13 June -
A wet day on the site…

14 June -
- formwork in place for walls on SW of hotel, with reo looking ready to go on N

15 June -
- N side of hotel tower has been poured this morning
- reinforcing still being laid around the res core
- some formwork walls going up between the podium area and the commercial core. This large rectangular area sits across the three large columns on lower levels, so perhaps a large load transfer​ beam


16 June -

- pouring the slab eat of the res core
