On October 12, Shell Point held a ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening event to celebrate the completion of The Club at Shell Point.
Located at the Shell Point Golf Course, this $14 million, 35,000-square-foot clubhouse opened its doors after a 525-day project involving hundreds of participants. The entire project required an estimated 120,000 man hours working with more than 60 subcontractors and vendors, resulting in:
- More than 22,000 square feet of custom-color concrete roof tile
- An estimated 15,000 man hours for concrete/masonry work: 1,054 cubic yards of concrete; 33,849 masonry blocks; and 119,084 pounds of reinforcing steel
- A wind rating of 173mph, to withstand a Category 4 hurricane
To complete this project, Shell Point partnered with Christopher J. Lee Architects, Inc., RDG Planning and Design, Wright Construction Group, and Noller Design Group.
Brimming with sports, wellness, and fitness opportunities, The Club at Shell Point offers memberships to the local Fort Myers community, who will share the facility with Shell Point residents. Varying levels of membership offer year-round access to Shell Point’s Audubon-certified, 18-hole championship golf course, fine and casual dining options, fun-filled social events, a state-of-the-art fitness club, and the Seagrape Salon & Spa.
