Florida Keys developer Pritam Singh plans to start building a 199-room hotel on the site of a recreational vehicle park and marina in Marathon in May.
The hotel will be a 10-building cluster where a majority of the rooms will overlook the ocean. The property will feature a pool bar, restaurant and four-acre beach.
Singh also plans to break ground in February for 30 two-bedroom units of ”workforce housing” in an apartment building on the grounds of the 24-acre Knights Key RV Resort and Marina, which he acquired in 2015.
The developer will require recreational vehicle owners at the RV park to vacate their spaces by May.
“As a single development, this [RV park redevelopment] is the largest in the last 20 to 30 years in the Keys,” Noah Singh, son of Pritam Singh, told the Florida Keynoter.[Florida Keynoter] – Mike Seemuth
