Imperial reaches a critical point as excavation is complete and an industrial-scaled bracing structure is used to reinforce the busy Illawarra Railway Line, due to a constraint placed upon ancoring below state infrastructure. Multiple excavators were used to 'handshake' with each other to remove fill from the site. The excavation will allow four split level basement levels to be constructed and bring the structure up to ground level to lock the piles together so that the bracing can be removed. It is expected that the basment levels will be complete by year's end. When complete, the development will comprise 328 apartments above a retail podium (22,209m² GFA).
