Homebuyers have clearly been captivated by Naples Square’s location, walkable/bikeable lifestyle, amenities, and beautifully designed floor plans that offer an ideal downtown pied-a-terre or full-time residence at an attractive price point. An eclectic mixture of Bermuda, British West Indies, and Coastal Contemporary architectural styles created by Matthew Kragh, AIA, owner of MHK Architecture & Planning, has brought a timeless flavor to Naples Square and created a visually appealing downtown landmark. A park-like landscape design by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design, Inc. that includes an attractive streetscape along Third Avenue South that bisects the community has created a pedestrian and biker friendly route that connects downtown with Bayfront. A dedicated public access linear park easement will stretch along the entire eastern edge of the Naples Square site and front Goodlette-Frank Road while solidifying the connection between downtown Naples and the Gordon River Greenway.
