Reducing the frequency of updates and content on this Blog

I've had quite a dilemma regarding this Blog for quite some time. I've not been focusing on it as much recently due to work and other projects, yet I want to keep it updated and alive at least until the construction at 300 George St is complete. So I've thought hard about it and decided to reduce the frequency of updates from a weekly to a monthly basis starting in December.

This decision will allow me to keep the Blog running but will free me up from the responsibility of frequent updates. I think this is fair both for you, the readers and myself.

I will also cease posting time lapse videos going forward. These videos were courtesy of Bernard and he continues to upload them to his YouTube channel. I would suggest anyone interested in these subscribes there.

The format will change slightly since all the updates for a month will be put together into the one post, but all the usual information will still be there.

I still have a bunch of content that I've not yet shared which I will endeavour to do over this week. Keep an eye out for that, it should be a few interesting posts.

I've opened up visitor posts on the Facebook Page so if you have updates regarding construction or the site in general, do share them there.

Thanks for reading!

Updates between 20th of November and 24th of November

Here are a few updates from Bernard for the past week.

21 November -
- hotel: L33 walls are up, last remnants of core formwork are gone. Cladding starting to be installed, starting at Ann St corner.
- office: lots of progress on the climbing formwork, scaffolding gone. Slab poured this morning in SW corner.

22 November -
- hotel: more cladding installed. Can no longer see what's happening on top of the tower.
- office: progress on climbing formwork. Reinforcing being laid for remainder of slab SE of core.
- formwork being placed for slab along Adelaide St frontage at ground level. This slab will be pretty thick, I think, as it's going to support a lane of the road in the future.
