Mayor Curry Favors Demolishing the Jacksonville Landing

Mayor Lenny Curry is in favor of the city overtaking the Jacksonville Landing and tearing it down, in favor of a riverfront park. What Curry calls the “front lawn for the core of downtown.” On the sides of the park he envisions two commercial buildings, much smaller in size than the current Landing.

While the Sleiman family has a lease on the property through 2056, the city contends Jacksonville Landing Investments failed to operate the Landing as a first-class retail facility as required by the lease, finding a way to seize and take over. The rebuttle is that the city has made it impossible for them to operate as a first-class retail facility and in turn failed to uphold their part of the lease.
