Master developer withdraws from Riviera Beach marina area development

A deal in the works between the City of Riviera Beach, Florida, the Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and Viking Developers ended this week when the parties could not come to an agreement on final terms in the public-private partnership for development centered around the marina district.

Discussions to redevelop originally began in 2006, said Viking Chairman Robert T. Healey, Sr. Viking was named master developer for the project.

Viking Developers owns about 50 percent of the commercially developable land in the marina district according to Healey and the company intends to continue moving forward by expanding Viking Yacht Service Center, the Riviera Beach Maritime Academy and other properties.

“We’ll focus on our own projects and continue to work together,” Tyler Alten, vice president of Viking Developers, said.
