The sails also blocked a tonne of light, they made the lobby and Felix Street really dark, hopefully this lets a lot more light in.
The only good thing is that while they did make it all dark they also made it very cool in the heat.

The under awning lighting should certainly help illuminate the area. It won't help Felix Street though - those shade sales will remain.

So, have they knocked off the fancey awning decorations altogether? I thought that was still coming.
It will be still to come because, without it, the building wouldn't have an pedestrian awning, which I'm sure Council wouldn't stand for.

Whilst I want that fancy awning on 288 there wasn't one originally?

The whole open frontage of 288 was effectively one big awning. Not a particularly good one, as it didn't really connect up to adjacent awnings, but an awning nonetheless.

With that area having now become an enclosed space, an awning has to be added to satisfy council requirements.

Here are some shots of 288 Edward Street from yesterday. Note the silver mountings above the podium facade.

Noticing the red netting, looking up shows a prototype of the new window hood things in place:

Starbucks fitout was nearing completion as I walked past this morning. Signs up saying it’s due to open in July. It looks to be open to the lobby of the building on one side and has a single glass door to the street.

Fitout seemed nice. scandi wood and leather chairs, a large share table in the middle of the space.

Thanks for the lead.

I took some new pics today

Meanwhile, over at 260 Queen Street, the scaffolding and gantries are down and the awning is going up. They need to give some of that stone a bit of a scrub, especially near the corner where the Westpac signage used to be.

It's good to have The Banker back on display again.
