Published on : Saturday, July 2, 2016

royal caribbean intBroadway Malyan, known for its creative thinking and innovative design, is set to construct a 17,000 sq ft.  world class cruise terminal at Port Miami, after an agreement was signed between Miami-Dade County and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. It will serve as a homeport to the mammoth 5400 passenger Oasis-class ship as well as other Royal Caribbean International Cruises. The agreement will be effective from 6th July, 2016.

 

 

This public-private partnership will have an estimated economic impact of $500 million and generate approximately 400 jobs, said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez.

 

 

The terminal has been nicknamed the “Crown of Miami” because of its distinct shape. The design evokes the points of the symbolic headgear when viewed from the water; the ‘M’ of Miami when viewed from the east or western approaches; and a sense of waves rising or ships passing when viewed from the terminal side. At night, the terminal’s facade will be lit ensuring that the building makes a striking impression and providing a dynamic addition to the PortMiami landscape.

 

 

A 20,000 sq ft. Innovation Lab to come up is also set to come up in the new terminal.

 

 

It is anticipated that Royal Caribbean will generate at least 1.8 million passengers at Port Miami as compared to the earlier 75,000 passengers approximately. This will represent no less than 30% of the port’s projected passenger traffic.

 

 

Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. said that, this new port will be one of the iconic buildings of Port Miami.
