Photos: MLB slugger's beachfront mansion nearing completion

Posted: Updated:

It's been nearly two years since Major League Baseball superstar Ryan Howard began building his home along Belleair Shore.

Still to this day, it remains a work in progress.

It's one of the most ambitious private home projects in Bay Area history -- a lavish 17,000-square-foot, multi-million-dollar mansion compete with a pool, lazy river, and bowling alley.

On Thursday, at least a dozen construction workers were completing finishing touches on the home. A steady stream of onlookers gathered in front on Gulf Boulevard, as well as behind on the beach.

All of them wanted to know who was building it.

It's a move that makes sense for Howard, who plays for the Philadelphia Phillies. The team's spring training facilities are just a short drive away in Clearwater.
