Miami River project OK’d

The latest plants for the former Miami Mega Yacht Marina on the Miami River got another approval in early March. According to news reports, SeaVault will include 14 covered slips for yachts 150-230 feet, each with three-level crew quarters and for sale. The site is also designed to include a clubhouse, tennis court and cold storage building.

First approved a year ago, the latest designs were passed by the Miami River Commission. Construction is planned to begin in early 2016.

The marina at 583 N.W. 24th Ave. is designed to have a Kallwal roof system, which allows natural light, according to Miami Today newspaper. The architect is Miami-based Bermello, Ajamil & Partners, which has worked on the Northwest 12th Avenue Miami River Bridge project, and drawbridge projects for the Venetian Causeway and 79th Street Causeway.
