R.J. Heisenbottle architects unveil final designs for Miami Marine Stadium historic
Restoration

MIAMI, FL - The R.J. Heisenbottle Architects restoration team has completed
the Design Development Phase for the historic restoration of the Miami Marine
Stadium on Virginia Key, Miami and is pleased to unveil the final design renderings.

Following a February 8, 2019 Notice to Proceed from the City of Miami, the team has entered into the Construction Documents Phase and expects to have Bid & Permit drawings completed within the next six (6) months.  Permitting for the stadium is expected to be completed by February 2020, Bidding and Award completed by May 2020. Thereafter construction is expected to take 24 months and be completed in the first half of 2022.

 “The completed designs for the historic restoration of the iconic 6,000 seat
waterfront stadium are a result of community input received at our April 2017
Visioning Workshop and a close working relationship with City staff,” states
stadium restoration architect Richard J. Heisenbottle, FAIA.   The Marine Stadium was first listed on the local City of Miami Register of Historic Places on October 7th, 2008. On February 8th, 2018 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The project has the strong support of both the National Trust and the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation, as well as, local community preservation organizations. Recommended activities for the stadium and basin included marine and boating, entertainment, and community events for sports, fitness, educational and nature.

The proposed site plan calls for redesigned vehicular and pedestrian entry, an events plaza, waterfront dining and concessions, a completely renovated and restored stadium, and a floating stage with the Miami skyline as a backdrop.  Additional amenities will include dynamic digital LED projection displays and state of the art audio/visual theatrical equipment. 
 
Restoration efforts will not only maintain the historic architectural characteristics of
the stadium, but also add strategic components necessary to make the restored
facility capable of serving a wider variety of uses.  The City has recently issued an RFP for operations and management of the Miami Marine Stadium Complex.

The brutalist style stadium, designed by Cuban American architect Hilario Candela, FAIA was the popular site of powerboat races and concerts for three decades but has been closed since suffering extensive damage from Hurricane Andrew in 1992.  The restoration methodology will address the current deteriorated condition of the stadium, including concrete repairs, installation of a corrosion mitigation systems, use of a special historic concrete repair mix, graffiti removal and concrete cleaning.   

There have been many discussions from interested stakeholders about whether the Miami Marine Stadium can be successfully restored into a safe structure capable of once again being an iconic entertainment venue. “After extensive analysis and evaluation, I am pleased to say the answer to that question is an emphatic ‘yes’, says the restoration architect Richard J. Heisenbottle, FAIA. “Having the honor and unique opportunity to work alongside the stadium’s original architect, Hilario Candela, FAIA, there is no doubt that this project will be a dazzling attraction for the City of Miami and South Florida.”
