It just comes back to the place-making downtown. It’s not a secret anymore.’

Next up is the demolition of the former Duval County Courthouse on Bay Street for $3 million, then for more than $37 million to remove a ramp to the Hart Bridge. Another $18 million is designated for eliminating The Jacksonville Landing.

Development by wrecking ball is the new motif. Of course, the hope is that new development will replace the existing facilities and’hope upon hope’that these new facilities will prove more successful than what they replaced.
