Cape Coral Lot Sizes
We receive inquiries from prospective vacant land sellers who are very excited because they have… a … “double lot!” This usually comes from someone who bought so long ago they forgot how lot sizes work here, or they inherited the land.
We get the wonderful pleasure of informing them that the standard residential lot size in Cape Coral is… a double lot. Two lots each of 40′ (frontage) x 120′ (depth), making a total buildable lot size of 80×120. A single 40×80 lot in the Cape is not buildable.
This nuance goes back to the 1960’s when the city was originally platted, with small retirement homes in mind.
