Originally built in 1962, Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier (originally known as “Canaveral Pier") was constructed with more than 2.5 miles of boardwalk planks and 270 pilings, each 40 feet in length. Throughout the years, it has been a favorite of both locals and tourists and undergone many changes.
Since joining the Westgate portfolio in 2014, David Siegel and Jim Gissy have invested over $4 million transforming and redesigning Cocoa Beach Pier into a family-friendly, world-class tourist attraction, and making it one of the hottest spots to visit in the Sunshine State.
“A large part of my family grew up in the Cocoa Beach area and we have many wonderful memories of the time spent here. We are honored to become the custodians of this magnificent landmark and we are fortunate to have the resources necessary to ensure that the legacy of the pier is protected and renovated in a first-class manner.”
“I'm very excited to partner with David Siegel on this amazing project. He is one of the most successful businessmen in the state of Florida and it was my lucky day when I started working for him over 30 years ago. I'm thankful to have the opportunity to work with him on this iconic Florida landmark
