Here's another time lapse video from Bernard showing the site between the 12th and 19th of Feburary. Night time footage is a lot clearer now due to a new camera.

Seeing lots of vertical structures going up in the pit
Here's a nice update from Bernard from the beginning of the week. The amount of structures that have gone up inside the pit is huge compared to what was in there last week!

Time lapse of the site between 5th and 12th February 2016
Here's another time lapse video from Bernard showing the site between the 5th and 12th of Feburary. I noticed that there are quite bright lights on during the night now, guess that's to allow work to continue over night.

Hotel lift core a level higher and excavators are nowhere in sight
The hotel lift core is growing taller and taller. It will soon be poking out the top of the pit. The other lift cores will surely follow suit.

Here's another time lapse from Bernard showing the pour for the Basement 6 slab in the North-West corner, and the pour of the residential tower foundation.

Peek inside the site and more concrete is pumping
Here are a couple of updates from Geoff and Bernard and myself. First Geoff was kind enough to send in some photos from inside the site, have a look it's good to get a perspective from the inside.

There's vertical movement on the hotel lift core and lots of concrete being poured
Lots of updates this week. Also starting this week I am going to be trying to consolidate updates more rather than posting daily statuses. Thanks to Bernard for the updates and all the photos!

A flood of updates this week, including DA changes to the site
There 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.

Work is back on after the Australia Day long weekend
I've got this update from Bernard, looks like the progress is nice and steady at the site. Good to see workers back in action after a 4 day long weekend!
24-Jan-2016
Concrete, concrete everywhere
Just as predicted lots of concrete was poured in since the last update. The site is really starting to transform now from an excavation to a full blown construction.

Residential tower lift core concrete slab being poured in
The concrete slab around the residential tower has finally started to be poured in place. At a distance it doesn't look like a huge area, but zooming in you can see how deep some of the parts actually are and that will all require filling in.
20-Jan-2016
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.
20-Jan-2016
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.
17-Jan-2016
More concrete being poured in
I'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.

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...

Close up of the W Hotel tower lift core scaffold
I've had Bernard, one of the readers, send in a picture this morning. It's a close-up of the lift core scaffold for the hotel building at 300 George Street. It looks just about ready to put on some height.

More time lapse footage of the demolition and excavation
I've had one of the readers, Rick, send in these time lapse videos that he's put together. The first one shows the final stages of the demolition and the second one shows the entire excavation compressed down to 4 minutes of footage.
15-Dec-2015
More of the lift shafts are starting to pop up
I'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!

Footage of the controlled detonation at 300 George Street
The previous post suggested that there would be a controlled detonation taking place some time at the 300 George site, well it finally happened over the weekend. I had a number of people send in footage of the detonation. Check it out.

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.

A real look inside the demolition
I've had an anonymous submission of these photos. They show the demolition as it is now from inside the site. Even though I do not encourage sneaking into the site, these photos look amazing, thanks and hope others enjoy them too. Remember: safety first please :)

Inside 300 George Street demolition site
A link to these photos was shared on my Facebook page so I got in touch with Abandoned Brisbane (Urban Exploration) and asked them if I could host some of the photos they took on this blog, they agreed. These are some photos from the 300 George Street (Supreme Court) demolition site. For the full album, go to the Abandoned Brisbane Facebook page.
