Would anyone be able to give an update on the pier? Am visting Key West for a wedding in june and hope the pier is finsihed soon to enjoy.
Any update is appreciated.
Last I heard they were having to rebuild it with a view to re-opening in May 2018
We were there last week. Our waitress told us that they were going to tear it down after the speedboat races and then rebuild a concrete pier. Opening around summer 2018.
Say it ain't so. A concrete pier? That would change the feeling of the location.
I have to agree with pjk. Although a concrete pier will be far more sustainable, it would certainly change the feel for me. Either way, I'm so glad they are rebuilding!
She did make a point to tell us that the railings would still be wood. I think they are just tired of rebuilding it.
a concrete pier ? ugh .. that just ruined it for me . was looking forward to sitting there again come may 6 - 16and until now I was so confident that it just needed a few repairs . a concrete pier is a big old "count me out" :(
well and it sounds like it may not be finished anyhow .. *sadface*
I guess some people might find it comforting that the "credit card traps" between the wooden planks will be gone ...Edited: 10 November 2017, 00:34
Boy, I wish I could post a photo on this forum. I took pics of that very spot in '05 after that blow and it wasn't pretty.
