Cape Coral's Expanding Market Prime For Development
Cape Coral is home to nearly 400 miles of navigable canals, more than anywhere else in the world. At 120 square miles, this Southwest Florida city is the third largest by land mass in the state. With a consistently growing population of 200,000, Cape Coral is only halfway built out, so there’s plenty of space for new residential, retail, office/tech, industrial and mixed-used projects. With a projected growth of more than 400,000, the city is only 47% built out today with room to grow.
