A public workshop is set for tonight looking at the future of The Jacksonville Landing.

Landing owner Toney Sleiman says he wants to make major changes to the landmark downtown property that could include everything from residences on the river to opening the property up for better street views of the St. Johns River.  

Sleiman, along with Jacksonville Downtown Investment Authority CEO Aundra Wallace and Downtown Vision Inc. executive director Terrn Lorince, joined Melissa Ross to preview the workshop and take listener questions.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at the main branch of the Jacksonville Public Library.
