March 2018 Updates

March had a few interesting developments. The North Quay side crane was removed from the W Hotel part of the construction site. That stretch of the road was closed for the duration of this operation.

Which lasted into the night too.

Then there was the PR failure on the W Hotel site announcing that the hotel was opening on the 15th of March. Of course this didn't happen.

I had an earlier post about this which I was contacted about by Multiplex. They were not happy with what was written, so in good faith I took it down until they provided further information to clarify the dates. After several initial emails going back and forth Multiplex agreed to provide a statement but then went completely silent. After several attempts to reach back out to them, all my emails went ignored and unanswered. So…I have nothing further to add here as I can only go on what information I see online and what I can see happening at the site as a casual observer.

February 2018 Updates

February's update isn't as big as January. Overall the most visible progress has been made on the W Hotel tower. The curved glass side is almost fully sealed in and all the decorative cladding is almost across the whole building. There is a huge way to go until it's complete though!

There's been a fair amount of night time work going on too…

It's a regular sight now to see work going on after 5pm on the lower levels…

January 2018 Updates

Happy New Year! Welcome to the first update from 300 George Street for 2018. There was quite a big break on site around Christmas and New Year but once work was back on, lots of developments happened. Lets see some photos from the site and surrounds.

First I have to include some fireworks from 2017/18 New Year's Eve. The weather was not the best that night and smoke hung around so it was hard to take decent photos, but here are a few snaps…

December 2017 updates

This is the first monthly update and a new format for each post. I've taken a bunch of photos from around the site during the month and Bernard has taken his usual high rise photos looking down on the site. There's a more detailed update from Bernard below too.

The most notable changes around the site have been the addition of cladding around the bottom of the hotel tower and the start of the hotel crown being put together. I've also noticed that the retail levels are being kitted out with escalators, the balconies have glass railings in place and there appears to be lots of work going on on the inside of the building.

Onto the photos…
