Navigation for Spectrum

Old brick backstreet buildings and factory alleyways in Christchurch are getting a makeover by a developer with a passion for urban design.

Dave Henderson is best known for his battle with the IRD, and as the subject of the new South Pacific Pictures release We're Here to Help but his latest passion is for sustainable urban renewal.

Spectrum joins the garrulous and ebullient developer for a tour of one of his latest projects and to meet the people who are helping to transform this inner city back street area South of Lichfield into the hippest place in town.
