I thought I’d put in a post for last week’s Friday My Town theme, even if it’s too late to link up at the site. (But if you’d like to see some more photos from around the world on the same theme, go have a look!)
I took this photo yesterday (Sunday) on walking home from town (coming back from spending the afternoon out at The House in the countryside). The high rise building is just recently finished; what I had not seen before (not having walked this way for a while) is that they’ve now also got started with the next new building in the same block. I know it’s going to be a bit lower, more like the buildings you see in the background in the second photo.
Below is how the building site looked about 14 months ago (looking from the opposite direction). They were just getting started on the “tower” then.
They’ve been building several more apartment blocks in this area over the last couple of years. I’m glad I did not move to one of the older houses closer to these building sites. As it is, I do see the top five or six floors of the highrise from my window (rising above the treetops); but I’m too far away from it all to be disturbed by all the construction noise.
I know I have several more photos of the tower rising over the past year… But finding them is another matter.
