Did you know Cape Coral has a Future Land Use Map?

 

Did you know…??? View of South Spreader Waterway

 

Cape Coral has a Future Land Use Map available for viewing on their website? This is a critical tool to have when buying a home or lot in Cape Coral. With the vast amount of vacant land in the city, it may be easy to think no one will build next to your dream home or a nice single family home will be built in the lot next to you. Instead, it may very well be a doctor's office, gas station, or retail store, next to you or across the street. 

 

I assist my customers by providing area information, including future development. Contact me if you need guidance on buying a home or lot in Cape Coral...Jill Winchel 615-504-1185, Realtor at Royal Shell Real Estate, The Koffman Group.

Yellow Poinciana

 

Yellow Poinciana

Yellow Poinciana 

Although the Red Poinciana is more frequently seen in Cape Coral, the Yellow Poinciana is quite a show-stopper. This one was seen on Surfside Blvd on the west side of Cape Coral. These trees will grow up to 40 feet tall and into a canopy shape, thus providing shade. The red and yellow flowering trees are blooming now throughout the city. You will be able to recognize these trees when not in bloom by the long brown seed pods.
