55 West, commonly referenced as, simply, 55 W, is an apartment tower in Downtown Orlando. The building overlooks Church Street Station, and stands next to the Suntrust Center. Built in 2009, the building is the fifth-tallest building in downtown

Details

The building has a slanted almost "house-like" roof compared with traditional, flat rooves found on many commercial buildings within the area. The top point is lit blue at night. This all makes the building a unique part of the skyline especially at night.

The building's pool is elevated and overlooks central downtown. The pool has a tropical theme.

The building has multiple amenities and houses a convenience store and restaurant on the ground floor. The associated development across Church Street contains a piano bar and the Mad Cow Theatre complex.
