The Westpac building in Cashel St
The 14-storey Westpac building in Cashel St was last year approved for demolition after it sustained major damage in the earthquakes.Demolition work continues on a central Christchurch landmark.
Now, like so many other Christchurch buildings, only a shell remains.
The hexagonal office tower was built at a cost of $6.4 million for the Canterbury Savings Bank (later Trust Bank) in early 1983 and originally included a ground-floor shopping arcade.
The building has changed hands several times. At the time of the February 2011 quake it was owned by Miles Middleton, of Christchurch.
