Miami marina reopens after $25 million renovation

Westrec Marinas held the grand opening and dedication of the Haulover Marine Center, a $25 million renovation project.

Westrec Marinas held the grand opening and dedication of the Haulover Marine Center, a $25 million renovation project, on Tuesday with representatives of Miami-Dade County Parks in Florida.

Miami-Dade County speakers included director of parks, recreation and open spaces George Navarette and District 4 Commissioner Sally A. Heyman.

Westrec president Bill Anderson and vice president Gary Groenewold discussed the project’s highlights.

Midnight Express vice president Harris Glaser spoke about the Americans with Disabilities Act and accessibility planning and implementation at the center.

“Miami-Dade Parks is proud of its partnership with Westrec Marinas. We look at this new facility as a revitalized park space, and its completion moves our community closer toward creating a parks and open spaces system that is more accessible, seamless, beautiful, equitable, and sustainable, with multiple benefits to better neighborhood living which are the guiding principles of the Open Space Master Plan,” Navarrete said. “We invite everyone to visit Haulover Marine Center and see all that this park has to offer.”

“Throughout the U.S., Westrec is a trusted resource for local governments and municipalities to undertake projects such as Haulover,” Anderson said. “Westrec is highly efficient in developing workable deliverables and creative in finding solutions for architectural, engineering, logistics and use models. We meet the needs of all involved and ultimately achieve what is in the best interest of the communities a facility serves and its guests.”
