The Treeline Corridor from Daniels Blvd to Colonial Blvd, or from The Plantation to Pelican Preserve and Colonial Country Club, is an area of new development by Centex Homes, GL Homes, Pulte, Lennar and WCI.

Colonial Country Club first sold their homes in this golf community in 2005; here you own homes which have mandatory golf requirements and homes whose owners pay for golf only when they play. Botanica Lakes is a GL Homes development which first sold homes in 2006. This was a community which practically sold out instantly because it had no golf course and low HOA fees. The Plantation was built in 2007 by Centex Homes with two sub divisions, Somerset with optional Golf and Bridgetown with no golf. A whole new section was added to Bridgetown in 2015 and is still under construction. The Somerset division is almost built out. The Planation and Pelican Preserve stopped building during the recession and came back full swing in 2011. Marina Bay is a new GL Homes development which was planned after the success of Botanica Lakes and is the newest addition to the Treeline Corridor. It was first built in 2015 and is still under heavy construction. There is again no golf course in this community. Marina Bay and Botanica Lakes do not offer condominiums but well priced single family and attached homes. When you buy in this area you should check if CDD fees are part of your property tax. Many builders of new construction used the CDD - Community District Development - fees to offset their building costs.

Colonial Country Club in Fort Myers offers single family homes, attached homes, coach homes and condominiums.

Residences at Colonial Country Club belong to neighborhoods which either require a full golf membership or allow residents to pay for golf only when they play. Condominiums are offered as coach homes with garages, townhomes and condominiums with carports. Most condominiums do not require golf memberships, with few exceptions. CDD community.
