OFFICIAL: Eureka Tower

I'll just merged this with the backed up thread when it comes back.

Don't ask when it'll be back, because no-one knows!

Anyhow...

OK well to kick off the E thread Mk.II ..

By my calculations there should have been a core pour Sat/Mon but then theres been a wee bit of rain in Melb apparently recently eh?

Also as (I think) kasper noted, the crane rose Tuesday.. so keep your eyes peeled for a core pour Wed if it ain't already happened ...

All up hopefully should be a core rise by this weekend. I'll be back in action doing the daily drive-by on Thursday so hardly a panel will be missed!

Sorry to be off topic, but is there a back-up for the World Tower thread?

I went down there yesterday (Tuesday) and the Putzmeister was working frantically in the core, indicating a pour in the core.

yeah, we will probably get a core rise either on friday, or on the weekend.

The glass faceade is coming along nicely too. hopefully., they will rip right into is and it will be full steam ahead !

I was down there yesterday and got some shots when I noticed from Flinders St that the crane was hauling up some glass. Wasn't going to post the pics though as there was no spectacular change in things, apart from a few new glass panels and the about-to-rise core getting poured.

But since there's a dearth of photos now that our "virtual" Eureka has been WTCed, I may as well give people something to look at besides the webcam suggested by Tayser:

Magnicient stuff!!

Yep the core pour on Tuesday was 12 working days since the previous rise (on the 11th) .. that's *including* potential days lost due to rain (which I'm not sure about) so it's pretty much on schedule for 10 working days btw rise & pour and then 2-3 days to the next rise ..

I'd say barring rain it should rise Friday .. which will be nice because I should finally be back! (I missed my flight home thanks to American Airlines incompetence) ..

Also lozza & guys keep your eyes peeled for an east floor rise on Thursday or Friday !!

I still can't believe that in a couple of months Eureka's core will be so high that we wont be able to tell if they actually raised the core just by looking through this webcam ... I LOVE IT
