Viking has been terminated as the master developer of the Riviera Beach Waterfront, according to a representative for the city.

The CRA council sealed the deal by a unanimous vote to terminate Viking as the master developer.

The $375 million waterfront project includes plans for shops, restaurants and a hotel.

The council has asked the Riviera Beach project staff to come back in 30 days with proposals for continuing the project without Viking as the master developer, including suggestions for one or more new private developers. 

The Riviera Beach CRA project is still on track to open a $30 million event venue on the waterfront this spring which has been in the works for more than a year and a half.
