FORT MYERS, FL (July 7, 2015) – As part of the ongoing expansion of social and recreational facilities at the Plaza del Sol Town Center at Pelican Preserve in Fort Myers, WCI Communities has begun construction on a 5,000-square-foot addition to accommodate exercise rooms, a kitchen and a resort-style poolside bar, along with a new 70,000-gallon outdoor lap pool.
The new building will dedicate 3,000 square feet to two exercise rooms – nearly tripling the center’s current space. The existing exercise space will be renovated for additional cardio and strength-training equipment.
Expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2016, the project follows the remodeling of the 55 and better active adult community’s casually elegant Destinations restaurant and the expansion of the card room. The 70,000-square foot, multi-building Plaza del Sol complex offers residents indoor swimming and fitness, arts and crafts studios, and a 99-seat theater.
