July 2018 Updates

There has been some solid, visible progress on the residential tower in July. The W Hotel is old news now and the commercial tower is climbing higher and higher. It's interesting to see that the commercial tower windows are being placed as it is built up, unlike what happened with W Hotel where windows were installed significantly later. There was a police presence on the site one of the days too, though I am not sure why.

Here's an update from a source on site…
- Residential Tower is under construction
- 82 level residential tower with 2 pools and recreational areas.
- The completion is planned in October 2021.
- There are significant challenges in relation to aviation safety, but there is a plan in place for this.
- The sales suite is being constructed at the moment and is located in the retail tenancy on level 1 and 2 on the corner of George and Adelaide (within the retail tenancy).
- It is a whole building jump lending to faster construction.
