Looking for a place to park your mega-yacht?
Fear not: A new marina on Watson Island designed to hold 50 yachts up to 550 feet long will open in time for the first week of Art Basel in early December, developer Flagstone Property Group said Tuesday.
The deep-water marina is part of a planned, mixed-use development called Island Gardens that has drawn criticism from locals concerned about traffic. The approximately $1 billion project will include two luxury hotels, a residential building, upscale restaurants and a luxury shopping center, developers say, although they are still working to acquire financing for the residential and retail components.
Those portions of the project are scheduled to open in 2017 and 2018.
The architectural firm Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates will design the master plan.
