This includes continuing to take personal responsibility by wearing a facial covering, washing your hands often, practicing a safe social distance, and taking extra precautions when in group settings. Everyone’s cooperation and consideration will help keep our community safe as we experience an increase in cases in our region. Learn more at sibfl.net/coronavirus.

Experience Gateway Center
Gateway Center, our new elite facility located at Gateway Park, 151 Sunny Isles Blvd, is now open to Sunny Isles Beach Resident ID cardholders. At the Center, residents may sample a selection of diverse programs, seniors have a dedicated space to gather, and soon you will be able to host your next high-end event.
Your Sunny Isles Beach Resident ID Card is your all-access pass to Gateway Center. Be sure to renew or apply for your card now, so you are ready to take part in all that Gateway Center has to offer.
Gateway Center, located at Gateway Park is a new 15,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility built specifically for the usage and enjoyment of residents. The space was designed with the vision of providing an elite facility for residents to learn new skills by sampling a selection of diverse programs, for teens to meet in a safe setting without their parents, and for seniors to gather for social activities. Additionally, Gateway Center will be available as a high-end rental space for events and gatherings.
When you enter the facility, you will be greeted at the serene reception area. Past the lobby, the facility guides you down a social hallway with seating and game tables. This is a space for socialization, engagement and leisure. Those with a valid City-issued SIB Resident ID Card have access to the facility to utilize the social hallway, hang out, and mingle with friends. Further in is a fitness room with oak wood floors and mirrored walls, large and small classrooms, and a full-fledged catering kitchen. One notable feature of the catering kitchen is a camera system designed to follow chefs cooking in the kitchen with the intention to air the video feed in a classroom or play back at a later date. The kitchen is an added opportunity to expand our program and rental offerings.
Elevating the Gateway Center even further is a 3,600 square foot banquet space, which can accommodate 240 seated at round tables. Equipped with top-of-the-line technology, the ballroom will be available to rent for presentations, receptions, weddings, and various special events. Throughout the Center you will be privy to our audio/visual equipment, which connects sound and music throughout the facility in the hallways, rooms, and in the exterior surrounding the banquet space. Unlike any other facility in the City, a Hearing Loop system is built into the floor of the banquet space and fitness room. While invisible to the eye, this high-tech solution delivers sound from the AV system directly to hearing aids and cochlear implants with telecoils, strengthening the sound of the presenter for those who have difficulty hearing. As in every aspect of our work, we strive to provide accessible services for all residents.
The aesthetic of the Gateway Center is emblematic of our oceanfront location with blue, green and coral colors dispersed throughout. Providing a calm, relaxing and safe space for residents to enjoy was critical during the design phase. The Center will also have a satellite visitor center, an addition to the original one in the Government Center. Promotional merchandise will be on sale such as shirts, cups, and key chains, as well as light food and beverage items including coffee, sodas and snacks.
