The operator is set to start a $5.2 million renovation and expansion of a riverfront marina in downtown Bradenton.

The nine-month project at the Twin Dolphin Marina will add 129 new slips, including 86 for vessels up to 50 feet long and 15 for vessels up to 105 feet long.

The operator is Hugh Miller, who owns a restaurant near the city-owned Twin Dolphin Marina and has a long-term lease to run the marina, which is located along the Manatee River.

Bradenton’s city government will cover part of the cost of the marina project with $1.3 million in grants from the boating infrastructure grant program of the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Miller’s real estate business, Don Miller Development Corp., will pay for the rest of the cost of the marina project, which will entail dredging and upgrading the marina’s floating docks.

The marina project is one of two real estate developments that will change the look of downtown Bradenton over the next 12 months. The marina renovation and expansion project will coincide with construction of a Springhill Suites by Marriott hotel in the 100 block of Old Main Street in Bradenton.
