Project Description:

A mixed-use development encompassing approximately 9.4 acres on the north and south sides of West Coast Highway in the Mariner's Mile corridor. The project includes 14 residential condominium units on the south parcel and 108 apartment units on the north parcel, 121,370 square feet of office, boat sales, vehicle sales, retail, and restaurant uses. The design includes a new publically accessible waterfront promenade and 844 parking spaces within surface level and partially subterranean parking. The existing bulkheads would be reinforced and capped along the waterfront. The maximum height of buildings on the north parcel is 26 feet for a flat roof and 31 feet for a pitched roofline measured from established grade. The maximum height of buildings on the south parcel is 35 feet for a flat roof measured from established grade. The existing structure at 2241 West Coast Highway would remain while other structures will be demolished and existing uses will be discontinued with project implementation.
