The central core is 2 or 3 levels from max height - these from yesterday...

That last photo - that's a great angle looking towards the towers! I remember someone taking a photo from a building around that area and you could see Capital Tower in the background, looked superb!

It's still growing!! Maybe this will end up taller than the Bridge St tower. Originally there was doubt about the height of this one as the crane didn't look very tall compared to the one at Bridge St. The central core is now higher than the crane cab and I wonder if the central core will end up being 27 levels.

You can spot this on the other side of town now. Also driving up past Callaghan Square this beauty dominates your view!

I thought it was going to be 26 floors? What did the planning app say?

planning app says 26 but as we've seen in the bridge st street tower it seems to be easy to change the building while its under construction, wouldnt be surprised if they added a few floors at all, especially if they are currently running under their budget forecast.

The core has now reached its peak, frame type bits are being craned down in the snow today.
