Why do people repost pictures that are just ONE post above theirs, they are currently writing? I dont get it? Doenst theese " " ones aren't enough to show that the pictures above are mentioned?

Sorry for the shakey cam at the start, it is some distance away

Though if you view in HD, quality is clear when paused.

Loads more to come, and I finally got to complete my set of fountain videos.

But right now I'm off for some beers.

What are they still lifting with the cranes ?

As long as the cranes are up, they are using the Zone A on the ground, and landscaping cannot go on at the Concourse area outdoors, as long as crane operations are taking the ground space. Also, there is the risk of falling objects doing damage.

Also, we won't see any convincing evidence of opening preparations or announcements - hotel bookings, etc. until the cranes are gone. We won't feel that the opening dates announced are going to happen

Does anyone know what is still going on ? It's not just cladding, because most of that is up above the cranes.

Thank you

sometimes cranes lift up things that cant go in normal lift. maybe services or cleaning bmu,s. also alot easier with stuffing around with taking the palet load in via lift.

Hi all.

Also I think the Dec 02 '09 date is the soft opening for the hotel. Since the hotel entrance opens to zone C (facing North) and that zone is much farther ahead of the other 2 in regards to landscaping The date looks to be reasonable. I'm sure the crane diassembly proceedure will be completed long before then anyway. Completion of the whole of the works in the first quarter or half of '10 ?

I'm not saying Dec date for the full opening is impossible but that it seems a little unreasonable. I'm expecting yet another press release that will actually be close to the truth for the first time ...
