Wouldn't be surprised if the core rises later today or over the weekend.

Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

I believe this project is 100% developer financed, no loans at all.

I think we'll see some really quick movement here. Now that the core mounted putzmeister is in place, with a relatively small floor plate too things should really motor along here. Wouldn't be surprised once the podium is cleared we're looking at a 5-6 day floor cycle too.

Exciting times!

Sorry for no update last night, they finished the concrete, now a layer of something new... anyone got any ideas? Construction52.jpg Lightweight form work for the next level, at this rate they'll be pouring the next floor early next week. We should see some core movement very soon too. Great shots ...

Great shots!

The facade will make or break this one. Being such a simple design high quality glazing will make it's presence. If it's cheap high transparency glass, we'll have a tapestry of curtains for our tallest tower...

Fingers crossed!

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

When I was looking at the crane, I was unable to see a "climbing" section. Does this mean the crane is already at max height? something over 132m. I could count what looked like 12 sections, including the yellow base section, if each section is 6m then it has a way to go, if each section is 12m the...

Looks like a reconfiguration. I'm assuming the southern extension of the core is being removed.

Either this has topped out or the core is being reconfigured.

Yup, that's a concrete pump. Putzmeister I think. Wouldn't be surprised if there's two of these for this project.

Northern luffing crane must have penetrated the PANOPS limit when fully elevated. Would make sense with that crane being closer to the flight path.

What is being placed between the concrete gaps? And is there a finish/gloss to the concrete itself?
If you look closely there's glazing between the concrete panels. I also believe this natural texture is the final finish. Looks quite striking when done well, in my opinion.

Hopefully there'll be some articulation in the western wall soon, because there's a whole heap of solid concrete panelling appearing on the western facade as this rises...

Also interesting to note that on the western boundary they've gone from formed walls to prefabricated concrete walls. Wonder if that was due to the placement and integration of the carpark ramp?
