New marina OK’d in Dania Beach

ADVERTISEMENT

A new megayacht marina called Dania Beach Megaport is in the works for waterfront property behind the old St. Maurice Catholic Church and across the Dania Cut-off Canal from Marine Max, just west of Derecktor Shipyard.

The city of Dania Beach approved preliminary permits to allow for a marina on 5 acres of the waterfront property. Plans call for four, 400-foot piers that can accommodate any number of yachts in a flexible design.

The facility will be a marina, with only minor repairs allowable at the dock.

“We’re excited about the project,” said Ken Edelman, president of Edelman Development Corp., a real estate development company in Weston, Fla., just west of Ft. Lauderdale who will develop the property. “We know it’s very much needed. My father, my partner in this project, is a boater and we’ve always been interested in developing a marina. There’s an increasing demand for these types of boats and not a lot of place for them to dock.”

Edelman is under contract to buy the property from the Archdiocese of Miami, pending city approval of the project. Dania Beach gave its final approval on Sept. 8.

Additional state and federal permits are needed to dig out the basin and build the piers. Those permits are expected to be received by the end of the year, with construction beginning in the first half of 2016. Edelman said he expects construction to take about a year.
