“We stand with our Sanibel and Captiva clients following Hurricane Ian,” said Hanser, “and have every intention of finishing the build out of our new office on the island when it is prudent to do so. In the meantime, we had always planned to extend to Fort Myers, as our client base has expanded greatly off the islands. We accelerated those plans to meet their needs, as well as the needs of so many of our clients and employees who have resettled, even temporarily, in other areas of Lee County.”
The two-story office building is 10,520 square feet with ample room for growth. “The Trust Company has experienced significant growth over the last few years,” said Igo, “spurring strategic hires across wealth services, portfolio management, trust operations and client services. This building provides us with a comfortable and beautiful space to serve our clients, add talent as needed and host our events.”
Architect Joyce Owens, FAIA, RIBA is owner of Architecture Joyce Owens LLC and has been secured to complete the interior plans for the building making it functional and inviting. She is known for her award-winning designs of contemporary and coastal style and use of sustainable materials.
“The Trust Company has a long-standing relationship with Joyce. She is responsible for the design work of our Sanibel and Tampa offices, as well” said Sanibel Market President, Jeffrey Muddell. “The new Fort Myers office will align well with the way our team members work and collaborate, allowing us to continue to work seamlessly, as we demonstrated during and after Hurricane Ian.”
Benchmark General Contractors, Fort Myers, has been secured to execute the build out of the Fort Myers office. Anticipated occupancy is in Spring 2023. Currently, temporary offices are within RE/MAX Realty Group, 7910 Summerlin Lakes Dr., Fort Myers. In person appointments are welcome at this location.
