ACT/ DICKSON - #U/C: Block 8, Section 1 - 9L? / 30m? / Hotel?

This one seems to have slipped under the radar (although I remember a couple of people on this forum asking about what's going on there).

It's some sort of (hotel?) development on Dooring Street, Dickson (just behind the ABC building at Northbourne/Wakefield intersection).
I remember seeing the original plans ages ago and I 'think' it's going to be 9 levels and a hotel, but can't remember properly.
At the moment it looks like the core is up to about level 7 or 8.
Here's some pictures I took this morning (hopefully this works as it's the first time I've tried to post pictures on this forum )

Yeah, someone brought this up a while ago. Thanks for the updates! there is a large block fenced off in Kingston, was just a park I think. Do you have any idea what is going on there?

At the risk of going off-topic....
where abouts in Kingston do you mean? there's quite a bit going on (and planned) in that area atm. would be interesting to see if one of the proposed developments has started kicking off.

PS: when i was taking those photos of Block 8, Section 1, I couldn't see any signs saying what this building actually is. (new secret ASIS HQ? )

Its nearly opposite the main section in Kingston (where green square and that are but on the other side). The big fences say Kingston Place? I thought it was more Griffith than Kingston.

How do you know the Dickson site is 9 levels? Be nice to see a render, strange they didn't have one at the site.
