Fort Myers Construction Growth Continues
The Fort Myers area, especially the I-75 corridor, is positioned to lead Florida’s economic recovery and growth into the next decade, explains Project Marketing Director Randal Mercer. The new airport terminal is finished, work is underway on another runway, and construction is beginning on the expansion of I-75. Just north of the office park, a major commercial district is rapidly developing at the hub of Six Mile Cypress Parkway, Colonial Boulevard, and I-75, and includes two colleges, a medical center, and major shopping centers. Just south of the office park is Daniels Parkway, another thriving commercial district and the major route to I-75 and the airport. Randal Mercer, a founding partner in CB Richard Ellis, Fort Myers and Naples, frequently writes and lectures on commercial market trends in Southwest Florida.
Development of the 8.09 acre corporate office park on Six Mile Cypress Parkway also includes construction of the eastern portion of Crystal Drive, which will eventually provide direct access to Metro Parkway and U.S. 41. Plans include two sites for individual office buildings, both fronting directly on Six Mile Cypress Parkway. Mercer explains that each site will accommodate up to an additional 30,000 square feet of office space and zoning allows a wide range of businesses and professions, including medical office. The sites will be available for purchase or the developer will build to suit.
