Regulatory Permitting
South Beach Marriott Hotel, Florida

The nine-story Marriott hotel and understructure garage project included the remodeling of an existing historical two-story hotel. In addition to the new structure and remodeling of the existing hotel, the property included a single story retail building, swimming pool, spa, a walking trail, dune restoration and dune crossover/beach access structure.

Coastal Systems International, Inc. obtained the construction, coastal construction, and marine turtle lighting permits for this project. We worked with the Department of Environmental Protection, providing analysis and other back-up, in order to ensure that the shear wall percentage and impervious area necessary for the proposed design were approved. In addition, a 100-year Storm Impact Analysis was performed to evaluate storm recession and storm wave impacts associated with the return period. For the beach/dune system, we designed a cross over and analyzed the potential impacts of the proposed construction.
