I noticed this morning that a gantry has gone up in front of 299 Adelaide Street. I haven't seen anything on PDOnline about modifications, but it looked like a fairly substantial gantry. The signage up beneath it is for facade cladding specialists Aclad, so maybe the building is getting flammable cladding removed?

That's a pretty recent development. You may be onto something regarding the cladding.

Looks like we have another recent development that will be shedding its current cladding - a Construction Management Plan (A005511692) has been lodged for works to Brisbane Square, replacing large amounts (if not all) of that building's Aluminium Panels. It's a big job, commencing in August 2020 and running until early 2022 according to the letters to neighbouring properties.

Has that building got a problem with outside noise? I haven't noticed it when in the Library? Or has it to do with fire protection?

^^ If I had to guess I'd say this is just the back so far, with the horizontal awning pieces still to come.

Not a major change but a notable one - the old National Australia Bank signage has been removed from 308 Queen Street, and replaced with UQ signage.

I was kinda hoping to see the Queensland National Bank signage reinstated to match that on the front doors, but c'est la vie.
