Lunch - lots of activity and noise from the core and the site is getting more and more materials delivered. I see about 5 delivery guys in orange jackets waiting at various site entrances.

I'm sure I remember someone mentioning vehicle lifts—could it be that?

I think the hole in the pinnacle site is for access to the underground car park.

Photo from this morning - don't worry people are on site especially on the core. Looks like a steady increase of equipment coming on site they also moved the basement slabs directly infront of the window.
