When the City of Fort Myers downtown basin opened in late 2012, it was apparent it was an award winning space combining a unique mix of waterfront pathways, aesthetically appealing architecture and landscaping, while inconspicuously improving water quality before draining into the Caloosahatchee River.
Not only did this project win the Engineering Excellence award from the Florida Institute of Consulting Engineers last year, it was just announced that it won the Outstanding Redevelopment award from the Florida Planning and Zoning Association (FPZA), the Excellence Award for Stormwater Programs and Projects from the Florida Stormwater Association (FSA), and earned the title of Public Works Project of the Year from the American Public Works Association (APWA).
This is just the beginning of what’s to become an exciting downtown gathering space with Phase 2 of the Riverfront Development plan slated to include adding waterfront restaurants, shops and hotels. This project will bring a much needed economic boost to the City of Fort Myers while bringing its residents and visitors together. These awards recognize our teams’ exceptional efforts on this truly exceptional project.
