Gate-Way BuildingINTEGRATED POLITICAL & ADMINISTRATIVE CENTRE Being the Gateway Building, the design of the TRUNG TÂM HÀNH CHÍNH VÀ CHÍNH TRỊ TẬP TRUNG Political and Administrative Centre is to project a “sturdy” and “solid” image, hence the choice of Granite Stone Wall and Glass Curtain Walling to reflect the aspirations of the administration to lead the people and at the same time to reflect a sense of openness and approachability to the people. The main reception hall, meeting rooms, the party secretary office and offices for the Chairman of the People’s Committee and People’s Council are situated at the bridge linking the two towers, offering unobstructed view towards the central park and the cultural centre. The accessibility of the Political and Administrative Centre can be divided into VIP access and normal staff access. The VIP drop-off, which is located at the top level of the carpark, provides a panoramic view of the Peoples’ Plaza and the surrounding buildings. The carpark entrance for the staff is located at a level below VIP drop-off. For security considerations, both the VIP and Staff access lobby are separated from the public access and the Political and Administrative Centre can be locked up after working hours and the plazas can still be accessible to the public at night.

The company has maintained a strong presence in the city and supports a number of community initiatives. In the 1850s New Zealand was a new colony and little was produced in the way of fine clothing. Many in the young settlement longed for the quality goods they purchased in the 'motherland' of England. In 1854 Esther and David Clarkson saw an opportunity and set up a small Drapery in their Cashel Street cottage in Christchurch. Nine years later the retail business passed to William Pratt and in 1872 it was purchased by John Ballantyne, a retailer originally from Scotland. So began the Ballantyne legacy of fine retail, which six generations later continues to flourish under the Ballantyne name as a privately owned family company.Ballantynes Department Store, Christchurch New Zealand is the largest department store inthe country.
