PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Hurricane Michael couldn't tear down the construction of the third Calypso Tower!

Thursday night a topping party was hosted for the building.

President of the building says the topping party is a tradition in construction that has gone on for centuries where you celebrate the "topping out of the building".

"I think it's a big message to not only the local community but you know around the world that Panama City Beach is back up, we're open for business, and we look forward to a bright prosperous new year," said President and CEO of Calypso Tower III, Thomas Johnson.

The building is expecting to open in the third quarter of 2019 and prices for the condos will start in the $200s.
