The Victoria Square building was due to be demolished in a couple of years, about the time Festival Plaza is meant to open (at least that was the case pre-covid).
I’m pretty sure that building is heritage listed.

The Victoria Square fountain has the same heritage listing as well, didn't stop them moving it to the southern side.

Somehow I can’t see this building being moved elsewhere just a slightly different scale and purpose.

If work is going to start soon on the world class tower, then why did they take the cranes down ?

C'mon, man, you're not an idiot. You know as well as I do that none of those cranes were positioned for the construction of this building, and their type would also likely obstruct the flight path.

They probably need a different type of crane, and need to locate them in a different location for the tower.

Soon is subjective. What's soon to them may not be soon to you.

I can’t see any trees or shade and not sure why hasn’t there been more money/ effort on landscaping. Could be a concrete heat bowl in summer and cold & desolate in winter.

That will be part of the last stage , at this stage , although they have already halved the number of trees originally planned.
