Introducing Our Proposed
Aquarium Plaza Resort
Although several years in the future, APVG and the CBO Foundation will jointly develop its proposed Aquarium Plaza Resort and Conference Center (Aquarium Plaza), a diverse, self-sustaining mixed use development featuring a 400 all suite resort hotel and Spa, 18 hole golf course, 135 residential apartments, retail village, performing arts center and 116 luxury senior living unit project. We are considering
sites on Maui, Hawaii, in California and Las Vegas for the project.
The above conceptual renderings where developed by APVG for a desired West Maui, Hawaii location to better define the features and projected construction cost estimates for its proposed development. No land has been secured, and we have not discussed the project with anyone on Maui as of this date. The recent CoronaVirus has caused us to scrap our Maui plans and focus more on a California vineyard-like development, or alternate smaller design within Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Aquarium Plaza Hotel will serve as the base for The Sharks legacy Marissa's Reef For Heavenly Helpers aquatic memorial exhibit, consisting of a 100 foot round, by 80 foot tall saltwater aquarium. It will be free to visit and located in the open air entry lobby of the hotel (as seen in the conceptual elevation below).
As seen in the above rendering, a full clear tube walkway is designed to encircle the inside base of the Aquarium, to allow
locals and guests to experience the underwater beauty of Marissa's Reef. The proposed exhibit will offer five (5) rows of seating around 180 degrees of the aquarium tank, facing the sunset towards the offshore islands of Molokai and Lanai.
The Aquarium exhibit honors The Shark's first Granddaughter Marissa, born on his birthday in 1998. Sadly, at the age of seven she was swept to her death in an August 2005 flash flood in Carefree Arizona. In addition, the saltwater Aquarium will also feature over 200,000 reef fish, turtles, stingrays and other reef life each designated a SpiritFish, named after and honoring other children lost due to natural events.
No guarantee can be made that APVG will be successful in our efforts to build the Aquarium Plaza Resort or Marissa's Reef as designed. Once an alternate site has been located, a more defined project layout will be rendered.
