The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (Cera) has released a time-lapse video of central Christchurch taken between February 1, 2012, and January 31, 2013.

Shot from the roof of the HSBC Tower in Worcester Blvd, the two-minute video depicts changes to the central-city landscape towards Cathedral Square.

The camera is focused on the demolition of the Clarendon Tower, with a crane slowly dismantling the 17-storey building.

Other demolitions can be seen in the far background, including the Holiday Inn, the Westpac building and the Hotel Grand Chancellor.

Because of equipment issues, there was a short period where the camera did not film, Cera said.
