The Shell Point Retirement Community has begun renovations on its 27,125-square-foot Woodlands Commons building as the community prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary next year.
R.D. Johnson Construction has started the renovations of the communal areas of the Woodlands building, which will include upgraded designs for the dining facilities, fitness center, kitchen, cafe and restrooms, according to an announcement.
“We are pleased to be working with the team from R.D. Johnson on the renovation of the Woodlands Commons,” Adam Hinds, Shell Point senior director of operations, said in the announcement. “This project will dramatically enhance the resort-style setting we provide to our residents here at Shell Point and will be complete just in time for the celebration of our upcoming 50th anniversary next year.”
R.D. Johnson, based out of Fort Myers, specializes in renovation of commercial and health care facilities and serves all of Southwest Florida, the announcement said.
The Shell Point Retirement Community includes six neighborhoods, six public restaurants, deep-water boating access to the Gulf of Mexico and an 18-hole golf course. The community is located along the Caloosahatchee River near the Sanibel Causeway in Fort Myers.
The renovations are expected to be completed by the end of the year.
