The Melbourne International Airport is located only 2 miles west and Port Canaveral is located 20 miles north of the site. Melbourne is the employment-hub of south Brevard County serving as a home to well-known companies such as Harris Corporation, Northrup Grumman, Embraer and Rockwell International.

Drive time demographics of 5, 15 & 25 minutes from the site are attached (See Exhibit “H”).


Existing utilities to the site include:
-    8” water line located in utility easement running north-south along the east side of the property

-    Electric provided by Florida Power & Light (FPL)

On October 30, 2013, TLC Engineering provided a preliminary structural evaluation of the existing seawall and found that the majority of the seawall was in need of repair or replacement (Exhibit “I”).

Dry Stack:    
On June 23, 2015, TLC Engineering provided a preliminary structural evaluation of the boat storage facility to assess its current condition and determine the extent of any expected or recommended repairs or remediation for future use for the same purpose (See Exhibit “J”).  The report concluded that the boat storage structure is in generally good condition and can be restored to a serviceable condition based upon appropriate remediation as outlined in the report.

The environmental audit of the property, conducted in 2013, involved a study of the upland soils and the soils located on the submerged bottom, as well as water and groundwater samples. The auditors paid special attention to contaminants that might exist as a result of underground storage tanks, a gas station and a marina, all having been located on the property. No contaminants above state guidelines indicating a concern were determined to exist with the exception of a few substances in monitoring wells that could require further examination. The auditors concluded that when appropriate standards were used to determine the concentration of these few substances, based on their previous experience, the groundwater contaminant levels detected on the site would likely not be significant enough to necessitate remediation even if these levels represent the maximum levels on the site. Copies of the Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments are available (See Exhibit “K”).

Linear Park:    
This site is conveniently and centrally located along what will be the City’s future waterfront linear park. The linear park, when complete, will provide for a 2-mile pedestrian walkway along the Indian River. The City will require an easement to provide for the continuation of access through the site via a sidewalk, boardwalk, or other similar promenade.
