OASIS Luxury High Rise Condominium is located in the revitalized, historic Downtown River District of Fort Myers offering the best value and tropical lifestyle in Southwest Florida.
Positioned slightly inland, just off the gulf coast of Florida on the Caloosahatchee river, best known as the former winter homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford and the current Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins spring training camps.
Fort Myers' River District is considered the spirit of the newly revitalized downtown Fort Myers, Florida.
In 2002 an urban planning firm, Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company (the same company that revitalized West Palm Beach and Naples, Florida downtown areas) was hired by the Downtown Redevelopment Agency in an effort to revitalize the city's core. The focus of the redevelopment plan was on residential development in order to attract people to live, work and be entertained in the downtown district. This vision, known as new urbanism, is now taking hold in Fort Myers. Many high rise luxury condominium buildings now dot the Caloosahatchee river banks.
The new Hotel Indigo (a boutique chain of the Intercontinental hotels), in the heart of downtown, underwent a three and a half year restoration, converting the historic building it now occupies into an updated retreat for vacationers and business travelers alike.
There is an old-world feeling with a new-world energy that permeates the River District. Whether taking a stroll to the many restaurants, art galleries and nightlife or enjoying coastal activities such as boating, fishing, beaching and watersports, Fort Myers is a lifestyle destination.
The Florida Repertory Theatre performs in the Historic Arcade Theatre on Bay Street. Terry Teachout, drama critic for the Wall Street Journal wrote, "make haste to Fort Myers, where the weather is warm and the theater fine." The River District is also home to the Southwest Florida Museum of History and churches and temples. Close by are the Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium & the Imaginarium - a hands on museum and aquarium - and the Alliance for the Arts where you can take a course in music history, yoga, photography, graphic design, painting, or learn a new language. Within walking distance of Oasis,
dazzling downtown towers mingle with pedestrian malls and open green
spaces, and lamp-lit streets are lined with restored 1920's Mediterranean
revival buildings that now house attractive restaurants, cafes,
shops, museums, and galleries.
The city also boasts modern metropolitan
conveniences: a thriving international airport, sophisticated shopping,
dining, and a continuous cultural menu of theatre, festivals, exhibits,
fairs, and music from jazz to classical, bluegrass to blues.
For recreation, there's the restored
and expanded city yacht basin, the white sands and famous shells
of nearby Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island, and excellent fishing
on the Caloosahatchee River and the Gulf.
As Thomas Edison once stated "There is only one Fort Myers, and 90 million people are going to find out."
