Great looking at your pics of the progress.
Been told Bittern House (not 'Court' unfortunately), will soon be watertight, if not already, with completion currently still on schedule for July/Aug 2016.

Above is cut down version of post #68 to show the flat calm condition of River Tyne on 01/11/15

Following on from my last posting on this project with pictures, #68 of 30/10/15, I append some more of my pictures taken on a very windy and blustery Saturday 05/12/15 approx 1130 - 1145 from north side of the Tyne on the day that Storm Desmond was to hit the region - hence the raging state of the Tyne











Be interesting to see how much further damage will occur to the hole in the riverbank wall on Gateshead side of the river

Follow up on post #64, cut down version above

When in the development Saturday 19/12/15 to take pictures of the ongoing Bittern House build noting that timber fence had been removed took some pictures of the newly created landscaped area/view point at east end of former railway buildings of the Greenesfield Depot that overlook the Tyne (picture above)













Due to trees, even at this time of year, the views into Newcastle will not be good and cannot imagine a major pruning operation happening

Great seeing your pics of the building progressing.
As seen in the first pic of your latest post, the builder's site cabins have been moved between Bittern House and the previous building.
This is to make room for ground works to begin asap on the next building! (In a year or two once the next ones complete, they'll then start on the old railway shed to the front of the site (on the river side). These will be larger, more luxury apartments.
