The downtown riverfront may soon be seeing a big change.

A new proposal from Jacksonville Landing owner Toney Sleiman would tear down the landmark building, and put two mixed-use structures in its place featuring apartments, restaurants, shopping and possibly a hotel.

Elton Rivas is the co-creator of the One Spark Festival. Last week I sat down with him and learned “how to One Spark.” Rivas told me he was excited about how this will transform Jacksonville.
