Ronto Breaks Ground on Naples Square Phase III

The Ronto Group announced it has broken ground on construction of Phase III at Naples Square in downtown Naples. Phase III purchase agreements worth $37 million have been processed thus far. Situated at 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road, Naples Square’s walkable lifestyle and the availability of one and two-story, two and three-bedroom plus den floor plans with open-concept living areas and open-air terraces continue to transform how people live downtown. The community is bringing a sense of cohesion to downtown by connecting 5th Avenue to Bayfront with access on 10th Street via 3rd Avenue South. Ronto has announced plans for the Shoppes at Naples Square, a combination of retail and restaurant space on the eastern edge of the Naples Square site. Ronto anticipates retail openings in 2019. Gulfshore Playhouse has finalized its purchase of a three-acre tract on the northern end of Naples Square and plans to build a multimillion-dollar 56,000 square-feet complex that will include two theaters and an education wing.

Eight Phase III one and two-story floor plans from 1,460 to 3,238 square feet under air are base-priced from $695,000 to $1,550,000. The two and three-bedroom plus den plans feature 10’ ceilings, open-air terraces, and designer kitchens with an enhanced appliance package. Leasebacks are available to purchasers of the three furnished models that are included in the Phase III offering. The Phase III floor plans offer newly designed, enlarged, and re-named iterations of the Phase I residences. Naples Square’s Phase III residents will enjoy a re-designed courtyard amenity deck with an enlarged pool deck and a 780-square foot pool that is 29% larger than the pools included in the Phase I and Phase II buildings. A 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. Other amenities include a fitness center, secure under-building parking, private storage, and bicycle storage within the garage.

A Phase III Finishing Touches Program will be facilitated by the project’s general contractor, BCBE Construction, LLC, in a building on the southern end of the Naples Square site that will open in December. Purchasers will be invited to meet with Naples Square’s Finishing Touches Program Coordinator at the Gallery to select finishes for their new home’s flooring, cabinetry, countertops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors. At the same time, they will have an opportunity to customize their home’s lighting fixtures and to add any non-structural elements they desire. The homeowner’s interior designer is welcomed to join in the process.
