Construction of Terminal V in Miami has been underway for some time, but Virgin has decided to move forward with the new base in PortMiami.
The inaugural ceremony of the construction of the new infrastructure of Richard Branson’s company ended a few hours ago.
The ceremony was attended by Virgin Voyages CEO Tom McAlpin, Port Director Juan Kuryla and Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, all wearing typical Virgin red helmets, brandishing shovels marked “Make Ship Happen “.
Pier V in Miami was built specifically to house the four ships of the company: today there is Scarlet Lady ready for operations, but Valiant Lady, the other unit built in the Genoese docks of Fincantieri, should soon be delivered.
The terminal is located on the north-west side of the port, not far from the main terminal which caters to all the major cruise lines.
Once completed, the Virgin facility will rise on a volume of 100,000 square feet: while during the day the palm trees are the main focus, in the evening the famous company logo will be mirrored on the city skyline.
