As it's a Friday I thought a couple of updates are in order! As you can see the Horizon tower is almost completed - in fact I can see some curtains in a couple of the flats. The scaffolding is only left on the front and I guess the balconies will be going up soon on the West elevation.
The other new building is proceeding apace I guess there are only another three more floors left to go
How long do we reckon this will take? 1 year? I guess if they are continuing on from where they left off then the ground work is already done.
Their original 'plan' was to start selling apartments towards the end of this year. I don't know if this is still the case.
I have a feeling the flat bit just above the men in high visibility coats will be a garden similar to the others in the development. They are mainly lawned and are mowed at regular intervals.
T block will be the tallest building at the ISV built at the present time, however if they actually go ahead and build the ISV, there are plans for a 32 storey tower and I believe the 2 apartment blocks canteleering into the water will be quite high. They have started some ground work for the ISV, launched the prelim sales brochure and currently sequence homes are advertising for a sales person specifically for the ISV homes at Cardiff Point. Apologies, slightly off topic!
Or diving in to the bay a la Mexico stylee
Bellway could ask me to do the photography! I would so love to get to the top of a crane and I wouldnt ask for anything for travel expenses.
Just as an update they are currently laying reinforcing rods on the floor now they seem to have finished the woodwork. Nothing much to photograph.
that looks nothing like the render
The render doesn't show the west side only the south and east
The tower block should be finished in two weeks at the latest and a number of residents are in the process of moving in (Bellways contractors have stopped parking in the tower block area of the car park as of this morning).
The tower is very nearly finished. On this side the balconies have all been added and the paintwork finished. The garden area is also nearly finished. They have erected a gate and fence and are working on surfacing the promenade. I would guess there is only about a week left to go.
Any pictures of the other sides of the building? Be interesting to what it looks like especially in comparison to the render. By the looks of things this is the side where the architect gave up. Unless the render is another lie.
The tower is almost ready for the residents! They have started to remove the last of the scaffolding. They are also now building the Promenade which leads to the cafe(?) which looks as if it is pretty well finished. Also the garden area seems to be nearly ready too.
The new flats are doing well. I guess they will only have two more floors before they put the roof on.
