In 2015, Morris-Depew Associates was brought on to help lead design and land use planning efforts for TPI Hospitality’s newest endeavor on Fort Myers Beach. TPI Hospitality purchased numerous contiguous parcels at the center of Downtown Fort Myers Beach with the goal of bringing to life a new redevelopment project that would include several beachfront resorts, new food and beverage venues, retail space and multiple beach access points.
All four of the firm’s core disciplines – Civil Engineer, Land Planning, Landscape Architecture and Survey & Mapping – have been involved in the execution of the TPI project. Below is a highlight of the Survey work completed.
After three years of coordination with the Town of Fort Myers Beach, residents, business owners and community organizations, a historical redevelopment project was approved within the Town of Fort Myers Beach at the base of the Matanzas Pass Bridge. The recently approved Commercial Planned Development consists of 254 hotel rooms, a full-service restaurant, and beach club. The approved development also includes the donation of the parcel at the intersection of Fifth Street and San Carlos Boulevard, a 5-foot pedestrian access easement between Estero Boulevard and the Gulf of Mexico as well as a public parking lot with pedestrian access on the South side of Estero Boulevard.
Morris-Depew Associates provided a full suite of services to TPI Hospitality, with preliminary work including survey services to support the initial acquisition of the parcels that make up the 5-acre project.
Additional survey services included detailed ALTA surveys for the purchase of all parcels included in the project site. Topography and detailed surveying to determine the location of existing improvements seaward of the Coastal Construction Control Line as well as mean high water to support the design of a Coastal Protection System.
