The Ronto Group announced that since opening its Naples Square Sales Gallery at 100 Goodlette-Frank Road S. in downtown Naples in mid-January it has received more than 35 reservations for residences ranging from 1,200 to 3,000 square feet being developed on the corner of Fifth Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road. Naples Square’s walkable lifestyle will bring a sense of cohesion to downtown by connecting Fifth Avenue to Bayfront with access on 10th Street South via Third Avenue South.
A surge in reservation activity that included more than 10 new depositors in one week followed Ronto’s announcement that the condominium documents of Naples Square I, a Condominium have been approved by the Division of Florida Condominiums. Approval of the documents was received Feb. 20. With the approval of the condominium documents, Ronto anticipates converting Naples Square reservations to contracts later this season.
Naples Square’s downtown location, walkable lifestyle, diverse assortment of floor plans, and attractive pricing that begins in the high-$400s, continue to generate an overwhelmingly positive response in the luxury homebuyer market.
Seven, one- and two-story, two- and three-bedroom with den floor plans with open-concept living areas and open-air terraces are available, each suited to the downtown Naples lifestyle. Designed by MHK Architecture and Planning of Naples, the light-filled floor plans feature 10-foot ceilings, designer kitchens, chic master bedrooms and designer flooring throughout. Controlled access covered parking is also included. Construction is planned for 2014 and includes completion of 73 residences.
Each floor plan includes finishes specified by Naples-based Renee Gaddis Interiors. Standard details include porcelain tile flooring in the living areas, kitchens and baths, 8-foot solid core interior doors, 8-foot exterior and sliding glass doors, contemporary, lever-style door hardware, 8-inch clean-lined baseboards, 7-inch crown molding per plan, ventilated wood shelving in the bedroom, linen and pantry closets, and separate laundry rooms with a Whirlpool Duet front load washer and dryer and a utility sink in most plans.
The floor plans’ open kitchen designs include KitchenAid Architect Series II stainless steel appliances, European frameless construction, full-overlay cabinetry with a variety of door profiles, finish selections and hardware, a stainless steel, under-mount sink with a pull out spray faucet, and multiple granite and quartz counter top options that are three centimeters thick. The master bath features marble-topped vanities with dual sinks, showers with bench seats and glass enclosures, soaking tubs with most floor plans, and a separate water closet room. J-boxes are included in most rooms for the future installation of decorative lighting or ceiling fans.
Gaddis has designed the community’s common areas to include a neutral color palette of grays, beiges, browns and aqua accents. As planned, clean-lined architectural details and materials will provide a coastal feeling with a modern twist. Twisted brown and silver juniper branches will create visual interest and bring texture to the neutral color palette.
The first-floor elevator lobbies are slated to include terrazzo floors. Tile flooring with a wood look will be featured in the upper floor elevator lobbies to create a less commercial and more residential ambiance. Custom panels of asymmetrical blocks will serve as interesting accents on some of the elevator lobby walls.
As planned, the club room will include a large counter-height bar table with recycled glass accents and a bar wall with a Mother of Pearl wall covering. The club room bathrooms will feature tongue-and-groove wood architectural details mixed with the wood-look tile on the walls, as well as large basin sinks with linear drains that are incorporated in a counter top fashioned from a man-made material with a concrete look.
Naples Square also offers a diverse assortment of amenities to enhance its downtown living experience in a controlled access environment. Residents will enjoy a professionally designed fitness center, a courtyard amenity deck featuring a resort-style heated swimming pool and spa, sun deck, pavilion bar with gas grills, and a gas fire table with seating, as well as state-of-the art technology, convenient private storage, bicycle storage within the garage, and secure under building parking. The pool baths will be finished with a contemporary glssy white ceramic subway tile set vertically. The club room and a terrace will open to the pool area and include a bar, large screen television, a billiards room, and a furnished fire pit area on the courtyard level.
Naples Square will be staffed by a professional management team that includes full-time maintenance and housekeeping personnel.
Naples Square is the latest development from The Ronto Group. Reservations for residences at Naples Square are being accepted.
