New Seven Islands drone video says development is place to live, work and play

The Seven Islands development will be a place to live, work and play in the vibrant Downtown district. So says the video.

Seven Islands is surrounded by canals. It offers access to the Gulf of Mexico. It is also close to Charlotte Harbor, Boca Grande, Sanibel and also Captiva Island.

The development brief says, “The City of Cape Coral will unlock the development potential of the site by creating a mixed-use-district, including office, multi-family, residential, hotel / resort, retail and public amenities such as a marina, community center and green space.

“Opportunities exist for eco-tourism, hotels, specialty office, restaurants, retail and multi-family uses. The goal is to enhance the quality of life and civic activity, while developing the project to its highest and best use.

“Development of the site should create a live, work and play destination that draws people regionally, nationally and international market to Florida, and serve as a catalyst for new investment and neighborhood strengthening adjacent to the site – particularly growth and development in the Northwest Cape.”

Community stakeholder input revealed:

  • Strong desire for traditional Floridian coastal architecture
  • Greenway connections and walkable streets
  • Small businesses and waterfront restaurants, sidewalks and board walks
  • High-end multi-family residential and also waterfront activation.

The design concept plan for Seven Islands includes 995 housing units. These are 924 multifamily/condo/apartment units as well as 71 single family/fish house units. It also includes a 240-room hotel or resort with a 25,000-square-foot meeting space, 45,000 square feet of commercial space and a community center.
