Let's Talk... Did You Know???


FOUNDERS SQUARE TAKING SHAPE EAST OF COLLIER BLVD.

Update on former Pelican Nursery at the corner of Immokalee and 951




The Pointe is slated for completion in summer 2021 with the first businesses targeted to open that fall. All restaurants coming there will have outdoor seating. Vertical construction began this fall on The Pointe at Founders Square. Steel girders now formt he skeleton of what will be a 38,000-square-foot restaurant-retail hub nearest one of the busiest intersections in Collier County. About two-thirds of the tenants coming to The Pointe are already known. Most of the businesses have been heralded by Trinity Commercial Group — the Estero-based real estate firm that co-owns Founders Square with Naples-based Barron Collier Corp. and Philadelphia-based Metro Commercial.

The tallest girders in the center mark the entrance to the second location of South Street City Oven and Grill, which will anchor the horseshoe-shaped cluster on more than 5 acres. The 6,200-square-foot South Street will be flanked by the fourth area location of Tacos & Tequilla Cantina and a nearly 6,000-square-foot steakhouse yet to be named. Skillets breakfast-lunch restaurant will locate next to the Tex-Mex venue while Luxury Nails & Spa and a national retailer will round out that southwestern leg of The Pointe. Fuji Sushi Bar & Asian Bistro and Palumbo’s Pizzeria will be built out in units on the northeastern leg, with a few other businesses yet to be announced.

The Haldeman Luxury Apartments, a 400-unit residential community, is being built along the southern edge and southeast corner of Founders Square. A substantial part of Founders Square’s acreage is reserved for The Haldeman apartment community. The multifamily residential units are planned for five four-story buildings on more than 23 acres with large lakes and rows of trees separating the new apartments from the existing Tuscany Cove community to its south. The concrete shell for a nearly 35,000-square-foot medical office building was quickly erected in late October with tilt walls near Founder Square’s Collier Boulevard entrance, which will have a bridge over the canal and a new traffic signal in line with the entrance to Pebblebrooke Center. Physicians Regional Healthcare System signed a 15-year lease for the two-story building under construction south of The Pointe.

Meanwhile, passersby will notice a large, metal frame taking shape smack-dab in the middle of Founders Square. That’s where a Georgia firm is developing a climate-controlled, 110,000-square-foot, three-story self storage facility. Alpharetta-based Founders Square Storage LLC purchased the 2.3 acres in July for $2.65 million.

A Circle K convenience store with a gas station also has been proposed near The Pointe and between the two entrances into Founders Square on the south side of Immokalee Road. A site development plan for the construction of a new 5,394-square-foot convenience store with nine, dual-sided fueling pumps with an overhead canopy has been proposed, county records show, but this project is not a done deal yet.

Ever had a song stuck in your head that just keeps playing over and over but you can’t recall the name or even the words?

Then this may be music to your ears. Google now offers a simple cure for earworms or stuck song syndrome: You can hum, whistle or sing the tune, even off key, and Google will rustle up a short list of possibilities.

On your iOS device, open the Google app or find the Google Search widget. Tap the mic icon and say: “What’s this song” or click the “Search a song button.” Then hum for 10 to 15 seconds.
