A joint venture between two Miami-based developers, Global City Development and Gilu Development, are set to break ground on a 17- acre parcel in Fort Myers, FL, on the corner of Crystal Drive and 6 Mile Cypress Parkway, that was purchased in August 2022.

The joint venture will be developing a $90 million, 255-unit gated luxury multi-family community, consisting of 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom residences, ranging in size from 786 sq ft to 1,690 sq ft.

Amenities include private garages, outdoor exercise areas and a 2-story 6,200 square foot clubhouse, which features a state-of-the-art fitness center, a meditation area, a children’s playroom, a resident’s lounge (inclusive of private zoom studios and co-working space), a grand room for events, on-site management office, a resident’s package room and convenience area coupled with lush landscaping and a pool overlooking the community’s private lake. 

The project should break ground in January 2023 with a completion date in Q2 2024.

The centrally located parcel is within minutes from major retailers, medical centers and entertainment facilities, among them Whole Foods, Publix, Top Golf, Gulf Coast Medical Center, Lee County Sports Complex and numerous others. 

“The City of Fort Myers is one of the State of Florida’s true gems,” said Brian Pearl and Diego Procel, Principals of Global City Development.

Added Luis Bermudez of Gilu Development & Holdings:  “This community will have an extremely positive impact on the area as a whole and support the need for housing in our growing state.”
