ESTERO — Construction is underway on a pair of commercial buildings in Estero Crossing, a mixed-use project in Estero.
Several restaurant entities have signed leases for the project, including Dunkin, neighborhood-style craft beer and artisan pizza restaurant Oak & Stone, health food restaurant Crisp and Green and the Chicken Salad Chick. The other businesses with signed leases at Estero Crossing, according to a statement, include OrangeTheory Fitness, Restore Hyper Wellness and Sherwin Williams paint store.
Stock Commercial, a division of Naples-based Stock Development is behind the project. Estero Crossing, on the south side of Corkscrew Road, just west of Interstate 75, will feature approximately 60,000 square feet of retail space facing Corkscrew Road, as well as six, three-story luxury apartment buildings with a total of 306 residences positioned directly behind it.
Keith Gelder, the president of Stock Commercial and Stock Luxury Apartment Living, says Stock is intentionally focusing on the retail portion of the project first and then will concentrate on the apartment section. Commercial pre-leasing has been underway for several months, and the first two commercial buildings are scheduled to be completed in May.
“We feel it’s important to complete the retail space up front to essentially activate the project and provide a host of dining options, services and amenities to our future residents immediately upon their moving in, as well as expand the options for the families living in the surrounding area,” Gelder says in the statement.
The luxury apartment element of the mixed-use project, Corsa at Estero Crossing, will offer a variety of one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans, the release states.
Stock Luxury Apartment Living is part of the Stock Development family of companies.
