Stock Island Resort & Marina
Stock Island is a 19.3-acre island on the Atlantic Ocean, just north of Key West, that serves the local fishing and small boating community. Its owner sold the existing boat slips and rebuilt the piers to finance the construction of a mixed-use marina/yacht club/ hotel/retail project that became a destination for mega yachts as well as sport boats and fishing vessels. It also includes three parking structures, a ferry terminal, and housing for fishing crews. The hotel has 210 lodge units comprising smaller (450 SF) rooms and larger (600 SF) rooms as well as a ballroom, meeting rooms, offices, and an event area. The yacht club was designed more exclusively than the hotel and offers a superior menu of amenities to guests of its 88 units.
The project was anchored by the marina which included a boat yard for maintenance, repair, and fueling as well as approximately 365 dry docks and 300 wet slips. The retail community of fishing-oriented shops has 68,706 SF of space to accommodate units ranging in size from big box to smaller stores. They line the parking structures which are designed to hold 769 spaces. The marina also comprises 42 low income housing units for boat crew and eight executive units. Promenades on both the land and water sides of the marina facilitated access and sociability.
