FORT MYERS, Fla. (March 2, 2016) — JAXI CMD, LLC, the developers of ALLURE, the new, luxury high-rise condominium planned for the charming River District of downtown Fort Myers, have announced that they have purchased the historic Alderman House. Located at 2572 E. First Street in downtown Fort Myers, the Alderman house was built in 1925 and is listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The residence was originally owned by prominent local banker and attorney Frank Alderman, Sr. who moved to the area from New York. A successful entrepreneur, Alderman was president of the First National Bank in Fort Myers and played a part in the development of downtown.

“We are committed to the continued revitalization of downtown Fort Myers, while also doing what we can to preserve its rich history, so we decided to purchase the Alderman House to preserve this historic landmark and valued treasure,” says JAXI Managing Member Eduardo Caballero.  JAXI plans to eventually relocate the ALLURE sales gallery from 1300 Hendry Street to the Alderman house.

The architecture of the 2-story Alderman house is Spanish Colonial Revival and features a front patio with Italian blue and white tile and arcaded loggia with twisted columns. The home also features 35-foot cathedral ceilings in the living room and a unique, turret in the northeast corner of the house.

Designed as a beautiful urban enclave, ALLURE will house 292 luxury condominium residences in two, 32-story towers. A variety of thoughtfully-designed, open floor plans including one, two and three-bedroom residences are priced from the mid $300’s.  The sales gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Located on the first floor of the Fort Myers City Pier building, the spacious gallery features a model of one of the elegant condominium residences at ALLURE with beautifully-designed vignettes of a kitchen, living room and dining room. The model showcases the enviable features of the luxury residences including porcelain flooring, natural gas, five-burner cooktop, double oven, quartz countertops and floor-to-ceiling windows, affording residents breathtaking views of the expansive, glistening, Caloosahatchee River.

Beautifully-appointed residences feature natural gas ranges in chef-inspired kitchens, smart technology features, private entrance elevators, assigned covered garage parking with 24-hour controlled access, and more.

A few of the planned community amenities include: riverfront promenade; private screening room with cutting edge audiovisual equipment and theater-style seating; men’s and women’s spa facilities with saunas and showers; pool deck with heated cascading infinity-edge pool overlooking the water; “Allure Your Senses” rooftop gardens; social gathering rooms with fireplace, billiards, game tables and areas for relaxing and quiet reading; Bocce ball and barbeque grills on the rooftop and Pickleball by the pool; high-speed Internet access in all public areas, and many other luxury features.
