Miami Marine Stadium Restoration


The Miami Marine Stadium was built in 1963 and is situated on scenic Virginia Key. It is considered a singular and distinctive example of a civic mid-century modern marine structure. Despite hosting a wide variety of events and performances throughout its history, it currently sits unused. After Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the stadium was declared an unsafe structure and was abandoned. It became a haven for graffiti artists and taggers, creating the unique aesthetic that currently adorns the structure. The land around the stadium hosts regular large-scale events and races.

Design and permitting for the future renovation was completed by the architecture firm Richard J. Heisenbottle and Associates.

At this time, the city is conducting a business analysis for the future operations of the stadium.


Restoration of the Miami Marine Stadium includes complex construction activities involving structural repair(s) with materials, features and character as it appeared in the 1960s. The project also includes the creation of a 3-acre plaza.


Currently working in Phase I, which consists in infrastructure repair of nine (9) piles and two (2) caps renovation.
