A collection of two-to-three story restaurants and a fish market are coming to a stretch of the Miami River fronting a currently-under-construction self storage and restaurant building called the East Coast Building, according to the developer of both, MV Real Estate Holdings. The new assemblage will be called the Riverside Wharf and is located on a substantial stretch of land between the I-95 overpass and the SW 1st Street bridge. They are planning 5 restaurants for a total of roughly 40,000 square feet, including a raw bar operated by the neighboring Garcia's, a mainstay on the river. At the end of the collection of structures will be a fish market "in which local commercial fishermen would have a venue in which to sell their local seafood catch" according to the developer, which could come straight from boats docked along the river. The project is planned to accomodate up to 20 vessels "of any size, up to megayachts" on its 650 feet of river frontage, so that's a lot of fish.
