Fowler Construction & Development helps lead post-Ian revival across Southwest Florida

As construction managers specializing in marinas, restaurants and hospitality in Florida, Fowler Construction & Development responded to Hurricane Ian’s severe impacts, particularly in Lee County. Leveraging 56 years of expertise, the team quickly stabilized and began restoring properties across affected areas, including Cayo Costa, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach, while navigating changing regulations to expedite client recovery.

Upper Captiva & Cayo Costa: Mainstays Restaurant on Upper Captiva is set to reopen after mechanical and structural repairs, along with a significant refresh. Nearby, Cayo Costa State Park will also reopen soon with updated infrastructure, bathhouses, offices, and ranger residences. Dock permits are pending.

Sanibel & Captiva: Three recently completed and four in-progress projects at ‘Tween Waters Inn fared very well and served to host emergency crews immediately after causeway access was restored. Unfortunately, Beachview Cottages, West Wind Inn Resort, and Castaways Resort with almost 400 units all on Sanibel, have been completely demolished and are in design and permitting to rebuild.

Fort Myers Beach: Wahoo Willy’s, completed hours before Hurricane Ian, was the first to reopen post-storm. Mr. Waves Island Bar stands as last approved before FEMA changes went into effect. Fowler is now pioneering The Whale Restaurant and Bar’s reconstruction, marking the first new commercial build post-Ian on Fort Myers Beach.

Cape Coral & North Fort Myers: The Cape Coral Yacht Basin was destroyed, but The Boathouse Restaurant reopened within months following extensive repairs. In North Fort Myers, Fowler established a triage boatyard in two weeks for salvaged vessels. The site is developing into Safe Harbor’s Port Phoenix Marina, featuring cutting-edge technologies and services, targeting a late 2025 completion.

Matlacha & Alva: Fowler devoted considerable resources to assist local rebuilds, stepping in where “restoration” companies failed by conducting unnecessary demolitions.

Founded in 1968 by Robert Fowler Sr. and now directed by Robert Fowler Jr., Fowler Construction & Development has delivered hundreds of projects through the decades for clients in many industries, including marine, restaurant, and hospitality.
