This beautiful 24-acre mixed-use property lies along the meandering Caloosahatchee River, part of the Intracoastal Waterway. It contains 870 lineal feet along the river with a myriad of very large, old native oaks. Our conceptual site plans depict a 50,000 square-foot commercial and retail village with 75 multi-family residential homes. A marina with dry storage and dockage is planned. The Barron House, a landmark in LaBelle, is presently leased.
On the south shore of the Caloosahatchee River, within the eastern portion of the City of LaBelle, with direct access to State Road 80 on the south and Fort Thompson Road on the west.
Residential development on the west, the Caloosahatchee River on the north, vacant county-owned land on the east and SR 80 on the south.
Part of the Intracoastal Waterway, the river allows boaters to pass from the Gulf of Mexico, cross the peninsula through Lake Okeechobee and on to Florida’s eastern coastline.
