Construction workers probably would say "ho-hum", but the city manager and few other muckety-mucks got a pretty cool view of Kalamazoo.

When we were kids, who didn't dream of growing up to be a construction worker, like Bob the Builder or something like that. City Manager Jim Ritsema and some others got a true bird's eye view from the crane towering over the new Exchange Building going up downtown at Michigan and Rose Sts. I would think the toughest part is not looking down. Acrophobia or not, that's got to get your attention, in a crane.

Reports say the project should be complete in early 2019.

Here's a video of the construction moving forward.
