300 George Street Blogumentary
George Street closed off on the weekend with a mobile craneI had Elise send these photos showing George Street closed off on Sunday. There's a mobile crane blocking most of the road and it appears that sections of a new crane are being lifted up. The new crane is assembled onsite already.
Updates between 25th of July and 29th of JulyQuite a big update for the past week from Bernard. Check out how high the NW crane reaches now in the pictures for the 28th of July. It's still not over the height of the 'Quay Central' building but is not far off!
Time lapse of the site between 19th and 26th February 2016Here's another time lapse video from Bernard showing the site between the 19th and 26th of Feburary. This video has footage of the fourth crane being assembled. Its easy to miss but if you look at around the 0:33 mark you will see it, it's fully assembled by the 0:45 mark.
The fourth crane has been assembled on siteSome great developments last week. The fourth crane is now assembled and a service elevator has been put up next to the hotel lift core. The progress has really accelerated. Check out more detailed updates from Bernard below...
A flood of updates this week, including DA changes to the siteThere has been a flood of updates towards the end of the week with photos and information sent in by long time readers Geoff, Bernard and Steve. One of the things I missed earlier this month is that there is a Slight Update for 300 George Street & W Hotel DA. On the most part it looks like the number of larger units was decreased in favour of two bedroom apartments. Additional roofing has been added and car parking spaces have been increased.
More concrete being poured inI've got another update from Bernard a couple of days ago but didn't have time to put it up until now. You can definitely see the progress in this new photo that he's sent in. There are new floor slabs that have been poured in place and more.
More of the lift shafts are starting to pop upI've received quite a detailed update from Bernard, a reader who has contributed in the past. Lots of work is going ahead at the site. It's great to see the site from this vantage point, really puts it into perspective. Many thanks for this contribution!
Third crane assembled on site nowI've noticed this Saturday that more crane parts were delivered to the site. The road wasn't blocked off like the previous two times, that's because this crane was assembled in the center of the site.
Night time works with a mobile crane, North Quay blocked offNot sure what was going on exactly last night, but there was a mobile crane blocking off North Quay. I was hoping it would be assembling a new crane onsite, but sadly that was not the case. For a long time the mobile crane just stood there with lights off all around, it was gone by 3am.
