Commercial Development

Welcome to fort Myers!

This year Trader Joe's moved into Page Field Commons.  This location is strategically located near Page Field Airport.  Land your private jet and do some shopping at this convenient location. Page Field is the general aviation airport of Fort Myers and caters to the needs of private, corporate, charter and recreational aviation in Southwest Florida. The airport is just minutes away from Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel, Captiva and the downtown Fort Myers River District. See the displays of vintage aircraft and historical military items at the Base Operations terminal building, which is open to the public. The Exchange gift shop is also located inside for unique local books, military items and aviation-themed gifts.  Another option is our International Southwest Florida Airport, that continues to innovate, grow, and provide excellent air service.

Smart growth enhances the quality of life.  We create livable communities.  The Interactive Development Activity Map has some of our recent development activity.
