The Counselors of Real Estate Consulting Corps, a six-member team and part of a nonprofit organization with about 1,000 members, advised the city of Fort Myers and a group of about 50 stakeholders to be diligent with their real estate assets in the Midtown area.  

CRE released its report Tuesday and presented it during an evening workshop at the Collaboratory, which served as a liaison between CRE and the stakeholders.  

Cassandra Francis, who led the CRE team, advised the city to give City of Palms Park one more chance for a limited time of two to three years as a sports destination. Built by the city in 1993 for the Boston Red Sox, it has sat mostly vacant since 2012, when the team vacated it for the then-new JetBlue Park at Fenway South complex in south Fort Myers.
