A $37.5 million expansion of PortMiami's Cruise Terminal F breaks ground today with Munilla Construction Management holding a kick-off ceremony later this morning.
The project’s initial phase features the reconfiguration and renovation of the three-story passenger terminal. Phase 2 involves constructing a three-story addition east of the preexisting terminal to accommodate “embarkation functions such as support offices, waiting areas and restrooms,” per the release, while Phase 3 is the building of “a third-level sterile concourse corridor connecting the existing terminal with the new addition.”
The renovation allows for the capability of handling larger ships, mainly those from MCS Cruises, and is expected to boost revenue by over $3 million.
The project is slated for completion in December of 2017.
Royal Caribbean is also amidst expansion at PortMiami, including the construction of a new cruise terminal, which is expected to cost $200 million.
