New York-based American Lions LLC is proposing a high-rise next to the future Riverfront Plaza park.

A skyline-defining, 44-story apartment tower on the former site of the Jacksonville Landing has moved through a round of negotiations on a multi-million incentive package hammered out by the Downtown Investment Authority staff.

American Lions, based in New York, proposes to build the tower with about 300 apartments on a one-acre portion of Riverfront Plaza.
