Strayhorn, Persons-Mulicka & Fisher successfully obtained City of Fort Myers approval for the amended planned unit development for the Vue project, a proposed high-rise along the Caloosahatchee River in downtown Fort Myers.

The Vue project served as a source of local controversy for residents who were concerned about the impact to Centennial Park.

One of our attorneys, E. Bruce Strayhorn, brought a deep understanding of the intricate history of the property and Centennial Park’s beginnings to the Vue project. Originally, he represented the Michael Abbott Corporation, which had been known as the Downtown Fort Myers Shrimp Docks. The land where this business establishment sat was acquired by the City of Fort Myers, including the upland, riparian and submerged lands to the east. Mr. Strayhorn helped the City secure the necessary dredge and fill permits to create what is now Centennial Park.

Drawing upon this foundational firm knowledge, including past amendments to the project, past public concerns and the plan for downtown Fort Myers, Attorney Jenna Persons-Mulicka was able to present an even better plan for the Vue project before the Planning Board. This included presenting before the public at numerous special meetings, and ultimately before the City Council to obtain the necessary approvals for the modern-day Vue project.
