Visitors to Tower Pointe high-rise condominium leave with just one impression -incomparable unobstructed westerly views – a rarity in these days of unchecked development along Florida’s coastline. As they tour the 17-level high-rise building that elevates the Arbor Trace community to exciting heights, prospective buyers ultimately reach the building’s pinnacle—the spectacular Top of the Pointe Club impressively poised atop the building’s penthouse floor.
Created for the enjoyment of all community residents, this 3,500 square foot social club is perfect for an array of entertaining. The 40-foot wide expanse of the club’s outside observation deck encompasses views to the north and west, spanning from Sanibel Island in the distance with close-up views over Barefoot Beach’s public park and preserve, before sweeping south over Vanderbilt Beach to the Ritz-Carlton and the populous Pelican Bay landscape.
Thirteen acres of declared wetlands buffer the Tower Pointe building from the Gulf of Mexico, creating incomparable views of wildlife inhabiting this natural preserve, interrupted only by the meandering waterways of Little Hickory Bay and Wiggins Pass leading to the Gulf.
Enjoyment of Tower Pointe’s water wonderland and its inhabitants has been a benefit since the doors opened in 2001. Owners with southwest-facing homes are monitoring the nest-rebuilding efforts of the family of bald eagles inhabiting the adjacent parcel of land. Thought to have abandoned their decade-long home after a recent storm swept their nest from the summit of a dead tree, Tower Pointe residents are delighted with the eagles’ persistence in preserving their habitat. Graceful escapades of a pair of dolphins in the Bay and the antics of a trio of otters frolicking through the swale buffering the high-rise building from its westerly nature preserve create pleasurable diversions.
Representing the final phase of development within the 40-acre enclave, the 17-level Tower Pointe high-rise condominium catering to active adults age 55 and better opened its doors a little more than 18 years ago. Comprised of 116 two- and three-bedroom residences, all Tower Pointe units offer western exposures for sensational Southwest Florida sunsets. Building on its existing reputation for comprehensive hospitality-type services and quality health care for the mid-rise and villa residents, the Tower Pointe high rise affords its owners the same exceptional lifestyle.
While many developments in Southwest Florida claim scenic Gulf views from high-rise structures, few can claim the unobstructed and all-embracing perspective that awaits visitors to Tower Pointe.

Additional peace of mind is ensured for owners throughout the Arbor Trace community, through round-the-clock response from the licensed staff in Arbor Glen, the community’s on-site assisted living facility. Supplemental licenses for limited skilled nursing and extended congregate care allow residents who choose to relocate to this facility to “age in place” near family members and friends in the community. As property owners, these independent residents also retain the right to opt for health care in the privacy of their own condominium residences should they choose.
Both Arbor Trace & Tower Pointe residents have enjoyed the benefits of being self-managed since 2007, when condominium owners chose to buy the clubhouse property and take over its operations as a non-profit organization. Fees collected are strictly allocated for operations of the condominium associations and for enhancing the community. Residents have total and complete control of their future; from the fees they pay each month to the food they enjoy daily.
