Certainly JCBs working both ends of the site. What they're doing can't be seen from ground level.

The last few days have seen artist impressions and advertising blurb covering the white walls now.

Wow, I am honestly surprised to see this one steaming along. Always thought it would end up being just another render.

My favourite bit is the shot at 0:54 where they forgot to actually include the building they're advertising in the background.

Also, there's going to be a cinema?!

I used all my impressive skills and talents to get into the car park, meaning I pressed a buzzer and someone let me in. Then for reasons I can't even begin to contemplate I took pictures from all 9 floors, which was a colossal waste of time as really only the top floor pics mattered so just ended up deleting almost everything I took.

Are all four buildings going here, because I initially thought it was going to be two on either side of the car park, but there is something in the way on the other side (pics of that to follow shortly)?

A couple of shots from the little window into the site near the harbour city tram stop.

This is the other side from the car park. Is this building going to make way for X1 or is X1 all on the other side?

Pictures of the outside signage, pretty boring and couldn't quite match them up.

I was just being dumb, all four of the X1 buildings are on the other side of the car park. This boring warehouse is staying.

Batley's has been earmarked for flattening for yonks. I will believe it when I see it.

Not sure if the economic turmoil right now is affecting the progress of construction...
