When is this demolition, wrecking ball, and razing madness going to stop?

I refuse to believe They are destroying perfectly good buildings with no ready plan to replace them. This is happening way too frequently.

You must be new to town!

At this point I’m starting to think there has to be some sort of secret influx of funding into the Downtown area. I refuse to believe They are destroying perfectly good buildings with no ready plan to replace them. This is happening way too frequently. So frequently that I’m developing conspiracies. Is Jax expecting a lot of Chinese investors? Are we getting Saudi oil money that’s trying to diversify??? WTF is going on?

Chinese investors....Hmmmm.......

^Last year, it was Buffalo. This year, they're headed to Tampa. Just 10 years ago, one could have made a strong argument that DT Jax was faring better than Tampa's.

When I had field trips back in grade school we always had to write a paragraph on what we learned.  I would love to see a paragraph from someone after one of these trips.
