According to a recent study, Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) contributed $389M to the Southwest Florida economy last year. With over 10,000 students and growing, FGCU is one of the true cogs of our economy.
One of the questions I get asked quite frequently is what neighborhoods are convenient to FGCU? Certainly San Carlos Park is a popular community with both the FGCU student body and faculty. Its close proximity makes it a convenient choice for many associated with FGCU. The San Carlos Park real estate market is predominately made up of single-family homes.
Estero is another area offering easy access to FGCU. Estero is dominated by gated, planned communities offering a wide range of housing options. Estero neighborhoods close to FGCU include Bella Terra, Grandezza, Osprey Cove, Rapallo and the Residences at Coconut Point.
