I don't know, but it was probably due to a working accident. Or maybe just a cigarette that ignited some fuel or something.

It was however quickly under control, and the damages rather small. But they've spent a couple of months repairing it. It won't have any delays on the overall project as far as I know. Opening this autumn.

Thanks for the updates. Those trees on the narrow streets between buildings are always a nice touch.

Uhm, what are you saying? :P It's dense alright, but the buildings are moderately sized. Many of the buildings are in the range of 5-7 floors.
