Florida– The Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a master developer for Phase II of the waterfront Marina Village. The Riviera Beach Marina Village is a 23-acre area between the Intracoastal Waterway and U.S. Highway 1. The city and CRA have spent about $35 million on this site in preparation for redevelopment. Plans for the second phase call for a mixed-use project that includes a hotel, additional restaurants and shops that will sit on about 6 acres located within the interior of the district, which fronts the marina.
A pre-submittal conference, which is mandatory for anyone submitting a proposal, is set for May 14 at the Marina Event Center. The RFP is due by May 31. In May 2017, the Riviera Beach CRA adopted new objectives that reset Marina Village’s master plan to clarify the city’s interest, plan, approach and priorities. The CRA is now seeking a development partner with experience and a successful track-record in planning, designing, constructing, leasing, operating and marketing mixed-use real estate ventures. The goal is to open the second phase by the spring of 2021.
