No time being wasted going from demo to construction on this one ...
Lozza - normally id agreed re: Brady signage but on this occasion welcome it !! They are basically building the original non-Brady proposal unchanged if it ends up as rendered complete with bendy glass and new laneways will be something to celebrate (possibly at one of the new bars in said laneways ??) ..
I was there too, A. Looks like most of the perimeter reinforcing is in place, so I guess they'll be digging soon. I agree re Brady. I think we should give them the benefit of the doubt, as it's an inherited design from a respectable architect.
At any other time in the history of Melbourne this would have been a significant Project. As an individual tower rising without any peer we would all be watching aghast. But times are most unusual.
With at least a dozen others of greater significance rising at this time, such a beast is relegated to passé status.
Maybe we should have cameras trained on this from all angles, every day, just as we do with A108 and Aurora, just to give it the status it deserves! It will be an interesting build indeed.
