#Sydney: Genoa Tower (Bondi Jct)

I had to start a new thread..the old onee got deleted(?)

Anywho, the crane for the site is UP!!! also the crane is FRIGGIN massive, the tip looks easily 120m up! Its a Grocon crane, and is on the edge of the site, and for some reason they've jacked the thing up to full height alrady! and i dont think they've even gotten close to ground level w/ floors!

BTW

Genoa tower is a 56m Tower (18 stories) and on bronte rd. could anyone get a pic of the site? if you want a veiw from the rooftop of eastleauges, just go to the 8th level of eastleauges (this is the top office level) and go to an east leauges offfice and ask for Mark Peoples and ask to go to the roof to take some pics.

They dont want the tower to appear overshadowed by the Eastgate Towers, yet they want the rendering to show that Genoa is conveniently located near to shopping (i.e. Coles) - thus the towers are absent, but the shopping centre in the podium is there.

The strangely altered Nokia Tower in the background is supposed to give the impression of a busy, urban, trendy type of environment.

These artists' impressions really do give themselves a lot of artistic license, don't they!

The crane from Kensington and even Brighton is pretty visible and it even isn't going to built that tall.

i told u it was tall fabian this baby will be a great addition!

notice how there are two towers? the main and the shorter 5 sotrey? yeah the shorter one WAS gonna be taller but...yeah
It will have an above(and maybe below) ground carpark, the above ground will be in the bottom of the main toweer.

Also it will be built by Grocon!

BTW its handy to have a dad working in the office tower next to it...my dad heard of this tower easy 2 yrs ago!

just some more info.....The smaller 8 storie tower will have its own core, alreadi has the base formed, as does the other core or the main core which is on the edge of the site, OR ive misjudged and the main tower will share the coree and the core on the edge of the site is for lower levels.....? BTW the levels are at ground level now! Grocon aint wasting time on this!

It's tall in this case, not just due to the tower's height but also due to the large footprint of the site. It has to be able to deliver materials and reach over a large area.

The mast (tower) of the crane is tall so the jib (arm) can reach.

BTW Noonos (our Bondi Junction correspondent). Are you able to get any snaps of the site?

WELL i got to go to the outdoor roof of the eastleauges club 35m up!

if you happen to have an urge to go up there for some CRAZY reason (hint) just go to the second floor of offices and go to M.Peoples and Assoc. and ask for Mark Peoples, than ask for "the key"

You haven't given us the name of the person to ask for!

Is there anything else worth taking up from there?
