The Ronto Group’s Naples Square community offers a downtown Naples location, the convenience of a walkable lifestyle, a diverse assortment of floor plans, and pricing that begins in the high-$400s.

An enclave of residences being developed within a short walk of the Naples downtown district’s combination of beaches, shopping and gallery venues, eateries, and gathering places, Naples Square is located on the corner of Fifth Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road S. The development will bring a sense of cohesion to downtown by connecting Fifth Avenue South to Bayfront with access on 10th Street via Third Avenue South.

Naples Square’s lifestyle will include common areas and residences with the latest luxury finishes and features specified by Naples-based Renee Gaddis Interiors.

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 in a recycled glass material and a bar accent 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 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 12-by-24-inch glossy 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.

The Naples Square sales gallery is at 100 Goodlette-Frank Road S. Residences range from 1,200 to 3,000 square feet. Seven, one- and two-story, two- and three-bedroom plus den floor plans are available.

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. Pricing begins in the high-$400s. Construction is planned for 2014 and includes completion of 73 residences.

Each floor plan includes large, open-concept living areas, open-air terraces, and finishes specified by Renee Gaddis Interiors. Standard details include 8-foot solid core interior doors, 8-foot exterior and sliding glass doors, contemporary, lever-style door hardware, 8-inch, clean-lined baseboards and ventilated wood shelving in the bedroom, linen and pantry closets, and separate laundry rooms with a Whirlpool Duet front load washer and dryer.

The floor plans’ open kitchen designs include working islands, 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, undermount sink with a pull-out spray faucet, and multiple granite and quartz counter top options.
