Fisherman’s Village Announces a Quality-of-Life Expansion

Updated: Dec 8, 2022

Punta Gorda, FL, August 22, 2022 – Fishermen’s Village, Punta Gorda’s premier waterfront destination offers indoor and outdoor dining, shopping, and entertainment year-round. Offering a full-service destination resort and a hometown hangout for visitors and locals alike.

Fishermen’s Village, is pleased to announce the expansion of its property and continued rehabilitation of the existing retail and Suites. This project will include a large investment to improve the property’s infrastructure, expand the retail area and add a residential component to the property with expansion of public access space.

Overall Expansion

A proposed redesigned development plan for the Fisherman's Village and adjacent parcels was created which follows a transitional pattern containing the tallest of the proposed buildings located within the Village parcel, followed by three-story buildings over parking on Retta Esplanade, and ending with traditional townhouses along Shreve Street. To the development committee, it was extremely critical to respect the charming single-family homes in the adjacent historical district while providing density that was compatible with zoning regulations without compromising quality of life.

Commercial and Residential Use

Designed to create a community-focused and design-driven environment, this integrated development incorporates both residential and commercial buildings. This project includes the construction of a hotel building, residential condominium building, and professional housing building over two to four stories of parking, with retail and restaurant liner shops.

To the east on 1000 W Marion Avenue, you will find three- to five-story condominiums and one professional housing building, each with its own parking space. There are three existing buildings in the planned development at 900 W Marion Avenue: one is the home of the popular Military Heritage Museum, another is being renovated for use as a small boutique hotel with 26 rooms, and a third building will be transformed into a two-story condominium building with parking. Two- to three-story villas/townhomes will be constructed over parking on the east side of Shreve Street.

Harborwalk Systems

Included in this plan is the vacating of Retta Esplanade west of Shreve Street. An access road to the Sunset Breezes condominiums would be provided through 1000 W Marion Avenue. The vacated public right of way would transform into a larger extension of the existing park and Harborwalk systems, providing space for additional public amenities and no vehicular traffic.


Parking is a sensitive issue in historic areas and was an important design consideration for the Village project. Controlling the parking to the Village site was crucial in the overall design to keep the parking off the adjacent lots and side streets in the historic district. The parking decks under each building will be designed to provide enough parking to exceed peak demands at the Village, containing all parking on site. The result is a better environment for all in the historic district, as well as improved access to surrounding businesses.
