Hooter’s At John’s Pass Village Nearing Completion

A new Hooter’s restaurant will be opening at John’s Pass Village. The new location will occupy 6k square feet on the 3rd level of the popular boardwalk attraction, between the Friendly Fisherman and Bubba Gump Shrimp Company restaurants. Indoor and outdoor seating will be available. A February opening is planned.

Madeira Beach May Allow Higher Density

The proposal is an effort to boost tourism which creates jobs, supports businesses and generates sales tax and other revenue for local governments. Many Madeira Beach businesses, like those at John’s Pass Village, depend greatly on tourism.

City officials have come up with a plan to increase densities in area zoned for tourist accommodations to 100 units per acre for parcels up to 3 acres and 125 units for larger parcels. The proposal is similar to the “Beach by Design Plan” in Clearwater Beach, which has brought new major hotel developments to Clearwater Beach.

Higher densities may also allow hotels and motels to have restaurants on their properties, which are few and far between on the beach side of Gulf Blvd.

Madeira Beach Condo Extension Approved

The developer of the Beach Club of Madeira condominium project at 14002 Gulf Blvd. was given a 1 year time extension to begin construction at the October Board of Commissioners meeting. The delay was requested due to problems with proposed fire ingress and egress.

The Beach Club of Madeira is a 7 story 13 unit project, which was originally approved as a Planned Development Project in January 2007.

New Condo Project Proposed For Johns Pass

MADEIRA BEACH – Developer Joe Dagastino presented plans at ta public meeting for a $15 million, 80-room hotel at John’s Pass Village.
The hotel would be built on a 1.43-acre site on 129th Avenue currently being used as a parking lot.
The five-story, 14,244-square-foot building would face 129th Avenue with 42 parking spaces underneath at ground level. Another nine spaces would be available nearby on the property. It will have a swimming pool on the second floor and a breakfast area in the lobby. Financing has yet to be finalized. Dagostino and his partners have built other successful projects locally including La Vistana in Redington Shores, Bella Rosa on Sand Key and La Contessa in Redington Beach.
The plans must be approved by city officials, which will take at least 4 months, and construction would take between 9 and 11 months.
