Hawks Cay Resort and Marina

Duck Key, Monroe County, Florida

PR&A was retained to provide a property condition assessment and an environmental site assessment of the Hawks Cay Resort, which consists of a 177-key hotel, two conference centers, recreation center, spa, and marina on approximately 42.22 acres. The 85-slip marina has many amenities including a Dock Side Store, two waterfront restaurants, showers, restrooms, and a laundry area. In addition to a complete assessment of the resort buildings, PR&A assessed the marina layout. We obtained cross sections of the marina basin and profile lines longitudinally along the interior channel and entrance channel to navigable water in Hawk Channel. In addition, water levels were monitored during the survey for the tide corrections of the depth. We recommended a feasibility study to redevelop the marina as well as a master plan to evaluate potential slip mixes and regulatory issues. The existing waterfront is configured to create an area of high energy and activity, and we determined that there is potential for additional improvements to help transform the marina into a waterfront village “destination.”
