Additional Affordable Housing
East Pointe Place
East Pointe Place is one component of the multi-property redevelopment plan, originally implemented by Pinnacle as the development partner of the Housing Authority of the City of Fort Myers. The 86 units replaced the obsolete 100-unit Palmetto Court public housing complex. The development offers project-based operating subsidy under both the Public Housing program and the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
Landing at East Point
Landings at East Point was part of an ambitious multi-property redevelopment strategy, implemented by the Housing Authority of the City of Fort Myers (HACFM) and Pinnacle. Together a total renovation, reducing the total number of units from 200 to 126 and creating “like new” generous living space for residents, were made.
In October 2005, the Housing Authority of the City of Fort Myers was awarded a $20 million dollar HOPE VI Grant to demolish and rebuild the Michigan Court/Flossie Riley public housing developments. The new Renaissance Preserve Development was made by HACFM, to improve lives of all individuals within the community. Three hundred ninety-two (392) new, mixed income, mixed tenure, Energy Star-enhanced units, were the result of the HOPE VI transformation.
