The Soltura Development Group recently broke ground for Odyssey by Soltura, a country-style apartment complex that houses 129 residences. The property will consist of 1-, 2- and 3-room apartments, all of which live like single-family houses but are rented out like an apartment.

“Soltura Development is excited to bring the first cottage-style apartments to Southwest Florida,” said Danville Leadbetter, co-founder of Soltura Development. “With our community’s ever-increasing housing needs, we believe this is a great time to bring this new alternative to market and we are proud to begin our journey here in southwest Florida with such great partners.”

Each Odyssey by Soltura condominium is a separate freestanding building that includes both front and back patios, impact windows and doors, and a small private garden. This gives each tenant the space and opportunity for their own single-family home experience in an apartment environment.

Fort Myers Mayor Kevin Anderson attended the groundbreaking ceremony and showed his support for the new project. Also in attendance were Danville Leadbetter, Arron Simon and Larry Covitz from Soltura Development and Tiffany Esposito, President and CEO of SWFL Inc. Soltura’s project partners also attended the groundbreaking ceremony and are as follows:

  • Steve Iannaccone (Halstatt Partners) – Equity Partner

  • Norm Gentry (BUILD) – general contractor

  • Chris Farr (BUILD) – general contractor

  • Chris Joiner (carpenter architecture) – architect

  • Ed Buckley (Avenue5) – Property Management

  • David Ohlrich (Avenue5) – Property Management

Odyssey by Soltura is located at 2655 Forum Boulevard in Fort Myers. More information is available at
