August 8, 2015 — A new Key West-style hotel is planned for the site of the former Tierra Verde Resort Marina. Early renderings of the desired hotel were released recently.
Developers of the new marina, including the new Island Grille and Raw Bar, waterfront retail/office space, and a renovated high-and-dry boat storage facility, are seeking a brand hotel chain to build and operate the hotel. The developers have said they have turned down hotelier proposals that did not meet their standards for the look and feel of a Key West resort facility.
No dates for construction have been projected.
