Royal Palm Square Redevelopment Update


Royal Palm Square, our corporate headquarters of the last 15 years, is set to undergo a massive transformation in the near future, becoming the "Terraces at Royal Palm." Ever since finding out this news, we've been on the hunt for a new location that provides convenience and amenities for our students.

We are excited to announce that we have executed a lease to begin January 1, 2024 at Pinebrook Park Plaza, 12995 S Cleveland Ave (US 41), Fort Myers! Pinebrook Park Plaza is the same complex that houses Outback Steakhouse, and it is directly to the North of Bell Tower. Cantina Laredo and Dave & Busters are within walking distance!

Our office will front US 41 and our classroom will be on the backside with plenty of student parking. SEE MAP BELOW

We will remain at Royal Palm Square through the end of 2023, but starting January 1, 2024 all of our Fort Myers classes and our customer service operations will be at our new location in Pinebrook Park Plaza.

We look forward to continuing to be your SWFL real estate school of choice! ~ Brad Larson

You may have seen the recent news stories regarding the future redevelopment of our Fort Myers corporate headquarters at Royal Palm Square (1400 Colonial Blvd).
Yes, it's true that the majority of the Royal Palm Square complex will be transformed into a mixed-use development called "The Terraces at Royal Palm." It is being developed by a group out of Chicago called Alessio Development.
As far as we know, the Broadway Palm Dinner Theater is the only current tenant that will be carried over into the new development. Additionally, The Omni Gym is under construction next to the theater to also be a part of the new project. The Omni Gym is expected to open in late summer of 2023.
All other facilities within the complex, including LarsonEd, will be demolished in the future for the new construction. The good news is that our current lease goes through December 31, 2023, meaning all of our 2023 Fort Myers classes will continue to be offered at our Royal Palm Square campus.
Demolition of the plaza will not be starting immediately as the developers still need to go through planning and permitting. This gives us plenty of time to find our new campus location.
Royal Palm Square has been our home for the last 15 years, going back to when we opened in 2008, and we'll still be here for a little while longer. We will continue to keep the lines of communication open as we get closer to the transition, but for now it's just business as usual.
