I just noticed today that they've started to install the base of the tower crane for this project.

These guys seem to be moving along at rapid pace, especially compared to the construction of the Broadstone!

Baptist seems to be going gangbusters with construction lately.  Looks like they also started on the parking garage along Nira recently.

Maybe eventually a skywalk across Palm Ave so someone could walk to the main hospital? Once a couple of buildings are added probably

I asked this question of a top Baptist executive recently as it made lots of sense to me too. Crossing Palm Ave. would connect via the Nemours crosswalk over I-95 to the main hospital and tie the entire Baptist complex together overhead.  He said it wasn't happening, in part, because Nemours wasn't interested in facilitating the connection.  I gather, too, that it wasn't worth the expense for Baptist vs. the potential usage.  Never say never but sounds like its not likely to get done  8).

Next big project appears to be tearing down the existing (#2) parking garage to build a new main entrance for the main hospital complex.

That's good! That garage demo for a new entrance will provide for better visibility of the new 11-story replacement tower for the existing Laurette Howard Building.

That tower demo and reconstruction in the middle of a busy hospital is going to be something to watch!

Hoping all the new foot traffic brings the businesses on San Marco Blvd back to life after the storm.
