The Ronto Group announced it has broken ground on Phase I construction at Eleven Eleven Central. Foundation work is now underway. The new walkable/ bikeable, access-controlled community being built by the developer is located on Central Avenue between 10th Street and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples. In addition, construction of a permanent on-site sales center at Eleven Eleven Central has been completed and is awaiting final inspection. A downtown Naples sales center situated in unit 101 of the Naples Square Phase I building at 1030 3rd Avenue South currently represents both Eleven Eleven Central and Ronto’s Naples Square community. The sales center is open daily.
The Eleven Eleven Central sales center features a showroom with a full-sized kitchen and a full bath built to the dimensions found in the Eleven Eleven Central Duval floor plan. Both spaces display finishes included in the Eleven Eleven Central residences. The sales center has been incorporated in the 5,108 square feet of street level commercial space that Ronto has included in Phase I of the threephase Eleven Eleven Central development.
Eleven Eleven Central’s Phase I building features 62 residences showcasing five light-filled two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus den, and three-bedroom openconcept floor plans ranging from 1,407 to 2,297 square feet of total living space, including covered outdoor balconies. Two floor plans, the Atlantic and the Avalon, are sold out. Pricing on the remaining unsold residences starts at $725,000. Three Phase I models showcase Ronto’s Duval and Collins floor plans and are available for purchase through a developer leaseback. A Belair model leaseback has been sold. With its thoughtfully designed floor plans, full complement of resort-style amenities, and coveted location, Eleven Eleven Central will serve as an accesscontrolled master planned oasis in the heart of Naples and completely transform how people live in the downtown district.
“The excitement the introduction of Eleven Eleven Central has generated has been gratifying,” said Wanda Cross, director of sales for The Ronto Group. “The Ronto Group’s design intention was to provide the things that make Naples so popular – sun, fun, and luxury. Eleven Eleven Central’s location will put residents right in the middle of downtown’s action and excitement. The beach, galleries, restaurants, and shopping are all within easy walking distance. At the same time, our residents will enjoy all the sun, fun, and luxury they want right at home. There is no other community or residential building in Old Naples that offers the level of amenities that are included in the Eleven Eleven Central design. Homebuyers no longer need to choose between a downtown location or a fully amenitized master planned community lifestyle. Now they can have both.”
Inside, Eleven Eleven Central will offer a nearly 3,500-square foot clubroom with a bar, billiards tables, card tables, large screen televisions, and a catering kitchen adjacent to an outdoor grill and fire pit. A fitness center also measuring nearly 3,500-square feet will include a stretching and functional movement area, state-of-the-art exercise equipment, massage rooms, and rest rooms. Resident storage areas and bike storage areas will also be included. Six furnished community guest suites, four of which will be 422 square feet and the remaining two 403 square feet, will be provided for visiting friends and family members. A unique, dedicated arcade/game room will be located on the second floor of the commercial building. The game room will not only appeal to children and grandchildren, but also serve as a spacious, fun location for adult gatherings, including viewing televised sports or special events, watching movies, Super Bowl parties, playing pool, foosball, air hockey, or ping pong, or enjoying a beverage at the room’s large bar. Other attractions include old-style stand-up arcade games, gaming chairs, card tables, and X-Box and Play Station devices. The space can accommodate gatherings of up to 40 people.
Outside, the project’s approximately 60,000 square foot courtyard amenity deck is scheduled for completion in Phase I. The amenity deck will feature a 3,200 square feet resort-style pool with a beach entry and two 90-foot lap lanes, chaise lounges and poolside tables, two spas, outdoor showers, poolside cabanas, grills, a cabana bar and grilling area with large screen televisions, fire pits with built-in seating areas, a hammock lawn, a life-sized outdoor chess set, a yoga stretching area, and two bocce ball courts. The outdoor amenities will be expanded during Phase II to include a 20,400-square foot lushly landscaped Courtyard Park set ten-feet below the amenity pool deck at actual ground level. The park, accessed by a grand staircase, will include benches, a putting green, a yoga lawn and fenced dog runs for large and small dogs. The Courtyard Park’s sunken orientation will provide residents with tree-top views rarely found in urban downtown settings.
The residences at Eleven Eleven Central reflect Ronto’s ability to combine space, style, and imagination to create a living environment that is comfortable while making a statement. Every floor plan includes an outdoor balcony with views of the amenity courtyard or the surrounding neighborhood. Each residence will feature the standard finishes that are Ronto’s hallmark or optional finishes that will allow each resident to finish their home to suit their individual preferences. Standard finishes in the large, open-concept living areas include 10-foot ceilings, smooth walls with finish paint and 8-inch clean-lined baseboards, polished chrome lever style door hardware, porcelain tile flooring, 8-foot twopanel solid core interior doors, 8-foot sliding glass doors and exterior doors, and Whirlpool front load electric washers and dryers. Standard features in the open kitchen designs showcase large working islands, stainless steel undermount sinks, granite or quartz countertops with a four-inch backsplash, North American Cabinets, and a Whirlpool stainless steel appliance package, including a slide in range with a convection oven and a French door counter depth refrigerator. Standard features in the owner’s bath include under-mount sinks, a 60 by 32- inch tub, framed glass shower doors, 36- inch height vanities, comfort height elongated toilets, and chrome fixtures.
As planned, the commercial space at Eleven Eleven Central will be fully integrated with the burgeoning Design District that has emerged in the 10th Street corridor between 5th Avenue South and 4th Avenue North. The Design District includes new eateries, bakeries, galleries, and specialty shops. The commercial component at Eleven Eleven Central will provide additional choices for residents and for those in the surrounding area. Eleven Eleven Central is situated five blocks from Fifth Avenue South. Naples’ world-renowned beach is just threequarters 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. Eleven Eleven Central’s location also provides ready access to Baker Park and the Gordon River Pedestrian Bridge and Boardwalk on the east side of Goodlette-Frank Road that connects Central Avenue and downtown Naples to the Gordon River Greenway along a pedestrian and bicycle friendly route.
