The developer behind the $100 million Cashel Square office and retail precinct under way in Christchurch's City Mall has released new images of how it will look.

Lichfield Holdings, headed by Nick Hunt, has begun foundations for the first stage of his precinct between Cashel, Hereford and Colombo streets, next to Antony Gough's The Terrace development.

Cashel Square will cover almost half a city block.

It will feature buildings around a public square, a glass roofed atrium, and laneways running through to the City Mall and The Terrace.

Container mall Re:Start occupies part of the site and will move across the road soon to make way for stage two of Cashel Square to start in July.

The site previously housed properties including the Whitcoulls, Shades Arcade and Old Weekly Press sites.

Hunt said he had tenants for half the complex.

He is understood to have lined up government departments, a bank, and some major retailers.

Leasing advertising for the development describes "backlit vertical towers, colourful infill panels" and a "high arcade entrance to the large courtyard beyond".
