The building seems to be overflowing with trees and greenery in that illustration in the TC.

 

I noticed that too. Very different from the thumbnail at the top of the page.

 

Promotional material versus application material. The illustration with greenery is meant to appeal to buyers, and the illustration without greenery is meant to showcase the architectural form and character under review through the DP. Very likely just a separate layer in the image file that they can toggle on and off as needed.

Looks like they are installing shock absorbers into the base?

Maybe this has something to do with all the clay that covers much of this site?

Do we know what that multi coloured material is?

Know it all.

I don't recall the forms being so colourful on other projects. Almost seems a shame to cover them in concrete.

Definitely the forms for a concrete floor.
