Pier 66 Redevelopment, Florida

Pier 66 Marina is located in Ft. Lauderdale at the Hyatt Regency Resort on the Intracoastal Waterway adjacent to the deep water in Port Everglades.

Coastal Systems designed the redevelopment of the marina to accommodate a range of vessels with seasonal slip mixes ranging from 80 to 99 vessels. The marina is designed to accommodate large megayachts in excess of 250 feet long during the yachting season in South Florida, but the docks are designed with flexibility in the utilities to accommodate smaller vessels depending on the market demand. Coastal Systems designed the marine structures and the utilities infrastructure for the marina. Concrete fixed docks were designed to moor the larger vessels along A and F docks within the basin and to avoid seagrass impacts. Mooring hardware and fenders were designed for the larger docks to accommodate the larger yachts. Floating docks were designed for Piers B and C within the marina basin to moor vessels between 50 and 90 feet long. These docks were designed to avoid impacts to seagrass within the existing marina fairways, and design criteria was prepared for the floating docks including wind, waves, tidal current, and storm surge. Replacement bulkheads, totaling 2,600 feet of shoreline, were also designed throughout the marina. The bulkheads were coordinated with the landscape architect to provide a promenade along the waterfront, and the bulkheads along F Dock also provide mooring for vessels ranging from 60 to 90 feet long. Marina utilities were planned and designed for the facility.
Coastal Systems worked with marina management to design and specify shore power pedestals to meet the requirements of the seasonal slip mixes, yet also to provide 3-phase power at 480V for the superyachts. Fire protection and domestic water services were designed, along with high speed fueling and communications. Utility routing design was completed to coordinate all of the utilities along the fixed and floating docks. Coastal Systems completed the environmental permitting for the marina redevelopment through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and Broward County. Key environmental issues addressed through the permitting process included the avoidance of impacts to seagrass and water quality criteria compliance.of 1997.
