Allegiant’s Sunseeker Resort development plan in Port Charlotte

Allegiant Air is preparing for a county review of its site plan for a 22-acre waterfront resort in southwest Florida and planning to break ground in summer.

Last August, the discount-fare airline announced plans for the development in Port Charlotte called Sunseeker Resort.

Port Charlotte residents have concerns about the planned development along Charlotte Harbor, including its impact on a nearby public park and on traffic congestion and parking availability.

Sunseeker Florida, a subsidiary of Allegiant, plans to build a resort with 720 condos that owners could rent, 75 standard hotel rooms, about 10 restaurants and retail stores, a private marina for watercraft owners and renters, and a 1,000-foot swimming pool.

John Redmond, the president of Allegiant, personally acquired and assembled the 22-acre development site, located within six miles of Punta Gorda Airport, where Allegiant is the sole passenger airline.

Charlotte County commissioners last week took action that allows an Allegiant subsidiary, Sunseeker Florida, to redevelop individual lots within the 22-acre site.

The county commissioners also directed Sunseeker Florida to widen a street that intersects with another fronting the development site.

Sunseeker Florida, which soon will submit a site plan for county review, wants to start construction by summer. [Naples Daily News] – Mike Seemuth
