adamonline quote-[So in other words, if levels 15/16 were exposed on the core at this time last year, you are predicting that at this current rate, that the core will top out late next year?

By rights it should do, as I imagine that less concrete needs to be poured as the building rises, and less mass is needed for structural support.

Does anybody have an idea of approximately when the core and floors will level out respectively?]

I could ask Grocon when they think Eureka will top out?

The fllorplates are around 20 levels behind the core so they should top out around 20 weeks after the core tops out or around the start of May 2005.

I know as of around June/July this year the settlement for the Riverrise section of the building was to be in July 2004 with occupancy in August 2004.

When talking to one of the vendors contracted to fit out some of the appartments they said that they believed it would be more like November/December '04 which sounded more likely to me.

The thing is if its not going to top out until the end of next year with the floors to follow about 20 weeks later, I fail to see is how the lower floors will have their certificate of residence approved when the building isn't even finished. I could see that it would be fine once the exterior & structure was finished so that only interior constuction needed to be completed on the upper levels but how can you move any occupants in to a construction site?

Once the final setback occurs, I can imagine that the core will rise much quicker, I wouldn't be suprised if from the start of construction in January that the core's final 38 odd floors will be done by Sept/Oct.

Well there are hundreds of people walking around the shopping area at QV and its a construction site as well. Maybe the rules are a lot easier now.

The lower office floors of the rialto began to be occupied 4 months before the tower was topped out.

Ciaobellaxo, it's the metal framed attachment to approx. levels 11 - 14 on the left side of the first few photos.

From memory, the renderings show it as something that is purely for decoration in a post-modern kinda way. I know that one of the resident experts on this forum will know more about it than I.

Here is a rendering of 'the box':


I think that Eureka is looking better than the renderings, the colours and materials that are going up are all top notch.
