On Google-Maps there is some activity onside.

But I dont know if it is old or new. Could somebody take a picture or at least say, if there is something going on.

Edit: I just played a bit of detective and compared Google Earth to Google Maps. And the entry to the side did get bigger. On Google Maps there is also activity onside.


Then I scrolled to the left and saw, that the Palm Gateway towers are under construction in Maps but not in earth. So, it could mean, that the shots of google maps are newer ones, but I dont know.
At least there was something happening onside, but a real confirmation would be nice to see.
