Another update from Bernard for the past week, including some ground level photos this time too.

10 July -
- reinforcing being laid SW side of hotel, formwork being completed on N
- '23′ painted on hotel core just below the climbing formwork. I presume this is the floor number, but haven't checked the dwgs
- formwork going up for slab to S of commercial core
- forms being placed for more columns SW of res core


12 July -
- SW slab poured on hotel, reinforcing looks ready for N slab
- formwork has almost completely filled in commercial tower S of core
- scaffolding around res tower nearly complete, looks like all the columns have been poured
- scaffolding being removed from the S side of the podium area. This is very visible from street level (didn't get a pic though)


13 July -
From the intersections of George Street with Ann & Adelaide Streets

14 July -
- progress continuing on the hotel tower
- it looks like glazing has been installed to the same height on both the N and SW facades (four floors above the thick slab)
- the jacking formwork on the commercial core has been partially disassembled, for some reason
