Southwest Florida FOX 4 reporter Briana Brownlee included The Irving Downtown in a recent piece on new high-rises coming to Downtown Fort Myers, Florida.
The Irving will sit on the corner near the intersection of Bay and Lee Street, in the heart of the River District.
"The Irving team is currently working with the City of Fort Myers and local utility providers to establish the equipment easements necessary to remove the existing overhead power lines from the project site, while the final vertical construction permit drawings are under review," stated Jeff Barney, Vice President of the Alzada Company. "Site work and other utility permits have already been approved and once issued, we hope to officially break ground this fall."
The 12-story building will have 98 units and Barney said there is already a waitlist.
"While The Irving is technically a high-rise building, it’s also technically a mid-rise building. With the Edison Grand and Royal Palm Towers just northeast of The Irving, and the Luminary just down Bay Street to the west, The Irving will add some height to Downtown, but no higher than some of its nearby neighbors," Barney stated.
