Viva Cape Coral
While it is easy to equate a cruise along one of the Cape's canals with a similar excursion in Venice, it is a far stretch to visualize the Cape's Atlantic Court as the Piazza del Campo in Siena.
Well that is about to change if Chicago developer RTS is successful in building their proposed project in the Community Redevelopment Area along Cape Coral Parkway between Coronado Parkway and Manor Court. Plans include residential condominiums, a hotel, movie theatre, retail and restaurants.
Cape Coral is in dire need of a development like this and particularly one that serves as a downtown destination focal point. With the rapid price escalation of property in the Cape, the new more affluent residents of the Cape are clamoring for upscale places to shop and dine. If the crowds attracted Rumrunners most evenings are any indication, this project should be a hit.
