Hmm.. sorry, for some reason the forum isn't constraining the image to the reduced size linked to on Flickr.

It is one hell of a big concrete pump!  I'll have to google to see the physics behind it - pumping that concrete up 56 meters and what the flow rate is.  Then you see the tiny little concrete buckets the crane lifts up, I guess due to weight they can bring up more at a time.

 

Update:  Well, seems the world's biggest concrete pump is 70 meters, that should do for Victoria.  Made by Putzmeister. Hmm...

 

Update 2:  Darn, I lied.  86 meter pump:

 

 

you clean these things out with a sponge ball:

That west wall is butt-ugly. I hope there is a plan to dress it up (other than just paint) to disguise those concrete blocks. It could be a very long time before something is built on the adjacent property that covers this facade.

On a more positive note, 6 floors have now been poured so the building is at about 1/3 of its full height.  :thumbsup:

Alas, it would appear that a coat of paint is the best we'll see on this part of the building

That wall is like that (I'm assuming) because of fire code and being next to another property.

Oh I am 100% certain it is. I just wish it wasn't so ugly. If I thought the property next door was soon to be redeveloped I wouldn't care, but I suspect that's not going to happen for a long time. With 3 directly adjacent towers (when Legato and 989 are completed) there will be limited options on what can get built on the LEAF property. Then again, The Wave has it's semi-permanent green mesh so perhaps aesthetics aren't all that important in this area.

Slowly but somehow also suddenly this is onto the 9th floor, so about halfway to full height...cool!
