The Downtown Investment Authority (DIA) board has approved incentives for two new businesses in Jacksonville, Florida.
Jon Mroz, the landlord for both projects, Liberty Bay Properties LLC, is also listed as beneficiary of the grant awards.
The money from the DIA Food and Beverage Retail Enhancement Program will help finance interior build-out for Waypoint and Pagemaster Inn and Tavern in a historic building at 333 and 327 E. Bay St.
The bar concepts are linked to investor Jon Mroz, the managing partner of 327 E. Bay LLC, which owns the commercial storefronts comprising Live Bar, Myth Nightclub and Element Bistro + Bar.
Before their vote, board members questioned Mroz about his public safety plan for a proposed packaged to-go beer and spirits sales floor in Waypoint after fielding concerns from residents of the neighboring Plaza Condominiums at Berkman Plaza & Marina.
