We are also proud to share a recent production by the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau featuring our one-of-a-kind River District, as well as an update on the highly-anticipated convention hotel planned for the riverside.
Finally, we are introducing you to the world-renowned Adriana Hoyos, whose international design firm will be delivering the most sophisticated designs to the public areas at ONE.
We hope you enjoy this issue of the ONE Newsletter.
Sales update: ONE Reports 40% Sold Since January 2017 Launch
In just under 4 months since the launch of sales at ONE, the new 18-story waterfront condominium to be built in the Historic Fort Myers River District, 40% of the residences have been reserved.
“We are extremely pleased with the response ONE has received in such a short period of time since we launched sales,” says developer JAXI Managing Member Eduardo Caballero. Caballero also reports that the prices at ONE will soon be increasing at least 8% to meet the skyrocketing costs of materials in a booming local construction market. “For that reason, I would urge any interested buyers to take advantage of the pre-construction prices now.”
“The sales success has been an affirmation of our belief in the quality of our product and the strength of our location in the history-rich Fort Myers River District where a variety of arts, entertainment, shopping and dining options are plentiful,” says ONE Director of Sales and Marketing Barbara Bengochea-Perez.
The River District is Featured on Island Findings
The Lee County Visitor and Convention Bureau recently debuted the next episode of its ongoing series called “Island Findings,” featuring some of the most treasured areas on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Episode 7 focuses on the Historic Downtown Fort Myers River District where ONE will rise on the bank of the scenic Caloosahatchee River.

The Luminary Hotel & Co. Announced as the New Riverfront Convention Hotel
At a recent “brand reveal” event, Mainsail Lodging & Development unveiled the Luminary Hotel & Co. to rise along the riverside, adjacent to the Harborside Event Center, in Historic Downtown Fort Myers. The Luminary will be part of Marriott International’s Autograph Collection of hotels, a portfolio of luxury boutique hotels.
Planned to open in early 2019, the 12-story hotel will feature 237 guest rooms, a signature restaurant, local diner with street access, a rooftop bar, and a culinary theater. Mainsail will also build a riverfront band shell in Centennial Park.
Expected to draw additional activity to downtown and revive the Harborside Event Center drawing more meeting groups to the area, the long-awaited hotel will provide an attractive lodging option for ONE residents’ visitors and offer additional unique dining and entertainment options just minutes from ONE.
Penthouse Proves Popular at ONE
ONE Sales and Marketing Director Barbara Bengochea-Perez reports that the ONE-of-a-kind penthouse home at the top of the 18-story tower has been sold for an impressive $2.8 million. “But don’t worry,” says Bengochea-Perez. “We still have one more penthouse, as well as several other elegantly designed waterfront residences available for those looking for the ultimate tropical, urban lifestyle.”
