A large concrete pour was taking place on this site yesterday in front on the carpark. Does anyone know if the proposed building on this site has planning permission yet?

Re: Official CBD Crane Counter Thread - 11

How about something like this set to music on the quarter hour like they do in Dubai? I've seen these fountain displays a few times there and found them amazing. It was a real tourist attraction and something interesting for diners at cafes and restaurants set around the lake. I'm sure it would be a...

We recently ate at TGIF's in Dubai and whilst it had a fantastic view of the Burj Khalifa, was horrified to find that they didn't serve alcohol. Hope this was just a Dubai thing!

Looks like some action on this site at last. An electrical substation thingy that was left here after the main building was demolished has now been removed, and it appears as though a site office was being trucked in this morning (in two halves) and placed on site.

On my morning stroll this morning I noticed that the empty garden furniture shop on this site was being demolished by All State Demolition. A giant excavator was attacking the back of the shop from the vacant lot next door.
