I was there three weeks ago and this was one of the few places that was not being worked on. I'm afraod that they may have to reset some of the pilings as the ones at the very tip were swaying with the tide.

Thanks Pjk...I'm getting married there in April and I was told that it would be completed by mid-January so I just wanted to get a pulse.

I'd call first. I'm with Pjk. Doesn't look like much progress is being made....

They claimed to be rebuilding quickly but....

Ocean Key also ownes Little Palm Island (Noble House Resorts). As of now Little Palm is not going to be reopened till Feb-March. Don't know how this will effect the rebuild of sunset pier.

I was told it was basically a total loss and will have to be rebuilt (not just repaired).

If anyone is to use it this spring, I think you need a backup plan.

I just returned last night from a great stay at the Ocean Key. I do not think the Pier will be completed by Mid January, but that is only my opinion. It is a total loss and they will have to completely rebuild according to the front desk. They have started rebuilding, I saw the workers beginning construction on Monday.

yep, it was Rita. The poor dock took the brunt of it...most other damage has been repaired/cleaned up.

How long ago did you work there? Do you remember Heather Wagner?

Does anyone have any pictures of the destruction of the pier?
