As destruction of the Sanibel Outlets shopping center continues, details emerged of the 22.6-acre site’s potential to be redeveloped as a 498-unit apartment complex that includes 200 affordable units. 

Calusa Grande, as the proposed development is tentatively called, at 20350 Summerlin Road, also has plans for 72,025 square feet of office space and 52,418 square feet of retail, including 21,209 square feet of restaurant space, according to a development order filed with Lee County. 

A performing arts center could be a part of the project, as well, said Edgar Wilson II, one of the project’s investors. He envisioned an arts complex of 16,000 –to 20,000 square feet for a live-work-play community.
