Construction cranes swing overhead, police officers direct traffic and hundreds of construction workers hammer and drill away on multiple projects in downtown Tucson.

For some people, the flurry of construction is the happy culmination of a years-long effort to revitalize downtown.

For others, the snarled traffic, detours and closed streets are inconveniences that elicit nothing more than a string of expletives.

Today, the Star navigates the maze of activity to show what's going up, what's coming down and what's getting a makeover.

From new restaurants to apartments to office space - whether you love or hate the construction - there's no doubt that downtown Tucson is coming back to life.
