The developer of a planned 202 room hotel, as well as a restaurant, commercial space and parking garage planned for Bonita Beach Road has received a rezoning request from the Bonita Springs City Council.
Barefoot Beach Hotel, as the project is named, will be constructed on a 4.75 acre parcel on the north side of Bonita Beach Road between Imperial River Road and Okeana Street. The project is 1.5 miles from it’s namesake Barefoot Beach and Bonita Beach at the Lee-Collier County line.
The hotel will consist of two buildings. One of the structures will contain retail space and the other, in addition to the hotel rooms, will contain no more than 19 condominiums. The main building fronting Bonita Beach Road will be five stories high and a parking garage will be constructed behind the main building. The parking garage will include 42 spaces for public use and the developer has plans to provide a shuttle to the beach and other areas of Bonita Springs.
No date for the start of construction has been announced.
