Even though it has opened, work continues on the Orange parking structure

The top level appears to be far from ready

Some new facades can already be found on this side of The Landing, the large Bottling Co. building will be home to the Morimoto restaurant

Even with all of the construction and the long delays trying to drive by Downtown; walking around Downtown is not too bad. I’ve been down several time in the past 2 weeks and found it somewhat congested with holiday travelers but it was easily manageable and a lot of fun.

If you have not been lately, I suggest visiting and definitely try the various food trucks scattered. I will miss the holiday music and snowflake stilt walkers.

Oh, by the way, great aerial shots. It is cool to see the progress from the air.

I see the Adventurer’s Club still standing. Anybody know what the plans for it is?

I honestly hope that the parking garage gets, somewhat, “Disneyfied.” Becasue it looks outrageously out of place!
