A new development in Fort Myers could be the key to more business moving to the area. Plans for a massive three-building complex in Midtown are moving forward. The city is hoping this development will inspire other investors to consider Midtown. The developer’s plans highlight the benefits of living there including being right near downtown, the farmer’s market and the water.
A four-story apartment building, a five-story building with upscale amenities and a six-story parking garage are set to make up what will be called The Montage at Midtown. The developer says the project will create nearly 700 jobs directly and indirectly with a nearly $130 million economic impact for a section of the city that needs a jumpstart.
The city is hoping this development will inspire other investors to consider the 243-acre Midtown, bordered by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard on the north, Edison Avenue to the south, Cleveland Avenue on the west and Evans Avenue to the east.
