital role to play in attracting economic activity and investment, drawing crowds back into the Central city and becoming a real hub for people. Along with the performing arts more generally, it will also be pivotal in creating a unique cultural identity for Christchurch.
In developing the Performing Arts Precinct, our vision is:
“…to create a strong cultural heart for Christchurch and positively contribute to the revival of our Central City in partnership with the private sector and the performing arts sector. What we create on the site for the Performing Arts Precinct should be an integrated urban experience that supports the performing arts and creative production through custom-made facilities and complementary uses. It is an active and productive part of the city, a civic space for Cantabrians and visitors”.
Christchurch City Council (Council), in partnership with The Court Theatre are planning to deliver a new home for the Court Theatre in the Performing Arts Precinct (PAP). The PAP is defined as the site anchored by The Piano (north east), Isaac Theatre Royal (south east), corner Colombo / Gloucester south west) and the Crowne Plaza Hotel (north east).
The Court Theatre’s activities are expected to add to the current demands for off street public parking in the immediate vicinity of the PAP. Council is therefore seeking proposals for a suitably designed parking building or buildings in or near to the PAP that will satisfy the following existing and anticipated public parking demands:
Existing demands associated with the Isaac Theatre Royal, Tūranga (Central Library), the Piano and to some extent, the Town Hall;
Anticipated demands associated with Te Pae (the new Convention Centre) - which is expected to open in October 2020, and the new Court Theatre.
