I hope this means there are more downtown towers on the way. :D

Economic indicators show Tallahassee has the fastest growing economy per capita in Florida, officials said. The local economy is expanding at a rate faster than twice that of the state and nearly three times that of the country.
"These numbers tell a very positive story about the state of the construction industry in the city and the positive impact it has had on economic development throughout our community," said Karen Jumonville, who heads the city's Growth Management Department. "We continue to receive a high volume of requests for preliminary meetings which suggests that there are many more projects in the pipeline and that these positive trends will continue into the foreseeable future."
