The residential area to the west of the inner city has some of the oldest surviving dwellings in central Christchurch. A number of the larger homes were designed by prominent Christchurch architects in a diversity of architectural styles. Over the years, the area has been home to academics, musicians, artists and well-known Canterbury identities. An intact group of modest late Victorian villas stand at 15-23 Worcester Boulevard. A number of good examples of Art Deco apartment blocks can also be found in this area.
