Contractors have filed $15.8 million in mechanics liens on the stalled $300 million Royal Caribbean Cruises headquarters expansion in Miami, according to Miami-Dade County public records.
The liens had an unpaid balance of about $15.6 million as of Aug. 26, according to the records, indicated by the search results here.
Construction Dive reported that Baker Concrete Construction has the largest active lien against the Royal Caribbean project, located at the Port of Miami, in the amount of almost $11.7 million, followed by Kenneth Brest, a sub-subcontractor hired by Baker. Brest has filed liens totaling almost $2.7 million. Other active lienholders are Gancedo Lumber, which claims it is owed $84,434, and Keller North America, which says it is owed more than $1.1 million.
Project developer CBRE and general contractor Plaza Construction announced the start of construction on what Royal Caribbean characterized as Miami’s “first true corporate campus” last summer. In March, however, Royal Caribbean announced it had halted construction due to the coronavirus pandemic.
