Estero schedule board gets update on entertainment complex, timeline

A new entertainment center being developed by the Village of Estero is expected to open in December 2024.

The Village of Estero’s planned sports, food and entertainment complex is expected to open in December 2024 and has an “aggressive” timeline to get there.

Consultant Michael Comparato and project manager Chris Wright — both with Bonita Springs-based Vieste LLC — presented the Planning Zoning and Design Board Nov. 14 with the latest updates and plans for the village’s 20-acre site off Williams Road near Estero High School.

Third place of entertainment?

Two entertainment partners have been chosen and were announced in July. Comparato said the consulting group is looking for a third. Chicken N Pickle and High 5 will develop two pads and work together on opening timing and planning, he said. The companies will then own the land, while the Village retains ownership of all common areas and parking.
