After starting work on a new seawall and the dredging of Biscayne Bay for Deep Harbour Marina in 2015, Flagstone Property Group has applied for foundation permits for Island Gardens, according to Miami Today.
The foundation permit will allow for the construction of more permanent structures for Deep Harbour Marina, a fish market and a portion of the retail.
The Deep Harbour Marina opened earlier this year and can hold 50 super yachts up to 550 feet in length.
Flagstone Property Group hopes to start work on the main resort in 2017 on the city owned 6.5 acre site.
After adding the docks and building a new seawall at Island Gardens in November, the first phase of the development, the deep harbor marina, is ready to open. The marina can hold up to 50 super yachts up to 550 feet in length.
The luxury Island Gardens on Watson Island is being developed by Mehmet Bayraktar of Flagstone Property Group and will have two hotels and a residential tower that will cost $1 billion. Construction is slated to begin in the fourth quarter of this year with completion in 2018.
