Billions of construction dollars have been pumped into Christchurch since the devastating 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.
Nine years on, the rebuilt central city has emerged as the most modern in New Zealand. But there are still major gaps, most noticeably unfinished Crown anchor projects such as the metro sports facility, convention centre and a new stadium.
In a contentious opinion piece, travel writer Brook Sabin said instead of finding a world-class central city taking shape, the prevailing feeling was one of sadness.
What do you think? Is Christchurch sad and soulless or progressive and beautiful?

Our female tabby cat went missing on the morning of Sunday 6 October.
She three years old and is microchipped.
She has a black stripe starting at her shoulders going down the centre of her back, to the tip of her tail. Her tail is also quite long for her body.
She is a fairly timid cat and she is likely hiding under a house or in a shed.
Please if you live around the Richmond area (we on North Avon Road between Crystal and North Parade), could you check your sheds and garages.
There was a potential sighting around 17 and 19A Crystal Street and 12, 20 and 24 Petrie Street. If you live at these addresses please check in sheds, garages or under the house - otherwise call me and I am happy to come and check.
We really want her home.
