Mitigation has begun, says Island Gardens developer Flagstone Group, in preparation for construction of its megayacht marina. This means the relocation of corals and sponges on the bay floor, which should take 60-90 days, and then dredging will start. The project has been dead in the water for years, so this start, 13 years after the city inked their lease deal with the developers, is met with a bit of skepticism. This Miami Today article is practically oozing with it. The sight of a dredge barge floating down Government Cut towards the megaproject's Watson Island site in a few months will be a welcome sight indeed, if it happens.
