Compass by Margaritaville planned for Melbourne FL

A Margaritaville complex featuring a hotel, marina, restaurants and a 20,000-square-foot outdoor entertainment venue is planned along the Indian River Lagoon in Melbourne.

The target site is the former Coral Bay-Intracoastal Marina property off U.S. 1, next to the Marina Towers office building just north of NASA Boulevard.

Early cost estimate: $60 million to $65 million. Developer Harry Mirpuri hopes the hotel opens for guests by late 2024 as the sole Margaritaville-themed property in the Space Coast market.

The riverfront complex would feature a Compass by Margaritaville hotel with 145 rooms and suites and a rooftop Salty Rim Bar & Grill, a pool, a 227-slip marina with permanent and transient dockage, a 10,000-square-foot casual beach-style eatery, a 10,000-square-foot “polished casual” restaurant, a marina store and a parking garage.

 A 20,000-square-foot event lawn and stage would anchor the resort, hosting musical acts, simulcast Margaritaville concerts, art shows, food truck nights and other events.
