Viking Developers and the city of Riviera Beach in South Florida broke ground on a $375 million marina redevelopment project, according to news reports.

Viking has a 50-year lease to manage the marina, which will eventually have a two-story Riviera Beach Event Center and a $4 million makeover for Bicentennial Park, according to a story in the South Florida Business Journal. Other amenities include shops, restaurants and a promenade. Construction is expected to be completed by next summer.
