Grand Central is part of Aileron’s larger redevelopment and transformation of an abandoned 18-acre mobile home site to a vibrant mixed-use commercial residential project that includes over 10,000 feet of retail space fronting U.S. 41 / Cleveland Avenue with the apartment complex located directly behind the retail center at 4910 Silver Gate Lane. The retail center includes a Krispy Kreme, Jimmy Johns, AT&T Store and Suncoast Car Wash. Aileron worked closely with the Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency to develop the $50+ million project with an intent of spurring additional development interest in the area.
