London Bay recently announced that its 11-story Grandview luxury tower project in Bay Beach is nearing half of construction.

Work is currently underway on a fifth floor for the high rise tower on Fort Myers Beach off Bay Beach Lane. The residential skyscraper, the first to be built on Fort Myers Beach in years, will overlook the bay with prices for all 58 residences starting at over $ 1 million and reaching over $ 2 million for penthouse suites .

The residences will range from 2,400 to 2,900 square feet with three to four bedrooms each, a den and up to three and a half bathrooms.

The developers believe they are building on the last vacant space for a residential tower. They plan to open for occupancy in 2023. The project received approval from the City of Fort Myers Beach Council in January 2020 and kicked off the project in February of that year. Construction stagnated during the pandemic, but resumed earlier this year.

The building will feature an elevated spa as well as a series of indoor and outdoor gathering spaces with built-in seating and green spaces.

Amenities include an outdoor kitchen with double grills. A large area of ​​oval turf will serve as the center for a fireplace with seating. A pergola will connect the multiple rest areas and create a point of view that highlights Estero Bay. The company has plans for plantings, small flowering trees and an assortment of palm trees, according to a statement released by the company last week.

There will be a fitness center, indoor club room, bar and fireplace.

The company operates a sales center at 4530 Bay Beach Lane on South Fort Myers Beach, off Estero Boulevard, near Santini Plaza. The sales center is open Monday to Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. For more information, call 239-449-1600 or visit www.GrandviewBayBeach.com.
