Former Teacher’s Training College / Peterborough Centre

This Collegiate Gothic complex (1927−1930) was built as the Christchurch Teachers College. Among the well-known NZers who trained at the Peterborough Street site are former Prime Ministers, Bill Rowling and Jenny Shipley, as well as artists Rata Lovell-Smith and Grahame Sydney. The complex was converted to apartments in the 1990s. The building’s future has recently been secured with its purchase by a new owner who intends to retain it with a new use. Earthquake damaged.
