I feel like I've been watching 55-West go up for like 2 years now. Seriously. It's about time they have this puppy out of the ground and into the air. I can't wait to see it again in December when it'll already be part of the skyline. Hopefully by then there will be cladding and other goodies to keep it from being an ugly construction eyesore.

What a piss poor location though. Yeah, it's next to Church Street, but right next to the railroad (the future commuter rail) and next to noisy, noisy I-4.

I can't wait for it to finish.

the flip side to that coin is that church street station is cut in half by the RR tracks already, 55W will straddle the tracks, and commuter rail will revive the original train station/stop there and the whole complex will be its own train destination by the time 2009 rolls around. there is also whisperings that the new arena will go on church street opposite I-4.

55 West is not straddling the railroad tracks. The tracks run along the west side of the project.
