Biz Buzz on the Beach


Lin’s House

Over a year ago Fort Myers Beach lost one of its favorite restaurants, Lin’s Garden.  A beach staple for over 17 years, owners Winston & Diana Lin have found a new home just off the island at 16970 San Carlos Blvd, Unit 130, located in the Publix shopping center on the NW corner of Summerlin Road and San Carlos Blvd behind McDonalds.

Now named Lin’s House but offering the same great food and same great Diana to greet you!  The buffet is gone but lunch and dinner specials are offered all day long.  Stop in and you will probably see many of your neighbors once again enjoying the wonderful flavorful Chinese food that Winston, Diana and family provide.

Open 10:30am-9pm Monday – Thursday, 10:30am-9:30pm Friday and Saturday and 4pm-9:30pm Sundays. Lunch specials from 11am-3pm and dinner specials all day. They have a limited delivery area and are now offering catering services. Call ahead to have your fresh steaming hot food ready to go by calling 239-274-0561 or 239-463-0890. Visit their new website  Welcome back Winston & Diana!

Grandview at Bay Beach

Grandview-by-the-Bay-Biz-Buzz-on-the-BeachRepresentatives from developer London Bay Homes, builder Suffolk Construction Company and Town of Fort Myers Beach dignitaries celebrated the groundbreaking for the Grandview at Bay Beach high-rise development. The 11-story project will be the home of 54 luxury residences. This last open lot available for development along Bay Beach Lane is within the Waterside Community at the very east end. The residences will feature amazing bay and gulf views from both sides of the building, as well as world class architectural design and amenities.

Josh Christensen, COO Gulf Coast of Suffolk, indicated residents and prospective buyers can expect 12-18 months of piling construction. These pilings will reach 50 ft depths by drilling and not by pounding, offering some noise relief to the neighbors. After the building framing has reached full height at 18 to 24 months, interior construction will begin.

A 3rd floor model unit for sales will be available in about 24-30 months. Right now, each available unit can be viewed digitally on large interactive screens at the sales center at 4530 Bay Beach Lane on Fort Myers Beach or by visiting Call 239-307-0211 for sales office hours and to schedule a visit.
