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
  • 108 apartment units on the North Parcel
  • 128,640 square feet of nonresidential floor area (including 96,905 square feet of existing and new office, 19,820 square feet of boat/vehicle sales, and 11,915 square feet of existing and new retail/food service)
  • A new publicly accessible waterfront promenade
  • 827 surface, structured, and subterranean parking spaces
  • Existing bulkheads would be reinforced and capped along the waterfront
  • The marina design would add headwalk sections, a new gangway, and reduce the total slips by five from 68 slips to 63 slips

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 structures at 2241 West Coast Highway and 2244 West Coast Highway would remain while other structures will be demolished and existing uses will be discontinued or relocated with project implementation.
