A Little Piece of Jimmy Buffett is coming to Melbourne, FL Late 2025

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Waves Realty BK3246853

A Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville Resort is finally coming to Melbourne, FL!

Compass Landing by Margaritaville will feature a seven-story, 146-room hotel with a two-story restaurant, a rooftop bar called The Salty Rim, a 221-slip boat marina, a 400 seat stage for entertainment events, a four-level parking garage and a public riverwalk along US-1 in Melbourne.

The project was delayed in March because of some site difficulties, but it is back on tract and scheduled to open in late 2025. The 100 million dollar riverfront complex is in the spot that was once occupied by Shooters Riverfront restaurant and marina.

Hello Jeffrey - it seems the searchin' for that long lost shaker of salt will be a bit easier to find in Melbourne Florida.   After all, 2025 will be here before you know it.
