In case there wasn’t enough to do in Southwest Florida, Bonita Springs is adding another jewel to its collection of attractions: a historic marina that could become something much more.
The former Weeks Fish Camp marina, on Estero Bay, has been annexed by Bonita Springs through a voluntary annexation process and is now officially a part of the city. The marina got its start in the 1940s and quickly grew into a local staple before becoming the target of a new project.
The project, still in the planning stages, would place a resort facility on the site’s 30 acres of land, including a hotel, shops, and a restaurant. The resort would only add to the plethora of amenities and attractions on Estero Bay, which further adds to the allure of the area.
As planned now, the project would cost $100 million and would be made possible with a bevy of tax concessions from the city. The project would also work well with nearby Raptor Bay Golf Club.
It’s exciting to see new developments come to Bonita Springs, especially developments that make use of a part of the land that formerly had fallen on hard times. With any luck, the new development will bring more economic growth to Bonita Springs and create a bigger draw for tourists and locals alike.
