There was someone on site today, he was hitting the steel I bar with a hammer (in the middle, there were no bolts near where he was hitting). He was either bored, trying to look like he was doing something, retarded or trying to temper/forge the metal. I then looked at Curzon Gate and it was buzzing with builders. *sigh*

I went past yesterday morning and there were 6 (six!) men on top and they were pouring concrete.

I think a crane may have gone up at Masshouse. I'm not 100% on this as I saw it from a distance but looked to be in the vicinity of Masshouse. Can anyone else confirm this???

No crane up Friday afternoon, actually, there was no activity on block M on Friday. Fitzgerald were on site building a drop off area by the side of the first phase all week though.

Ok, phase one is still not complete. Quite a few of the apartments have missing kitchens, bathrooms and some are still at first fix stage. Phase two has had the first three floors of steel rise since mid-August.

I'm sure I heard something like that. It may have been a different project though... Oh I can't remember.

Compare this to SnowHill which was busy yesterday on a Saturday!!

Well a quarter section of two new floors has been put up today, with a yellow crane in attendance, wonder how many weeks we will have to wait for floors 5 and 6 once 3 and 4 are done this week, lol.

Looks like a quarter section of 1 floor outside my window today. Meanwhile, top floors of Curzon Gate are having their cladding and windows installed today.

Makes me wonder what the proposed construction schedule is on this.

Edit: in hindsight, why did I bother posting this?

I think I saw a crane operating there yesterday - it was tall so the steelwork could be going up again
