GATES Construction has broken ground at The Shoppes at Estero Grande, a new retail center located on the west side of U.S. 41 and Estero Parkway. The new retail center will feature multiple store fronts, including Zoom Tan and Starbucks. The project consists of site work for the retail center as well as the entire Estero Grande site which includes a lake that was constructed to provide storm water retention as well as a source for landscape irrigation. New water, fire lines, sanitary sewer and storm piping will be provided to all areas of the property to allow future development, which includes the future home of Parkside, a multifamily condominium complex. Architectural design for The Shoppes at Estero Grande is provided by Gersdorf & Gersdorf and is slated for completion this Fall.
