FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Fort Myers city council members have approved a controversial high rise condominium planned for Downtown.

The Vue would be built on the western border of Centennial Park and include an 18-story building with more than 130 units.

The city council discussed the project for five hours Tuesday night before giving it their approval.

Critics are concerned about parking problems and the size of the building.
