Estero Crossing was applying for a development order for the commercial part of their project, along with their monument signs.  The site is located on the south side of Corkscrew Road, 1,000 feet west of the intersection of Corkscrew Road and I-75.

The Design Review Board conducted a public hearing for this application and approved it with a condition to add two traditional canopy trees in the buffers on the north side.

The overall project consists of 270 multiple-family units, and 60,000 square feet of commercial uses. The commercial portion of this project is a separate parcel located on the north side of a reverse frontage road and the residential parcel is on the south side of the reverse frontage road.  The residential portion of the project will be a separate development order.

This application included two commercial buildings, pocket park including benches & trash cans, parking lot/street lighting, dry detention areas, and perimeter landscaping.  The buildings will be painted in cream and tan, with French roast (brown) as an accent color with white trim and barrel tile roofs.

The reverse frontage road will connect Corkscrew Woodlands Boulevard with the Estero Town Commons project (Lowes Plaza), where a traffic signal is to be installed with the intersection of Corkscrew Road and Puente Lane.

The two monument signs proposed along Corkscrew Road will match the overall design and colors of the buildings.

Public Comment: 2 residents from the neighboring Corkscrew Woodlands expressed their concerns regarding construction dust impacting their homes, construction traffic going through  Lowes not the Corkscrew Woodlands entrance, fears that existing wildlife/vermin on this site may impact their neighborhood and status of the proposed traffic light at Corkscrew Road and Puente Lane.
