1. Gateway Urban Village Naples Florida
I was commissioned to produce a conceptual design for a mixed-use development on a 14 acre triangular site between David Boulevard and Tamiami Trail East. for the Collier County Redevelopment Agency,
in Naples, Florida. My proposal was very well received and is awaiting construction pending financing.

A unique feature of the design is
the parking of cars for shoppers at
grade level directly below the piazza.

2. The Festival Urban Village in Fort Myers
In 2006 I was appointed to oversee the $150MM development of a 17 acre site on Metro Parkway in Fort Myers, adjacent to a large hospital facility. The project is currently in the rezone process. Again, the concept is based on urban design principals that I discuss in my blog, see above.
|The Amphitheater with the piazza and market above and the fountain and stage below is the heart of the project|

and running parallel to the Street and Parking Garage at the top.
