Since releasing Phase I of its four phase Naples Square development in downtown Naples for reservation five years ago, The Ronto Group has completed construction of Phases I and II and is on schedule to complete Phase III next spring. More than 200 of the 300 residences have been sold. Homebuyers have been captivated by Naples Square’s location, walkable/bikeable lifestyle, amenities that include club rooms, fitness centers, and landscaped courtyard amenity decks with swimming pools and grills, and open-concept floor plans.
Buoyed by the market response to Naples Square, Ronto took its vision of a downtown district where people are within walking or biking distance of enjoying downtown’s attractions a step farther with the introduction of Eleven Eleven Central last January.
Situated on Central Avenue between 10th Street and Goodlette-Frank Road one block north of Naples Square, Eleven Eleven Central is adjacent to the Design District, just five blocks from Fifth Avenue South, and access to Baker Park and the Gordon River Pedestrian Bridge and Boardwalk leading to the Gordon River Greenway. Naples’ beach is just three-quarters of a mile from the community via the sidewalks and bike lanes on Central Avenue or a short ride on the planned community beach shuttle. The three-phase project will include 210 residences at completion, 62 of which are included in Phase I. Ronto anticipates beginning construction within the next 30 to 60 days.
Like Naples Square, the response to the Eleven Eleven Central offering was practically instantaneous. In just 11 months, Ronto has processed record reservations and contract conversions for every type of floor plan and view. Buyers have been attracted by Eleven Eleven Central’s location, the community’s resort-style amenities that include a courtyard amenity deck and pool, fitness center, club room, and an arcade/ game room, and five Phase I floor plans originally priced starting in the $500’s. Two of the floor plans have sold out and Phase I is more than 50 percent sold. Pre-construction pricing on the remaining unsold Phase I residences starts at $725,000.
The similarly sized residences at Eleven Eleven Central and Naples Square reflect Ronto’s ability to combine space, style, and imagination to create an environment that is comfortable and maintains a connection with the outdoors.
