Mayor Brown raised eyebrows a few weeks ago when his administration threatened to cancel the Jacksonville Jaguars stadium lease over what company (Spectacor Management Group or Global Spectrum) will manage Everbank Field and the city's other entertainment venues. What remains to be discussed is what is best for Jacksonville when it comes to these company's proposals to manage our entertainment venues. With this in mind, Metro Jacksonville has gained access to Global Spectrum's proposal and has decided to make it available for our readers.

Global Spectrum in interested in providing facilities management services for Everbank Field (above), Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville, Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts, Equestrian Center, Prime Osborn Convention Center, and Ritz Theatre and Museum.

Global Spectrum's proposal includes plans for a potential "Live!" entertainment complex to be developed near Everbank Field.  Global Spectrum's partner, The Cordish Company, has developed several successful urban entertainment complexes in recent years including Baltimore's Power Plant Live! (above), Louisville's 4th Street Live! and Philadelphia's XFINITY Live!.
