More Than $1 Million Already Reflected In Cocoa Beach Pier Restoration and Enhancements

BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA – Westgate Resorts lit up a new, 27-foot tall sign as the iconic, welcoming centerpiece for guests at the new Cocoa Beach Pier.

The “Light Up the Pier” event was held Wednesday with the Illumination ceremony and a community celebration party.

Designated a historic landmark, the sign is a nostalgic tribute to the Pier and the Space Coast’s history, for which the original 50-year-old sign was the design inspiration.

The Cocoa Beach Pier has been an iconic Brevard County beach destination since 1962.

A significant milestone in Westgate’s multi-million dollar Cocoa Beach Pier improvement program, the sign is among several renovations planned to protect the legacy of the Pier and make it a premier dining and entertainment destination for residents and tourists.


Pier upgrades will feature the introduction of several of Westgate’s unique dining concepts, including the award-wining Drafts Sports Bar and a new fine dining seafood concept.

The entire project is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.

More than $1 million is already reflected in Pier restoration and enhancements.
