All aboard for Midtown
There’s a very bright light at the end of the train tunnel, bringing the promise of renewed character plus improved density, housing, walkability and innovation to Midtown. The River District is certainly the jewel of downtown Fort Myers. Its success provides the opportunity to modernize the surrounding areas and establish a vision for a vibrant, diverse community that provides the opportunity to live, work, learn and play all in one place.

The Southwest Florida Community Foundation’s exciting remodel of the former train depot to become a hub for innovation makes the future manifest. Time to get all aboard!
