2. Het voormalige atrium van het winkelcentrum.

3. De aannemers gebruiken nu het kantoor, de ingang is nog het enige restant van de oude inrichting.

4. Ter vergelijking het winkelcentrum zoals het er nog begin 2007 uitzag.
[IMG]http://i25.************/2ngarn4.jpg[/IMG]

5. Bij de lage woontoren is een enorme bekistingswand neergezet.
[IMG]http://i31.************/iwu06q.jpg[/IMG]

6. Nog een van de lage toren.
[IMG]http://i27.************/16gg86r.jpg[/IMG]

7. De garage achter Babylon schiet aardig op, in 18 weken zou dit klaar moeten zijn.
[IMG]http://i28.************/2z9gqqw.jpg[/IMG]

8. In de garage, op nivo -1 zie je de toegang vanaf de Irenestraat.
[IMG]http://i26.************/15x5qbp.jpg[/IMG]

9. De kolommen voor de hoge toren, zoals je ziet komt er nog een flink gedeelte van New Babylon bovenop deze garage te staan.

Secondly my update from today 2008/06/03:

* tower 2:

rebars for the 1st big wall



The tower will also be on a pilar, it blocks the view of the progress of the rest of tower



* mid section

more prefab means another floor



A few hours later



Pilars that will hold the steel section that will hang over the old building on the inside.



And the pilars on the outside



* stationsquare:

A part of the station square is used for the construction. The huge steel parts that will be used later will be put together here. Until then it's used to store some sand and other materials





* tower 1:

There are some problems with foundation of the Stichthage building because of the construction of the new tower. But work is underway to solve these problems, but it could mean some delays if it's not solved soon enough.







tower 1 will also be build partially over parking garage next to it, some pillars have already been constructed.





demolition of the old floor





progress on the underground parking

Today

* tower 2:

The big wall will get some interesting concrete shapes





* mid section

This has to be higher then the old hotel before September 10th, because then a steel frame will be put over the old hotel with two mobile cranes. It will be a very spectacular operation, the steel frame will weight 550 tons and is 40m wide. (Thanks Tweety for the info)



* tower 1

The remains of the old floor



pouring concrete for the columns in the garage.





The garage is also progressing

And a huge update from today (20008/07/08)

tower 2



On the other side of the building these "tunnels" are waiting to be used for building the tower.



Midsection Koekamp side:

very busy on this side



As you can see on the 1st picture of the model above you can see that the wall sticks out from the 7th floor, the 1st steel frame to make that happen was placed today





The prefab core of this part also grew 1 floor since the last update (maybe even 2)





And on the square in front of the project they're started putting the big steel frame together that will hang above the old building.



It's huge







tower 1

The underground parking is now being constructed on the corner were tower 1 will be build. It should be finished before the tower begins to grow.



They were also digging on the site



Lot's of activity today even with the rain pouring down occasionally, 8 cranes in total were in use today.



Parking update:



This tub was full with water until recently, now it's filled up a bit again because of the rain.

Amazing complex building. And, very special to see so many steel on a dutch buildingsite. I wonder if the color will fit in the grey dutch weather... Let's hope so! I'm still fascinatad by the complexity...

Btw, someone who said new babylon is a bad name, the old building bbelonged to babylon which is some sort of hotel. new bablyon just means new building for it, not the famous gardens

this morning

tower 2

Still building the 3rd floor







Koekamp side (Koekamp is the name of the park on the other side of the road)







This is the floor were the steel frame that will be lifted on September 10 will be put on. I think it will only grow higher after that small job is done.

Parking Update:

Today was the day of the big lift of the steel frame on top of the hotel with 2 big cranes. It was quite a sight!







And we have lift off













highest point of the lift





The hardest part, moving the frame by driving the 2 cranes to the right spot





above the pillars





Touchdown
