The future of Fort Myers’ Midtown could include 4,000-plus residential units, 650,000-plus square feet of commercial office space and about 5 acres of public space.
The plan seeks to turn the neighborhood that currently has about 500 residents and almost 200 businesses into a walkable urban center that would connect to downtown. The Midtown Vision Plan was presented on Monday during a Fort Myers City Council workshop.
“This is a vision plan,” said Steve Belden, community development director for the city of Fort Myers. “It’s not a specific redevelopment plan. What you see isn’t probably going to be what it looks like in 10 to 15, 20 years.”
