#Construction: Liberty Towers

Here is a rendering of what the Glenelg high-rise building will look like:


The 12 level building is due for completion in 2004 and will become Glenelg's third tallest building, after Stamford Glenelg and Atlantis Tower. The building started consturction several months ago.

I'm not so sure about that AG, I don't think that Liberty will be taller than the Saltram Tower.

LIBERTY CONSTRUCTION REPORT

I passed the construction site last Sunday and the construction work is progressing quite quickly, some of the notable achievements:

*All buildings on site have been demolished
*Display Centre has moved to the Marina
*Fencing has being put around site
*Excavation has begun for the 4 storey underground carpark

The project is expected to be completed by the year 2004

The last time I passed, there was only fencing around the construction. Good to see that they've started progressing.

Damn, came back with no photos. Here is what I saw though:

Crane on site
Excavation going on

Very busy in Glenelg this afters. There was a fair on, causing heaps of traffic both on the roads and footpaths, worse than Sydney footpaths.

You mean actually cranes that are put up in sections, or the ground level cranes?

I saw on the news last night footage of Adelaide Airport and in the background there was a large tower crane, a yellow one I think. I'm sure it was recent footage cos the Pier and Holdfast were complete.

AG - Do you even have a camera?

Pikey - I doubt they would have erected the tower crane already, because I inspected the construction site last week, and to me it didn't look ready for the erection of the tower crane.

But I remember the last time I made a comment like this, it was about the Law courts, and the next day they erected the crane, so hopefully there's a crane at Glenelg.

Will - I have a cam, but I'm not allowed to use it.

I might get down to Glenelg asap to see if pikey is correct.

Has anyone seen the big model of Liberty Towers at the shop next to Oyster Bar near the construction site yet? I saw it a few months ago. It is open on Saturday between 4-6pm.

Chris - Liberty will have around 300 units.

there will be no retail space or restaurants on the ground floor, as that would be pointless, as the residents just need to walk across the street, and they are in the trendy Holdfast Marina.
