Selecting a Business Location

Let our site selection consultants help in finding a business-friendly location. Selecting a business location involves basic considerations such as proximity to customers, ease of access, and leasing and zoning restrictions. Financial incentives and tax credits offered by our local government may also influence your decision.

Cape Coral, Florida Site Selection & Commercial Property
 

ShoppingMallThe Cape Coral Economic Development Office has several site selection services and resources available to help you through the business location selection process. Our resources will help you understand some basic legal and regulatory issues that you may encounter when selecting a business location, as well as practical advice for choosing the ideal business location.

Within its 120-square-mile landscape, Cape Coral has more than nine square miles of unimproved land with a future land use or zoning designation for commercial development. Commercial space can be leased for as little as $5 per square foot. Extensive broadband provides an easy global reach, potable water is plentiful, and traffic flows easily on our established roadways. The city offers six distinct investment zones that include two industrial parks and Foreign Trade Zones for a total of 3,844 acres for commercial/industrial development.
 
Our Economic Development Team serves as a liaison between businesses and city departments when dealing with such issues as regulations, zoning, permitting, etc. We are working with other departments to define and map current and future land requirements for retail, office and industrial uses, as well as to define optimal density and intensity for industrial and business development. We track emerging industries and targets of opportunity to help businesses identify potential areas to consider for relocation or expansion.  One such project is the new Lee County VA Healthcare Center, which opened in December 2012.
