Glad it did, because the image wasn't showing up on my phone at all when I posted it.

A quick update from this morning, looks like they are cleaning up the arches ready for rendering. Glazing has also been installed.



Meanwhile, on the builder's Facebook page, is a new interior shot of works to Cinema 1 (former Ballroom).

A new set of update photos from Herron Coorey can be found at the below Facebook link. There's some particularly good shots, including one of the retained original upstairs bar and one of the stairwell, complete with vintage movie posters lining the wall.

Not 100% certain on the cinema itself, but General Pants was advertising a November opening, so I'm thinking around then for the cinema as well.

Some new update photos. Looks like there may have been a small exterior change to the approved plans, with the window heads surrounded by a more contemporary smooth render, rather than the period render finish seen in the plans on page 1. Nothing I'm going to lose sleep over though - they must have their reasons for the change.





Under the awning, the original pressed metal soffit has been reinstalled, minus the new cutouts of course.



And finally, a link to the newest Herron Coorey construction update on Facebook, with interior photos.

What is the purpose of the cutouts in the awning?

They align with the vertical arches, so assumably it's to simply allow pedestrians to view the building rather than it being completely cut-off by the awning...?

Yep, this. It also has the added benefit of acting as skylights and brightening up the frontage of the building, which often felt a bit on the dark side.
