Countdown is making progress on its Ponsonby building project site.

Construction of Ponsonby's new $220 million Vinegar Lane and Cider Building projects is well under way.

A spokeswoman for Countdown supermarkets, which is developing the site, said a drone had been used to photograph work from above.

Building was now focused on the four levels of parking under the Cider Building, which will house the Countdown and 8000sq m of offices. The 31 buildings will bring apartments, offices, the supermarket, parking and shops to the site between Williamson Ave, Crummer Rd and Pollen St.
