FMB RENOVATION CONTROVERSY-OTS


A FORT MYERS BEACH BAR WITH A CONTROVERSIAL PAST IS GETTING A MAJOR REVAMP, AFTER IT ABRUPTLY CLOSED LAST WEEK.

NBC2 FOUND OUT A NEW OWNER HAS TAKEN OVER, AND HE HAS A LOT OF NEW IDEAS.

REPORTER LAURA ROBERTS UNCOVERED WHAT'S NEXT FOR TOP O' MAST. Return to index of stories...


FMB RENOVATION CONTROVERSY-trx-PKG


No more rum-runner fueled beach parties, at least not for this establishment.

The old Top O'Mast Bar on Fort Myers Beach's Time Square is closed for renovations - just check this sign outside their door.

Marsha Barber

Former Top O' Mast customer

18:26 18:31

we're kind of like bummed that it's closed, that's where I danced!

and if you take one look inside - it's a mess - because a complete renovation is in the works.

it's clear when it re-opens, you likely won't even recognize the 40-year old bar.

Developer Joe Orlandini bought the property last week, promptly closed it down, and quickly started turning Top O' Mast into something totally new.

Joe Orlandini

Developer

57:48

the property itself was ran as a bar and somewhat as a night club for a long time:54

BUTT TO

58:00 so we want to go in the direction of where Times Square has changed cause everything's changed around it except this

People on the island may know Orlandini from his residential real estate properties -

which caused some controversy over elevated pools not meeting city code.

And people may know Top O' Mast because of its previous owner Steve Strauss -

who was found guilty of illegally serving alcohol on the sand.

But now Orlandini wants to be known as the guy who transformed that bar into a family-friendly restaurant.

Orlandini

57:31 57:35

it is a family oriented place, the island's a family island

Even so, there are some, who'd like to keep a few adult- only places on the island.

Lehmann

Fort Myers

16:34 there's plenty of beach for kids there's plenty of activities for kids:38 and my personal opinion is keep it a little more grown up:42

Orlandini hopes to attract both, adults and kids - so everyone can enjoy the island-themed beach restaurant.

On Fort Myers Beach, Laura Roberts, NBC2 Return to index of stories...

ROBERT 1ST BLOCK HIT

Scattered showers and storms again developed in the PM hours on Friday, as highs climbed into the low to mid 90s. The storms may push into the Urban Corridor later this evening, as temps fall into the 80s. We'll see the activity end overnight, with lows in the mid 70s.

Slightly drier air works into the region on Saturday. We could see some morning rain in the coastal areas, but this activity will diminish by mid-morning. Expect more storms to develop in the PM hours, with the coverage not as great as earlier in the week. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 90s.

More dry air arrives on Sunday, and this will likely reduce the threat for storms. A couple widely scattered cells will be possible to close the weekend, but most areas will stay dry. Highs on Sunday will push into the mid 90s.

The dry and hot weather sticks around to start next week. Just an isolated pop-up shower will be possible on Monday, as temps again climb into the mid 90s.

Tuesday also looks fairly dry, with low rain chances and highs in the mid 90s.

More moisture does return into the region by midweek, raising the threat for PM showers and storms. Highs to close the week will be in the low 90s.

TROPICAL UPDATE

It is still very quiet in the open waters of the Atlantic, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean as we move into the weekend. The atmosphere across the tropics is not very conducive for development right now.
