Parraman posted a few weeks back that the core is two levels above ground. Just need some confirmation.

Yeah sorry guys I've been pretty slack, only get on to the site when I got a day of.... today I guess!

Currently Sydney Water core is 3 above ground and was yesterday close to being four...

I know about this thread, but didn't think of it as Civic Place....which is looking like a bit of a long-term dogfight due to the intransigence of certain property owners along Darcy Street.... Council is apparently in discussion with the owners and "expect to reach a compromise soon".....

Cheers!

Still going. It should of been resolved years ago.

The last time I was in Parramatta, I ate at the Hungry Jacks if I can recall was on one of the disputed properties. I regret eating there, as eating elsewhere meant that they didn't get my dough and the lower earnings would force them out.

We should avoid eating there to hasten their removal

The whole story is hard to swallow. A couple of stupid dicks are able to stop the whole Civic Place development and the Court is on their side!

What compromise? Give those dicks a note to move out in 2 months and start demolishing the whole block, that's it!

The core appears just as big as the Parramatta Council building itself.

It's supposed to be. It doesnt seem to be any sign of offices moving out. Parramatta council's Customer Service Centre is still there.

They'll have to relocate somewhere, so maybe they need to build new premises before moving out? In which case that tower could be around for a few more years.

According to todays SMH, the reason why the rest of the development is being held up is because they still havent resolved the matter regarding the accquistion of three properties. They were compulsorily accquired by Parramatta Council, but the owners took them to court and won.

There was a story on it on channel 7 I think. One of them is a hairdresser... his father passed the property on to him and on his deathbed told him to never give it up.

I saw that and similar on the ABC: can't help thinking these guys are hanging out for a Really Big Payout, or else they're not too bright.
