Manatee Park is just a short pace from the Grand Legacy site location.
Grand Legacy Village is conveniently located near all major Hospital Systems. More specifically, it is within the immediate vicinity of Lee Memorial Health Systems, and is approximately 2 miles from an 80,000 square foot medical office building owned by Lee Memorial.
The site is also near Fort Myers Beach, Miromar Outlets, Gulf Coast Town Center, and Coconut Point Shopping, not to mention a wide range of restaurants from world-class dining to casual experiences.
The site is located on the Orange River with views of the Caloosahatchee River and boat access to both the Gulf of Mexico on the West Coast, as well as the Atlantic on the East Coast. It is also located just off of Interstate-75 and is close to other major highways such as US-41. As far as accessibility is concerned, the site is easily accessible yet secluded on a 20.54 acre campus that is lush with a preserve, natural landscape, historical lighthouse, and the marina, which provides a very tranquil environment.
Counties within the State of Florida budget annual expenses based on past, current, and forecasted needs. In order to establish accurate budgets, most counties within the State of Florida utilize data that is prepared by credible state funded agencies, such as the University of Florida’s Bureau of Economic and Business Research. The Economic Development Council for the County of Lee where this property is located utilizes UF’s annual studies as prepared by BEBR to evaluate the needs of its community. In a study published in late 2014, Lee County EDC extracted analytical data from this very study and published the following statistics:
These figures overwhelmingly support the need for additional Senior Housing and care programs for seniors as they age in place. Not only will the senior population make up more than 1/3 of the total population in Lee County by next year, but by 2030, the number of seniors between ages 65 and 79 will make up almost 47% of the County’s total population, putting Lee County in the fourth position for the most densely populated Senior population in all of Florida behind Pinellas, Miami-Dade, and Broward.
We will also provide demographic data published by Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) and Nielsen Senior Life Reports that further confirm the population projections.
This conclusion was published in the Naples Daily News on September 27, 2014, and an excerpt of the article titled “Want a Glimpse into the Nation’s Future? Look to Florida’s ‘Gray Belt’” is evidenced herein:
Currently, the project is planned as a continuum of care under a CPUD zoning classification as a Continuing Care Facility. There is a continuing demand for Senior Housing with continuing care services and there is not sufficient Senior Housing planned for future development according to Lee County’s Economic Development Council to meet this explosive influx and growth in the senior population.
It should be noted that this study does not include in-migration to the State of Florida that occurs from other states. In order to better understand the precise needs of the community, it is imperative that this data also be included. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has released its 2013 to 2014 migration data. This data provides estimates of residential movement between counties and states based on the number of claimed exemptions on IRS income tax forms.
Currently, the project is planned as a continuum of care under a CPUD zoning classification as a Continuing Care Facility. There is a continuing demand for Senior Housing with continuing care services on the market, nor is there enough Senior Housing planned for future development in the pipeline according to Lee County’s Economic Development Council to meet this explosive influx and growth in the senior population.
It should be noted that this study does not include in-migration to the State of Florida that occurs from other states. In order to better understand the precise needs of the community, it is imperative that this data also be included. According to The Tax Foundation at the National Press Building of Washington D.C. online, the following net migration figures have been observed for residents coming into, and leaving the State of Florida as their primary residence from the years 2000 to 2010:
As is observed graphically, most residents who come into the state of Florida come from New York, followed by New Jersey, Ohio, Massachusetts, and Michigan. A total net (meaning the total number of people after accounting for in-and-out migration) of 504,480 people have moved to the State of Florida over the ten year period. Although not all of these permanent residents are seniors, it can be easily concluded that a percentage are, and these individuals most also be accounted for when planning Continuing Care Communities in one of the most densely populated senior counties in the whole State of Florida. Although these supportive studies are the primary focus of this presentation, other elements such as Construction and Owner’s Vision are also important for the future owner/operator/investor to understand.
Net domestic migration, calculated by subtracting the number of people moving out of state from the number of people moving into a state, was by far the greatest in Texas and Florida. This is not surprising, since these states have routinely been at the top of the domestic migration league tables for virtually all of the new century. The one exception was for a brief period during the housing bubble when the Florida numbers were depressed. During that period, Florida's reached levels only exceeded by California but have since been moderated. That, plus a severe local recession, were associated with the drop in net domestic migration.
