There is a lot of activity behind the old bakery facade. Several Cat excavators and cranes working today.

The old Balfours factory had plenty of cellars and underground work areas and these are all exposed now. It's turning into a rather large hole. Once the cellars and existing concrete have gone they will get on with the foundations, which will be quite extensive for this structure.

Probably a couple of months at least until we see a crane go up. Will be a nice building.

May have to amend the crane timing forward. There was lots of large circular foundation reinforcing steel being delivered and the pile drills operating. The facade located on the street front hides a lot of what is happening so maybe the crane will be on site quicker than I expected.

Maybe they could have two - that would be nice.

Sounds good professor. This one will have a big impact on that end of town. Urban Construct really do move quickly.

I wonder when the next release will occur, maybe when the market improves a bit with some expected interest rate cuts. As far as we know they are still aiming at the Balfours site for the next release I think.

I noticed a few weeks back their signage went up over parts of the old bus station but I think that was more to do with vandalism on the site and it will be a while until we see any of the proposed towers going up there. It would be great to see something happen to the old bus station soon though with some new apartments, that site is a shocker.

Bit confused as to this one. It was lodged by Urban Consruct and appears to be on or around the old bus station site. But t's offices?

This one is going nuts. The amount of workers on the site is amazing for so early in the project. Some pics taken today (sorry they are small, taken on the work camera :D ):

Every single time I see the title of this thread, I am confused by 'Safe Work Practices' of Altitude that are apparently so fascinating that they need their own topic. :wink:

OHS&W regulations at work be damned!

This was an awesome venue during the Fringe. As great as the development is, it's a shame we lost the venue.

Sitre has had major concrete pour for the foundation and is 95% excavated. Suprised that Gallery crane is coming down. Maybe gonna be moved 25m over?

Well I wouldnt be surprised in your spot on about the crane moving to this rather than to Hindmarsh Sq

That would seem the logical move, but our resident crane man Alkai assures us Hindmarsh is the go.

I've just got a little dissappointed with this one because it won't be as 'tall' as I thought, clearly misdecieved by the renders. This will only rise about 2 metres taller than the new SA Water building which by comparision isn't that big, and with their bulk, they'll appear even smaller so. But the fact that it is located away from most high-rise clusters should bring out the height a bit more.

I'm still hoping that there'll be some variation across all the towers, otherwise it would look very 'commie block'.
