Our work to prepare the site and demolition phase is now complete. Current work includes excavation of the site and removal of excess materials.

We recognise the works will have impacts on neighbours and we appreciate your continued patience.

We believe that when delivered, the building will be a great addition to a rapidly changing neighbourhood.
