Tim Aten Knows: New commercial development planned on Immokalee Road

Author: Tim Aten, Gulfshore Business

Q: I was wondering if you knew what was being built on Immokalee Road before Randall Boulevard on the right-hand side west of the fire department? —Pete Spagnuolo Jr., Naples 

A: Local developers have proposed 125,000 square feet of commercial uses, which would include a possible neighborhood retail center and up to 80,000 square feet of self-storage on the south side of Immokalee Road between Wilson and Randall boulevards in Golden Gate Estates. 

Potential commercial uses for the retail center of at least 40,000 square feet include general convenience commercial, including office and retail uses such as eating places that would not draw a great deal of traffic to the area, according to a representative for GM Advisors LLC, the co-owner and developer of the nearly 10 acres. The project is expected to be fully constructed and occupied within a few years on the combined three contiguous parcels. 

The project will satisfy the increase in retail demand over the next five years in the retail market area, according to a market analysis prepared last fall by Naples-based Real Estate Econometrics Inc.
