The apartment tower would adjoin Riverfront Plaza, the park planned at the former Jacksonville Landing site.

A New York-based developer and a global Copenhagen, Denmark-based architectural firm want to build a $166.6 million, 44-story residential high-rise next to a planned 7-acre park at Riverfront Plaza, the former Jacksonville Landing site.

American Lions LLC, the sole bidder in the Downtown Investment Authority’s request for proposals to redevelop the 1-acre parcel, presented the tower design by Bjarke Ingels Group on Tuesday to a scoring committee of DIA and city officials.

The 486-foot-high building would be one of the tallest in Northeast Florida. By contrast, the neighboring 37-story Wells Fargo Center is 535 feet tall.
