The Ronto Group announced the Naples Square sales gallery at 100 Goodlette-Frank Road S. in downtown Naples will open mid-January.
An enclave of residences, Naples Square is on the corner of Fifth Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road South. By design, the development will bring a sense of cohesion to downtown by connecting Fifth Avenue to Bayfront with access on 10th Street via Third Avenue South. Luxury residences ranging from more than 1,200 to 3,000 square feet will be within walking distance of the downtown district’s attractions.
With the opening of the Naples Square sales gallery, homebuyers will have an opportunity to purchase a two- or three-bedroom with den residence. Seven one- and two-story floor plans are available.
The community’s carefree, condominium living will include today’s latest luxury finishes, features and amenities. Designed with high ceilings and an abundance of natural light, the living spaces feature designer kitchens, chic master bedrooms and designer flooring throughout. Residents will enjoy a private fitness center, resort-style swimming pool and sun deck, as well as state-of-the art technology, convenient storage, and underground parking. Pricing is expected to begin in the high-$400s. Construction is planned for 2014 and includes completion of 73 residences.
“The response to The Ronto Group’s plans for Naples Square has been overwhelmingly positive,” says Wanda Cross, director of sales. “Because of its ideal location and the impact it will have not only on how people will live in Naples, but also on the businesses throughout the downtown district, Naples Square offers tremendous value and people are realizing that very quickly. There simply are no other opportunities of this type and this quality level that are available in the immediate downtown district. Naples Square is unique. It offers a walkable lifestyle that is redefining downtown Naples and how people chose to live and interact within the downtown community. Although we have not yet released our final plans, we know that our starting prices will be less than $500,000. This represents an extraordinary opportunity in one of Florida’s most prized downtown locations and the word is spreading quickly.”
In addition to satisfying the market’s desire to be in closer proximity to the Naples downtown district, Naples Square is designed to provide the more immediate, accessible, and health-oriented approach to living that today’s homebuyers seek. The development of Naples Square’s walkable lifestyle is indicative of a national trend toward transforming downtown areas from simply serving as attractive destinations to places where people can be fully engaged in every aspect of city life on a day-to-day basis. Rather than serving the more transient interests of those who live in outlying areas, this new form of urbanism presents an opportunity to live in a way that puts every aspect of life within walking distance, including dining, grocery shopping, retail stores, entertainment venues, theater, health care and specialty services. The trend is redefining how individuals interact with their surroundings and with one another. People no longer want to simply be able to shop and dine. Instead, many of today’s homebuyers are intent on developing a deeper sense of connection with their surroundings and more engaging relationships with the people with whom they come into contact every day. The trend is particularly evident in smaller to mid-sized cities such as Naples where attractions are concentrated in relatively small geographic areas. This type of walkable lifestyle is especially attractive to baby boomers and retirees who put a premium on active, healthy living and convenience.
“Walkability is very important to today’s homebuyers,” says Anthony Solomon, executive vice president of The Ronto Group. “We see people prioritizing a more active and healthier lifestyle. The residents of Naples Square will be able to leave their car at home and walk to some of the best beaches, dining, shopping and entertainment available anywhere.”
