Terraces at Royal Palm is Transformative

Fort Myers is about to see a massive redevelopment project, as an existing shopping center is set to be transformed into something for everyone. The old Royal Palm Square Shopping Center is being remade into a 15-story condo tower and dozens of townhomes, coined the Terraces at Royal Palm.

The mixed-use project replaces a shopping center which was originally constructed in the 1980s. Most of it is going away to remake the area into a new, mixed-use community of new residences, plus also some shopping, dining, and entertainment. 

The Terraces at Royal Palm project is rare not only for what its including but for the fact that developers are taking some existing urban space and reimagining it into something new. An existing dinner theatre is being allowed to stay, but dozens of existing businesses will not.

When complete, it’s expected the new development will include a condo tower with rooftop dining, plus some green space, a resort-style swimming pool, and even a wave pool. It could take a couple of years to finish the project after it gains approval from the city council.

In all, plans call for 40 townhomes. It’s been reported that each of the townhomes will include a rooftop terrace and a private balcony. The four-story townhomes are expected to range from around 2,400 to 2,500 square feet of living space.

The townhomes will be customizable too, with some premium packages available for future buyers. It’s expected that the townhomes will include a two-car private garage and a private entrance, as well as some modern finishes.

Nearby amenities in the gated community will include a swimming pool with cabanas, pickleball, a dog park, and membership at The Omni Health Club, which is included with HOA fees. While there is garage parking for residents, there will be some available street parking for guests.
