When the colossal labyrinth of scaffolding comes down at Christ Church Cathedral later this year, a 20-year, $20-million-plus renovation will finally be complete. Projects have included everything from landscaping to a new pipe organ, but the most visible upgrade of all came last: the new roof. “Every great city has a great cathedral,” says Peter Elliott, dean and rector of the church. And every great cathedral, presumably, needs a great roof.The Holy TrinityIn addition to the new roof, this latest round of renovations includes a new kitchen and bell tower, which should be up by fall.
