Viance takes a walk on the boardwalk

The Florida panhandle destination of Destin completed a harbor boardwalk makeover that used 200,000 board ft. of Southern Pine, 1,080 treated piles and 85,000 board ft. of Ecolife Stabilized Weather-Resistant Wood, according to Viance.

The boardwalk is part of a multi-year, $90 million capital improvement program for the 400-acre Destin Harbor District that includes a public park and plaza, roadway improvements, and land acquisition as part of the initial $15-million phase. 

The new boardwalk runs for more than 1/2 mile from the end of Harbor Walk Village east to the Destin Yacht Club.

“When people come to Destin, we want them to be focused on the beauty that surrounds them,” said Christopher Kollwitz, director of marketing for Viance. “The boats, the shops, the sand, the water -- and the new and attractive boardwalk that brings them all together.”

All materials used to construct the boardwalk were treated and supplied by Cox Industries.
