Prima Pearl in the news

10 Jun 2014

Prima Pearl in the news Image

The construction of Prima Pearl is nearing completion, but was in the news for two odd reasons last month.

The apartment tower, on the corner of Power and Queensbridge streets, first attracted the headlines when a construction worker was left stranded for nine hours in a gantry outside the 28th floor.

The Metropolitan Fire Brigade was called in to rescue the man.

A couple of days later the tower was again in the mainstream media spotlight, after a video went viral of a man climbing the cranes at the top of the construction site.

The man, who calls himself “Drjft” posts videos online of himself scaling high-rise construction and describes himself as an “urban explorer”.

Prima Pearl’s developer, Schiavello, will be hoping the construction can be completed without attracting any more unwanted attention.
