It's not ready for business yet, but they're already celebrating at the Mansion on Forsyth Park. Today, city and county leaders along with hotel owner Richard Kessler held what's called a "topping out" ceremony. They planted an eight foot magnolia tree on top of the 126-room mansion.
It's a Scandinavian tradition that started 1,300 years ago. It celebrates all the work that has been done to complete a building.
Owners say it is fitting for this hotel that will house a little bit of everything. "Restaurants, spas, a lounge, art galleries, music rooms, a cooking school, it'll all be right here at the Mansion on Forsyth Park," said Kessler.
The hotel is scheduled to open next February.
