300 George Street Blogumentary
Google Maps high resolution images now onlineGoogle 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 reflects the site construction nowI'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 completedHere'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.
Another angle on the digI'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 progressI'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 inHad 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 progressI'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 floodingThanks 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.
Dig site from aboveOne 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 digOne 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.
Look at the demolition from the topThanks 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.
Some view from the BCC buildingThis 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 aboveThis 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!
