These buildings are Block 1 and 4. There is a fair bit of information including drawings and plans re these blocks on the Department of Planning Major Projects (search at http://majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au/)

There is a recent approval of a modification (in Feb 2012) relating to the "Tri- generation Plant". This will involve work underground beneath the heritage Brewery buildings and also underneath Blocks 1 and 4 (north and west of the Brewery buildings). Seems that work has to be completed first.

Also I think the display center on Broadway is sitting where parts of block 1 and 4 will eventually be?

Your right about the display centre being on the sites of block one and four.

I think they should open up MOS Burger here! They have opened a store in Brisbane and they have stores all over Asia. This is the perfect place given the high proportion of Asian students.

There's plenty of Asian-esque food outlets that can open - many that would be new to the area. This includes Mos Burger as well as ZenQ and Hazel Tea (very popular in Brisbane, has franchise agreements)

You got that shot flying in? Awesome!

I'm starting to pick up locations in the eastern suburbs having toured them a bit in the past few weeks. For instance in that pic I can make out Kings Cross, Potts Point, Darlinghurst. Starting to feel more like a 'local'

Fantastic shot Cul. Thanks so much for that.

I've driven down to Railway Square/Broadway a couple of times over the past week. This project has a real presence. It is MASSIVE! Very exciting to see this unfold bit by bit. It's going to change the South.

I agree with Burchmore - there is another 19-20 floors in the core to go until it reaches full height of 116 metres.

A couple of photo's from the weekend. Established trees and paving going into the park, and a fourth lift core about to show itself in the massive hole to the south.
