Shell Point Retirement Community, a resort-style, nonprofit continuing care retirement community in Fort Myers, recently hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for residents to celebrate the opening of the newly renovated Woodlands Commons. The remodeled facility features a coastal décor amid modern features, two reimagined restaurants, and new meeting spaces for Shell Point residents to enjoy.
The Palm Grill, located within The Woodlands neighborhood at Shell Point, reopened its doors to reveal a warm and inviting dining venue boasting a fully redesigned outlook. The extensive renovation included an intricate, three-dimensional ceiling system and wood-look visual, re-upholstered seating, fresh paint, and a kitchen resin system that is both slip-resistant and highly durable. This lakefront casual dining venue offers a wide variety of refined menu selections and is open for both Shell Point residents and members of the public to enjoy.
Additionally, celebrations continued at a brand new dining facility called The Blend. Offering casual eating options via an indoor and outdoor lakefront patio, The Blend’s patrons are spoilt for choice with a variety of menu items. Breakfast includes freshly baked breads, Belgian waffles, Caribbean French toast, eggs cooked to order, breakfast sandwiches and other light breakfast items. Beverage offerings include freshly brewed coffee, espresso, cappuccino and other specialty coffee drinks. Lunch guests can enjoy a large selection of house-made soups and salads, deli sandwiches, Paninis and wraps.
“We’re happy to introduce these fine dining facilities to residents of Shell Point, and the broader community, who will all benefit from these improvements,” said Joe Smith, senior director of hospitality. “The ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Woodlands Commons marks the beginning of some exciting renovations at Shell Point.”
In addition to the new and redesigned restaurants, improvements within the 27,125-square-foot, two-story resident activity center also include the newly remodeled Grand Cypress Room, Arts and Crafts Room, Game Room, Buttonwood Room and lobby.
To complete the project, Shell Point partnered with R.D. Johnson Construction, Inc., RDG Planning and Design, Wegman Design Group, Artefact Studio Inc., and Fiber Solutions. The Woodlands at Shell Point is located at 14441 Woodsong Lane in Fort Myers, two miles before the Sanibel Causeway. For dining reservations at The Palm Grill and The Blend, call 239-454-2059.
Other new updates recently unveiled include two new tennis courts and a 90-seat picnic gazebo at The Woodlands’ Center Court. The gazebo, fully equipped with an outdoor kitchen and grill, ample seating, and indoor space too, is an ideal place for picnics and social gatherings, and provides guests with ample access to enjoyable open and shaded areas.
