Fifteen months after beginning construction, Regency Tower in downtown Riverside is poised to receive its crown.

Sitting alongside the under-construction office building is a 45-foot high, 80,000-pound steel and aluminum dome. In about a week, the dome will be perched atop the southwest corner of the 10-story building. Developer Moshe Silagi says a special crane will used to perform the hoist.

Located at Tenth and Orange streets, Regency Tower was originally developed for the private market. However, the 260,000 sq. ft. building was purchased late last year by Riverside County in order to consolidate several offices scattered across the city. The county, which said it would have cost more to construct its own from scratch, had been discussing a new building for several years.
