A special 10 month long time lapse video of the construction
Here's a special time lapse video from Bernard showing the site over a long period - October 2015 to July 2016. It's equivalent of a frame every 20 minutes and limited to daytime only. Very cool!
Google Maps high resolution images now online
Google Maps has updated their map data to include very high resolution cloudless images of the entire Earth. The 300 George Street site is covered in it's full glory of course.
Google Maps updates it's satellite imagery again within two months of previous update
I've written earlier (2 months ago) that Google Maps reflects the site construction, well it looks like Google has updated it's satellite images again. You can see now that Google Maps shows an updated view of the construction site vs what it was earlier.
Google Maps reflects the site construction now
I've been checking Google Maps for 300 George Street every month or so to see when it will update to reflect that it's under construction and it's finally happened. Now the site image looks like a construction site from several weeks ago.
Floor slab around the hotel lift core completed
Here's another excellent update from Bernard. The floor slab around the hotel lift core is finished, this is where it looks like most of the progress has been made on the site.
More concrete, more crane sections, more progress
Thanks again to Bernard for sending this update in. The vantage point in this photo is really quite amazing and the progress is very visible from day to day now.
Time lapse of the site between December 15 and 18
Here's a nice time lapse from Bernard that shows the site between December 15th and 18th 2015.
Another amazing aerial shot of the site and an update on the construction
Here's another photo from Bernard, it's an update on the previous aerial shot he's sent in. Rather than me paraphrasing what he said, here's a nice summary directly from him...
A top down view of the second crane at the site
One of the readers, Simon, has sent this really cool photo in that shows another view of the second crane from the top looking down.
Another angle on the dig
I've had one of the readers, Kym, send this photo in. It shows an angle of the excavation that I don't usually get to see. It's amazing to think that there was a building standing here not that long ago.
A short video of the excavation progress
I've had Dani send these snaps and a video in today. It looks like the excavation is down at least 3 full levels, I'm guessing it's about half way done now.
Work rolls on as the fog rolls in
Had a nice view of fog rolling in over Mount Gravatt this past Saturday morning. The work at the site is keeping on, even in these early morning hours.
An update on the excavation progress
I've asked a previous contributor Geoff to take a couple of photos from up above of the excavation at the site. It's getting harder and harder to take photos from the ground now as the site is completely fenced off now.
Another aerial shot of the flooding
Thanks to Geoff, who has previously sent in photos of the site from above, here's another photo showing some of the flooding on site after the recent rains.
Look of flooding on site from above
I've asked a previous contributor Geoff to take another photo for me from above so we can see the flooding of the pit.
Dig site from above
One the the reader's Geoff, who has sent in photos before has shared the another photo. This one's of the dig site from up above.
A nice aerial shot of the dig
One of the readers, Geoff, has sent this photo in. Taken from across the road of the excavation site. Thanks Geoff! It's hard to imagine that there will be 3 buildings in this place.
Trucks lining up along North Quay to move the dirt out
There have been trucks lining up along North Quay waiting to move the dirt out. As one truck would pull out of the site, another one would take its place.
A concreted driveway has been built on the North Quay side
As the excavation is going on, there is some construction happening too. There has been a concreted driveway put in over the weekend on the North Quay side of the site. The leftmost lane was closed during this time.
Section of the site visible from the Riverside Expressway Cam
A section of the side (on the North Quay end) is now visible on the Riverside Expressway Cam. Check it out.
Look at the demolition from the top
Thanks to my wonderful friend working in the BCC building, I have more aerial view photos to share. Looks like the demolition has moved onto the right wing of the building, big rubbles of concrete are in the courtyard waiting to be cleared out.
More aerial photos of the demolition
I've got a friend working in the BCC building who took these photos for me. Enjoy!
Some view from the BCC building
This is exciting! I have a friend who works in the BCC building and so I've asked her to take some photos for me of the demolition below. Here's what I got. Enjoy!
A view from above
This is a special treat, one of the readers has sent this photo in that shows a view from up above the demolition site. I can't get this kind of vantage point from the street level or from my building, so here's what it looks like directly above. Thanks so much!
