Isn’t it going to be horrible in the winter?

Probably nicer than the pre-quake city was – there are still likely to be covered walk ways around shops and buildings on the elevated level. Chch is actually pretty sunny in the winter and it will be a lot lighter in the elevated level than the current city.

Would be quite nice to not have high rises shading some of the nicest parts of the city (eg New Regent St) and there are lots of opportunities for creative wind breaks to be developed in the elevated garden areas too.
