The St. Augustine Beach sand renourishment project taking place is scheduled to be completed by the end of June, just in time for the 4th of July holiday. Work has been completed on the beach from Pope Road to the St. Augustine Beach Pier. The project will continue to inch closer towards 9th street where the work will then be completed. Check out the following article in The St. Augustine Record for more details by clicking HERE and view the following video.
It is no longer a secret as Hilton Worldwide recently announce an agreement with Key International, that Embassy Suites Hotels will be opening an upscale 180 room (all suites) adjacent to the St. Augustine Beach Pier by late 2017. This is the property site where the former St. Augustine Beachfront Resort was located and has recently been torn down and removed.
In addition to the 180 upscale suites, the new hotel will feature 5,500 square feet of meeting space, and out door pool and their signature atrium environment. This will be the 8th Hilton Worldwide hotel in the St. Augustine area and a great addition to the beach that has seen a recent increase in new business construction.
We want to thank St. Augustine Social Magazine for the information and encourage you to visit their web-article to learn more about the new Embassy Suites Hotel coming to St. Augustine Beach, near the St. Augustine Beach Pier by clicking here.
I spent the last weekend in and around St. Augustine Beach especially near the St. Augustine Beach Pier. I noticed the beach and Pier were closed around the Pier parking access due to the current inlet dredging and beach renourishment project as well as some much needed Pier renovations. I also noticed that the City has been relocating beach-goers to the North end beach from the Pier. I was all ready to Blog about this issue when I noticed a recent news report from the local station, First Coast News, and found their story and video posted on their website.
First Coast News reporter Jessica Clark did a great job reporting the current status of as I am attaching a link to their site which provides a great update of the project (make sure you check out the video posted in the story):
It looks like another happening of large pipes, tractors and off shore barges are heading our way as the Army Corp of Engineers begins another round of beach renourishment on February 16th running through mid-April. The project will cover about 2.3 miles of shoreline between Anastasia State Park south to the Bermuda Run development.
