Charlotte Harbor Marina is First Approved EB5 Development Launched by Charlotte Harbor Regional


PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

        Project to be one of the largest mixed-used marina facilities 

                             in Southwest Florida

    The recent final approval by the USCIS of the Charlotte Harbor Regional Center (CHRC) and its first EB5

development project - Charlotte Harbor Marina - represent a number of firsts for Southwest Florida:

    - The first Regional Center "headquarters" building in the United States.  

      Easily accessible to travelers from around the world, the marina project

      will also house the offices of Charlotte County Economic Development and

      Tourism as well as all services for EB5 investors, EB5 candidates and

      Regional Center businesses.

    - The world's first "Fractional Marina Club," unmatched in the marina

      industry, including businesses that are complementary and supportive of

      marina club operations.  

    - The first full-service marina facility in the United States developed

      using EB5 financing.

    The Charlotte Harbor Marina project has moved into shovel-ready mode after a federal, state and local

permitting and development process that has taken place over the past five years.  The USCIS approval for CHRC

includes both Sarasota and Charlotte Counties and will create a regional economic impact which is expected to

generate over 700 direct, indirect and induced jobs in the region in categories including Construction, Restaurant,

Retail, Office Space, Marina, Sales, Real Estate and Manufacturing.

    These efforts are a result of a public-private joint venture and strategic alliance formed over the past year with

Charlotte County, Florida, and its economic development components to bring economic vitality to the region,

which has been designated a Targeted Employment Area (T.E.A.).  The EB5 Visa Program is intended to stimulate

investment in the U.S. economy and to create employment in return for which international investors are permitted

to become residents of the United States and subsequently apply for U.S. Citizenship.  

    Managing the CHRC and the Charlotte Harbor Marina project are Allen and Maria Heise who, with their team,

offer an impressive background that includes more than 30 years of expertise in real estate development,

management and sales.  Their experience has demonstrated a proven track record of acquisition, entitlement,

financing, construction, development, management and sales for numerous premier commercial and residential


    Charlotte Harbor is located in Southwest Florida's world-class boating and fishing area in the proximity of 60,000

registered boat owners.  The Port Charlotte area has been named as the #1 Best Place to retire in the United

States (CNN/Money Magazine 2009).
