Sunny Isles Beach Pier Opens After An Eight-Year Wait
Finally, another blog post and the Sunny Isles ‘Newport Hotel Pier’ is reopening after 8 long years!
After a long wait, the completely rebuilt Newport Fishing Pier will open for business this summer, replacing the historic pier destroyed by Hurricane Wilma in 2005. The $6.5 million project was completed using public and private sector money through an agreement between The Cornfeld Group and the City of Sunny Isles Beach. The total proportions of the pier project are impressive, with the complete length stretching to 776 feet, 610 of that over the water, and containing 11,593 square feet of usable space. The pier features a lifeguard observation area, a public fishing concession, and a world-class restaurant (opening in late 2013).
Join your neighbors and city officials for the ribbon-cutting celebration to open the completely renovated Newport Fishing Pier. It is sure to be a fun time, beginning with a SNIP of the scissors and ending with a BANG as fireworks are displayed at the end of the pier! This free event will feature activities for children and musical entertainment.
The City of Sunny Isles Beach is proud to announce the Grand Opening on June 15, 2013, of the only public fishing pier in Miami-Dade County, the Newport Fishing Pier. The Celebration is next Saturday so mark your calendars with the information below..
The celebration will be held from 7:00 – 9:00pm at Pier Park at 16501 Collins Avenue. A free community shuttle bus will run before, during, and after the event to transport residents to and from Pier Park.
