  • THE LEDGER SITE at Lime Street and Sykes Boulevard will be home to several mixed-use buildings and a parking garage under a land-use change approved by Lakeland city commissioners on Monday. Property owner Lakeland West Lime LLC envisions several buildings of up to seven stories containing commercial, retail and residential uses built on current surface parking lots. The Ledger’s business and print operations would remain in their existing building. | Zoning ordinance and planning documents
