Rendering of 270-acre mixed-use Paradise Isles development in North Fort Myers

A veteran developer in Lee County is planning a mixed-use development that would span 270 acres in North Fort Myers, including a closed golf course that would reopen.

Dennis Fullenkamp, who in 2015 acquired the 270-acre property, is preparing to request a rezoning of the land for a development called Paradise Isles.

The rezoning proposal for the land would construction of two 20-story and two 12-story residential buildings with a combined total of 800 units.

Fullenkamp also wants to expand an existing marina on the property, build a parking garage, and develop a commercial area with restaurants, offices, stores, a golf clubhouse and a hotel.

His plan for Paradise Isles would include renovation of the property’s existing 18-hole golf course, which opened in 1972 and closed in 2006.

The estimated cost to develop Paradise Isles would range up to $1 billion, according to civil engineering firm Hole Montes. [Fort Myers News-Press]Mike Seemuth
