Look what's going on in our city.
More to Grow
Two weeks ago we told you that 571 apartments, in three separate developments, would come online between Nicholas Parkway and Sam’s Club on Pine Island Rd. in the next couple of years, if current development plans are followed through on.
Now, there’s more coming to our area. There’s a plan, In the preliminary stages, for a 444-unit apartment complex a block east of Chiquita about halfway between Pine Island Rd. and Embers Parkway. The name of the development is Noble Vines of Cape Coral. One of the companies involved is Claret Communities, which developed Noble Vines complexes in Georgia over the last several years.

In addition to the apartment complex, there is a preliminary plan for a single-family housing development called Escondido Estates which will be located on a vacant lot on the north side of Embers, just east of the Embers and Chiquita intersection. That development will consist of 18 single-family homes.

We also told you about the Tire Kingdom coming to Skyline next to Dairy Queen and across the street from Home Depot and the Culvers that’s in the middle of construction.
There is now a new plan moving forward for a Wendy’s restaurant to go just north of the Tire Store.
A Wendy’s in that area has been in and out of the planning process for the last few years. With things picking up in that area, this time may be the charm.
Back to Pine Island Rd., there is a concept plan, in the very early discussion phase, for a multi-family development in the area a block south of Pine Island Rd. between City Palms Nursery and the strip mall just to the west. Called, for now, Cape Coral Apartments, it would consist of 2 four-story buildings with 100 apartments and studios.

A developer is in the pre-application process, working with the city over the concept plan of an adult living facility in the same area. AMY Adult Living Facility would also be located in the area south of Pine Island Rd., between Palm City Nursery and the strip mall to the west. The facility would accommodate between 58 and 62 residents.
