Florida’s Coastal Cities Rebuild

ft-peirce-floridaIn 2004, hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne ravaged many of Florida’s coastal cities. These hurricanes destroyed houses, cities, and took the lives of many. The devastation and lives lost will never be forgotten. Some cities have struggled to get back on their feet, while others have be able to use this as an opportunity to build new, more durable infrastructure.

Since 2004 Fort Pierce real estate has been working to rebuild and update it’s infrastructure. The Sunshine City has built a new state of the art dock system. This new system is the first in the state to be named Eco-friendly. It has a state of the art Storm Protection System and improved yacht navigation. The dock includes all amenities one would have at home such as, WiFi, laundry facilities, showers, and a bar.

The marina is centrally located and is only a short walk to shopping, restaurants, theaters, and museums. It is also only a short distance to the Bahamas, making this dock a perfect location to store and launch your boat. The Fort Pierce inlet was recently named the “Best all weather inlet on the East Coast”. The inlet and surrounding Indian River Lagoon area provide easy access to snorkeling, fishing, day-long trips.

The hurricanes in 2004 cost cities and families millions of dollars and worse, claimed the lives of many. The damage is extensive enough to still be seen and felt today. Fort Pierce is leading the way with new technology and safer systems. The marina’s new docks were opened on the first of May and featured 127 new slips and an island system to protect them.
