Great update.  Hopefully all of this starts soon - I wonder what the holdup is with the Vystar parking garage.  I also heard something about there being a rooftop bar on the Life of the South building?  That would be an interesting addition - if there is anything we have learned about ourselves over the last few years it's that we love our rooftop bars!

The rooftop bar is underway.  It will be run by bread and board, but i don't know much else.  I can see them working on it from my office.  Will zipline there from my desk when they open.
