King Kong at your evolutionary service.

Tampa's real estate market has taken a big hit with values dropping, availability of new and existing homes rising and most people unsure of how to react...or not. While traditional houses sport For Sale (or even short sale) signs in many neighborhoods, Tampa's downtown is chocked full of new condominium towers featuring every amenity a buyer could want. It's not surprising then that real estate agents and developers of residential and office properties have gone to some extremes to attract attention to their vacancies and services. This 30-40-foot banner on the side of an office building proudly shouts King Kondo, a Condo Evolution. He's huge and outrageous, but if he can't move a property then you're out of luck. His fine white, southern-climate suit and shopping bag only slightly soften his approach. Where is his Panama hat? Next he may be swotting you right off the street. Let's just hope we turn things around and he can get back to movie-stardom retirement.

There are some places here that are giving away a new car if you buy in their building. What's next?
