Lee County-  Lee County leaders want more commercial growth to help expand the financially-strapped county's tax base. They got a boost Thursday.

The first shovels of dirt were thrown on a project that will feature 18 business condominiums along Highway 19. The project will include two ponds with walking trails, Colonial Williamsburg type retail and business condos, and two large corner buildings suitable for retail or office space. Developers say 63,000 people live within five miles of the development, so there's a built-in customer base.

"We see mostly local opportunities, mom and pop's and professional people coming in," said Buck Anderson, Developer.

The upscale development is expected to open in the fall and will have seven access points from Highway 19 and Highway 133.
