In downtown Fort Myers’ newly invigorated Historic River District, there is a renaissance underway. Once vacant parcels of prime land along the shores of the Caloosahatchee River are now highly active with the development of new condominium buildings. Introducing Prima Luce on the Waterfront.
One of the premier examples are the Prima Luce towers that are now under construction. They are expected to be completed in 2023. Prima Luce is the vision of MacFarlaneBarney Development, headed by Robert MacFarlane.
This development is Mr. MacFarlane’s 6th Caloosahatchee riverfront project in the downtown area. He has spent more than 50 years creating luxury residential communities.
Prima Luce offers 200 residential units in 6 different floorplans. There are two, 22-story luxury towers soaring high above the river.
The towers will be on First Street in downtown Fort Myers, about ½ mile east of the Edison Bridge, which spans the river. The current Sales Center is at the corner of First Street and Hendry Street downtown.
Prima Luce’s prime waterfront location is in the revitalized downtown Fort Myers area. There is great proximity to dining of all varieties and cosmopolitan shopping. These provide appeal for the upscale buyer seeking a palace in the sky.

The luxurious residences at Prima Luce offer 6 unique floorplan designs, from a studio beginning at about $300,000 to a palatial, 3-bedroom penthouse for $3,123,870. There are also 1 and 2-bedroom units.
