Project Location:  

Oleta River State Park, Florida

Construction Completed: 

2002

Project Elements: 

G&A worked in conjunction with an architect to provide civil engineering, environmental permitting and construction administration services for the Blue Marlin Marina Restoration Project, located in the City of North Miami, Florida. G&A developed a site plan that mimicked the original Blue Marlin Smoke House that was in operation in the early 1930’s through the late 1970’s. The newly developed site consists of three buildings, parking facilities, bath houses, elevated boardwalks, fishing platforms, canoe launches, finger piers, and approximately 340 LF of restored Oleta River shoreline. G&A successfully provided environmental permitting services through ten different regulatory agencies within a four-month period. G&A was able to successfully obtain all the required permits, and assisted the FPS in receiving a $500,000 FIND Grant that was used in the construction of the project.
