Here is a driveby update of the expansion.  Looks like the structure is topped out at 8 floors.

It looks like I will be working next door to Baptist South this summer, so this will give me something to look forward to on the long commute.

Sorry, but it was a cool thought that maybe they could build Baptist World out next to World Golf Village... Residential, retail, offices, Theme Park, and a negative amount for carrying the current office until Baptist World Opens. Think of the possibilities, First Baptist Church moves their whole campus to the Southside and relocates next to the hospital and "Baptist World". Now image the theme park, a giant version of Tellie Tubbies (Without Tinkie Winkie of course). Baptist World will only serve Kosher Iced Tea... Sea salt chips to go with the fish dinners, except on Friday, when they'll have sirloin just to tick off the Catholics. Baptist World will be an interesting Theme Park, certain adult features or smiles, for example you may ride the roller coaster if your male or female, provided your swim-wear styles date from 1925 or before. Otherwise we will not condone mixed bathing.

Sooner or later, the old Baptist home will fill up and they'll start to die off, the whole city will turn out in a ticker tape parade when Tinkie Winkie heads for the entry gate. Other headline news of that date, is Hell froze over, JTA gave up on Mass Transit and surrendered it to the new Jax Transit Authority, and a republican in Washington signed the new Amtrak budget request of 30 Billion dollars a month for rail development in the USA.

Downtown returns to shops, restaurants, parks, offices, concerts, games, Skyways, Streetcars, and happy homeless folks. Dream on...
