In answer to the region’s affordable housing shortage, 2010 Hanson Street brings more workforce housing to Fort Myers! Tentatively renamed “Bloom,” the project will add 336 apartment units to the Cleveland Avenue redevelopment area
2010 Hanson Street, or Bloom, will be developed on the site of the old Araba Shrine Hall. The event center and surrounding buildings will be razed to fully dedicate the 5.7 acre property to providing workforce housing. The 336 high-quality apartments will be complemented by a 506-space parking garage. Developer Redburn Development Partners, LLC, plans to offer rents affordable to local firefighters, teachers, nurses, police officers, and other professions where salaries may limit housing options within the City of Fort Myers. Units in this project will be available for middle-income workers that earn between 80% and 120% of the area median income for Lee County. Workforce housing rates are substantially lower than the monthly rents in regional luxury apartments and homes. 2010 Hanson Street/Bloom has been approved for an $8.2 million CRA increment rebate.
