Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Tower of Babel Florida Style

You won't believe what they want to build in West Palm Beach.

Talk about a height restriction buster.

A shimmering glass needle reaching 1,500 feet into the sky and housing a hotel, observatory, dance club and office space could one-day tower at the entrance to West Palm Beach.

The West Palm Beach Observatory is one of three proposals the city will consider for the "tent site," a prominent city-owned piece of land on Okeechobee Boulevard at Quadrille Boulevard in a median stretch just southeast of CityPlace and within several blocks of the Palm Beach County Convention Center to the west.

In a recent planning document, the city said it wanted a landmark building on the site, now a vacant parking area, that would "create a new icon for the city" and would "contribute to the overall character of the area."
A 1,500 foot tall building in a hurricane prone area, are people nuts? Feel free to share your opinion.

Rick at SOTP is also skeptical.
