The demolition of the well-known landmark started on Monday - five years since the police last used the 1970s building.
Council urban design head Carolyn Ingles said police decided not to renew the kiosk's lease when the central police station was opened.
"The building actually started out in the 1970s as the Christchurch Transport Board Bus Kiosk.
"But in 1989, when the transport board wound up due to local government amalgamation, it was occupied by police and community volunteers and became the police kiosk."
