This week, Cape Coral City Council approved a number of zoning-related amendments to keep plans for a new 40,071-square-foot conference center on track to begin construction soon.
Developers of the Westin Resort at Tarpon Point Marina are behind this $12 million project. The new center is projected to create 33 new jobs, bring in $100,000 in bed tax money and provide a total regional benefit of $33.44 million in the first three years.
"The conference center will become an important anchor for economic development in our city," says EDO Manager Dana Brunett. "It will be exciting to see the commercial development that will arise from having a conference center in Cape Coral, and it will be nice to be able to bring in business-related visitors to our community as a result of this conference center."
In addition to the conference center, the hotel plans to remodel a number of two-bedroom suites into one-bedroom rooms to increase the number of rooms available.
