Bell Tower Shops announces redevelopment plans for premier retail and dining destination

Bell Tower Shops announced today its plans for a comprehensive redevelopment, evolving the Southwest Florida landmark into a modern, all-inclusive shopping, dining and entertainment experience. Centrally located in the heart of Fort Myers at Daniels Parkway and U.S. 41, Bell Tower Shops will soon offer customers a new contemporary design featuring a fresh mix of retail, restaurants and entertainment options that create an ultimate lifestyle destination.

As the open-air promenade continues to add dynamic tenants such as Driftwood Blue, Anchored and Scout and Molly’s Boutique, Bell Tower Shops will transform its appearance to further appeal to shoppers of all ages and lifestyles interested in the convenience of a variety of specialty and fashion-forward retail stores. In addition, Bell Tower Shops boasts some of the area’s most popular casual and fine dining restaurants and bars, including the new modern American restaurant Society, attracting those looking for both outdoor and indoor dining options.

Bell Tower Shops will commence construction in February 2018 to further create a magnetic and vibrant experience. The 343,000-square-foot shopping center will feature new inviting gathering areas, updated architecture and redesigned storefronts, fresh paint, lively landscaping and contemporary lighting, achieving an overall modern look.
