The working waterfront community of Stock Island Marina Village includes a recently completed 100 room hotel, with plans to develop the remaining phases of the site with additional hotel bungalows, various exterior spaces, a didactic landscape and boutique retail spaces. Located in the lower Florida Keys, Stock Island is full of rustic charm with a deep marine history. Cadence is working directly with ownership, the operations team and allied design professionals to extract the site’s potential as a destination marina resort project. Currently in the Master Planning phase, Cadence is creating a vision that will effortlessly connect villagers, guests and staff through the various exterior spaces and experiences. Design elements will focus around a community-centric village to include: lagoon pool, orchid pavilion, waterfront bar and restaurant, artist’s co-op space, dog park, resident’s herb and vegetable garden, exercise trail and event lawn. A marina walk will connect visitors to both the past and present working waterfront with way finding signage and an interpretive trail. The site’s circulation will also connect to existing nearby community spaces and natural marine sanctuaries.
