Greenland Australia and principal contractor Richard Crookes Constructions today celebrated the final concrete pour of the first of five low-rise buildings at Leichhardt Green in George Street, Leichhardt. To mark this significant achievement, it is traditional to place a tree on the roof of the completed structure.
