New Renderings Of Pier 5 Entertainment Venue Under Construction At Bayside

New renderings have been released of Pier 5, an open-air entertainment and social gathering venue at Bayside.

The venue is being built by Breakwater Hospitality Group, and will be a sister property to The Wharf Miami and The Wharf Fort Lauderdale.

Pier 5 will be open seven days a week from morning till evening, and will feature a newly renovated open-air concept that is inclusive for all ages with signature deck games; multiple shaded lounge areas and bars; and entertainment space.

The venue is being named for the fishing pier which stood at what is now Bayside Marketplace in downtown Miami.

In the 1940s and 1950s, Pier 5 was a fish market, tourist attraction and a backdrop for sport fishing. Kite fishing was said to have been invented there.

Really nice. I hope this evolution from trashy touristy 80’s mall to upscale waterfront shops and restaurants continues

It just went from tourist mall to tourist restaurant. I wish there was more public green space in the design for people to actually meet and walk.

Really nice. The whole Bayside needs a bit revamping, especially now that more sophisticated people would be in the area as it grows.

Have you been to Bayside lately? Trust me when I say you will immediately feel elitist after leaving.

Amazing! This is the open-air music and entertainment venue I had hoped for on the riverfront, but along the Bay is even better! Bayside needs a face-lift anyway. As if Miami was not already to most amazing place to live, it’s just becoming even more exciting.

Just went to Europe, Asia and South America – all beautiful destinations but wouldn’t live anywhere else other than Miami and happy to see it’s getting even better.

And people who in “Europe, Asia and South America” say the same thing about where they live.

By looking at the drawings it looks that this venue will become a great success.

Looking great! I’m most excited for the small Amphitheater, which hopefully will showcase local talent.

Nothing against reggaeton, latin, EDM and hip-hop, but it would be great to have other music options too–classic rock, jazz, blues, folk, singer-songwriter, alternative, funk, classical, country, opera, broadway, pop, etc. I personally like music that is uplifting and sophisticated.

Would be great to see a huge Christmas tree lighting, with wholesome Christmas songs and dressed-up dancers for families to get in the spirit.

Is the solution to build pricey new restaurant venues at Bayside and “clean it up”?

What if we invested in spent making the park really nice and beautiful. Somewhere that people of ALL income levels would want to visit. Kind of like South Pointe park. I don’t hear people complaining about that park. Because its fucking beautiful.

Build luxurious parks. Not fucking restaurant venues.

Leave your neighborhood that has parks just to come here and frolic around in a park?

Um?..

The park is beautiful, but the customer-base is less so. We need to bring in customers, so businesses can thrive, as long as we maintain the beauty of the park and natural landscape.

Also, South Pointe park is charming for it’s natural aesthetic and lack of manmade structures, but they need to update the facilities. The fencing is rusty, people climb through and get hurt, and the public facilities that are there could be upgraded.

I do believe it could start to improve Bayside as it’s still just a place for the cruise tourists to stop and check out. Spend sometime during the week on the mornings and you will see all the tourist buses picking up and dropping off at Bayside.
If they continue to build places like this it will help attract more locals instead of the tourist trap places like Margaritaville.

Looks like they would have to take out a lot of boat slips for this.

Much better than Arquitectonica/Berowitz’s gunmetal cold revamp of Bayside proposed several years ago which never happened.

It looks great!

Perfect for cruise ship passengers and Heat fans. But will it be a draw compared to World Center?

Hopefully it’s inclusive to all tax-brackets and incomes as well.
