W 55 in Orlando Finally Leasing Top Floors

Orlando's affluent residents now have the chance to lease one of the most anticipated residential spaces in the city: the top floors of the W 55. After years of waiting, the luxurious building is nearly complete and is finally signing contracts to lease out the coveted spaces.

Seven years after construction began on Metro Orlando's tallest residential tower, the interior space is almost complete on the unfinished top floors of 55 West.

The 33-story high-rise on Church Street in the center of downtown Orlando became a visible symbol of the region's condominium craze, which led to an overbuilding as the real estate market crashed starting in about 2007.

The structure, built starting in early 2006, was converted from condominiums to apartments in 2009, after the Great Recession scattered the project's would-be condo buyers, and the incomplete building was acquired in 2011 by Boston-based TA Associates Realty.
