Not a wind up at all, but I'm completely out of touch with the skyline of the area these days. I traveled along the Great West Road in May 2019 for the first time in seven years and barely recognised the place. I've seen all the new buildings of course, but had no idea what was what. Things change far more quickly when you're away than people who aren't away realise. So looking at this picture, are both these buildings (the tall one to the right and the lower one to the left) flats? And so I can get my bearings, where are they? Are they on the Great West Road?
Take a look at the drone videos.

@vcmazz the four sites are shown above.

Central Eastern and Central Southern are currently under construction. The Capital Court site is due next. Then the last site, Duffy, is due to be the last of the high rise blocks. Around 1000 flats now, I believe.

Or, as Banana mentions, take a look at some of these. Everything is explained within the videos.
