SOL Square

His Lordship's Lane
Christchurch, Canterbury
An entertainment precinct with bars, cafes, and restaurants was developed in an area of old warehouses. "SOL" stands for South of Lichfield.

Property developer, Dave Henderson, who is imbued with the ideas of "New Urbanism" which include the concept of mixed use with retail and high density living, was behind the development.

Unsurprisingly the development, based as it was on unreinforced brick buildings, was a victim of the Christchurch earthquakes. However its success based on lanes penetrating city blocks providing places for people, has contributed to the adoption of this idea in the plans for rebuilding central Christchurch.
