Dead Watson Island Projects Spring to Life with a Seaplane Terminal, Megayacht Marina, and More

by Sep Niakan | January 19, 2016

Watson Island has been known to attract some strange developers, but has also been known to be a place for developers to exploit public land. However, it looks like some previously dead projects may be coming back to life in the area.

The Chalk seaplane terminal, which is a heliport that has been abandoned for years, plus a marina for megayachts, and a resort that has been put on hold for 14 years, are getting put back on the map.

The seaplane terminal, which is now under new management, is undergoing some revitalization, such as a fix to the facility, an expanded flight schedule, and a new plan to propose to legislators for a new terminal building that will have a public observation area, and restaurant space.

The megayacht marina on the other hand, has been moving along. After years of delays and extensions, Flagstone Development is nearing the completion of the piers, which should be fully operational soon. Additionally, under an agreement with the city, Flagstone must complete the $600 million Island Gardens hotel and retail project to complete their end of the deal.

Other projects in the area are coming to life as well. Watson Island will soon be a new hustling and bustling area of South Florida.
