“A city council report said it was initially estimated $100,000 would be needed to move the building but more detailed planning has revealed it would cost $225,000.”
“City council staff told councillors there would be time delays and a financial impact on the St Albans rebuild if the funding was not granted.”

“The Lions Clubs International Foundation originally provided the building as a temporary replacement for the earthquake-damaged St Albans community centre, but it gave the go ahead for the building to be moved from Colombo Street to MacFarlane Park.”
“The new facility should be ready for use as the MacFarlane Park Community Centre by the end of June.
The 125sq m building will be managed by the Shirley Community Trust.”

Riccarton Community Centre
– December 2014
“The Riccarton Community Centre in Clarence Street has always been part of the vibrant community life in Riccarton. Situated near the Westfield Mall and opposite the Windmill Centre, it is a significant facility to its local community.
The Council has approved building a new Community Centre due, in part, to the age of the current facility.
In December 2014, the Council decided to sell off a portion of the land to fund the building of the new Community Centre on the remaining portion of land.”

“Progress on Riccarton Community Centre development. The Council owns a 4683 square metre site at 199 Clarence Street, Riccarton, of which 2703 square metres will be sold for $3.3 million (plus GST) to Riccarton Shopping Centre (1997) Limited (trading as Westfield Riccarton). The proceeds will go towards the creation of a new Riccarton Community Centre on the part of the site retained by the Council.”

“The former Riccarton Community Centre sustained extensive damage in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. Although part of the centre, including that occupied by the Riccarton Service Centre, was able to be opened, the majority of the centre which was used by the community received a DEE assessment of less than 5%. It was established that the best option was to build a new centre rather than repair the existing centre. This is to be funded by the sale of part of the existing centre footprint, topped up with $1m. The footprint (which contains the existing centre) was sold in 2016 to Westfields. Following a long process, the Community Board signed off on a Design Concept in December 2016. Westfields have agreed to lease back space for the Service Centre in the interim until the new Community Centre is built.”

“Aspects will include sufficient growth capacity, and accommodate both community facilities and staff offices. This includes storage and offices for community workers. Construction will start early next year and take 12-15 months to complete.
Following an enquiry by Riccarton Community Hub, Lester Wolfreys, Head of community support, governance and partnerships at the Council, says with an amended design now preferred for the facility, the Council is targeting a completion date of Christmas 2019.”

“Designs are being finalised for a two-storey community centre set to open in Riccarton next year. The new centre in Clarence Street will replace the earthquake-damaged building on the former Council site next door. The Council opted to sell part of the site to fund the new centre.
‘Planning is well under way for this much needed hub to service the needs of the local community,’ Christchurch City Council’s Capital Delivery Community Manager, Darren Moses, says.
‘Our new 760-square-metre, two-level centre will fill a post-earthquake gap in providing multiple meeting and activity spaces, along with a much needed base for Riccarton service staff.
‘A large hall, customer service area and kitchen will be complemented by multiple on-site car parks.”
