To confirm your worst fears, that's been gone for a while.
Most probably collected by louts, but also possibly loading vehicles -- several of the granite slabs along Bank Street have been seriously chipped, which indicates either tight manoeuvres or shit drivers.
It happens, just need to replace it and better protect it whilst it grows. Same thing happened a lot with drunken revellers after the Rundle Mall upgrade, now the trees there can support themselves without that issue.
I have emailed the city council about the tree and if they are replacing it soon. I will let everyone know if I get a response.

Worried about a tree? Seriously? Keep on track with the thread.

Windows now being installed on the western side. They look quite dark but maybe just because of the overcast day. Sorry, I didn't get a photo.

They're the only two reflecting the Intercontinental from that angle.

Seems obvious now... will be interesting to see how this looks when it’s complete and different panels are reflecting all different sources of light

The glass is highly reflective and looks amazing. I’ve added a second photo from today which helps show this. Sorry about the photos getting turned on their side.

Highly reflective and curvy. We need more of this in our city. They would look so good expensively contrasting against the beige brown boxes.

Here's a series of shots for your perusal!

There is a real sense of scale now. Currently up to floor 6.

The glass is highly reflective. Here, you can see the windows of the InterContinental in the reflection. It's a great effect.

Image

This looks like the possible new ARS entrance.

A close-up of the curved reflections.

As it appears from right next to ARS.

So there’s 6 levels to go. Not 2.

For some reason I thought it was to be eight levels. Typo corrected.
