Very exciting!

It seems like everything's suddenly happening at once after a long period of nothing. Portside, Mirage, Bridgeways/Estuaries at Century City etc.

Awesome stuff

I think 22 bree is possibly a bit away, no planning and approvals been applied for so still has some hurdles to overcome.

This was the plan:



Glad to hear they'll be taking advantage of the site's location. We're going to have a great little cluster with Portside, 22 Bree, The Modern and whatever the new tower might be.

I'm not sure what's going on here. The containers are there, but I can't see the digger on site from Somerset Road. It could be hidden behind one of the buildings.

When I drove past the other day, workmen seemed to be going in and out of the site doing painting of some sort.

I saw the digger on site this past weekend, when I drove past.

They really need to get a move on with the construction.

Any idea what's happening here? The digger is still sitting on-site and I see workers walking in and out of the site dressed in red, but nothing appears to be happening.
