Boating-5 Plans for a new marina on a 17 acre parcel at the West end of Coconut Rd. are moving forward after the Bonita Springs zoning board approved a rezoning request and forwarded the proposed development to the City Council for final consideration.

The proposed Estero Bay Marina Resort will include a 75-foot high, 28,000-square foot boat barn for 150 dry slips, a three-story parking garage and a 20,500-square-foot, 228-seat waterfront restaurant.

The site of the development is near the Hyatt Coconut Point Resort on property that was formerly Weeks Fish Camp.

The marina, including a high-end restaurant with Old Florida-style architecture, is scheduled to be completed sometime next year pending city approval.
