The Ronto Group is celebrating the Grand Opening of its permanent on-site sales center at Eleven Eleven Central, a new walkable/bikeable, access-controlled community being built by the award-winning developer on Central Avenue between 10th Street and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples. The new Eleven Eleven Central sales center and a second sales center situated in unit 101 of the Naples Square Phase I building at 1030 3rd Avenue South are staffed by sales associates representing both communities. Both sales centers are open daily. The Eleven Eleven Central sales center will include a showroom with a full-sized kitchen and a full bath built to the dimensions found in the community’s Duval floor plan. The kitchen and bath will both display finishes included in the Eleven Eleven Central residences. The sales center will ultimately be incorporated in the 5,108 square feet of street level commercial space that Ronto has included in Phase I of the three-phase Eleven Eleven Central development. Ronto broke ground on Phase I construction at the end of last year.
Ronto also announced the City of Naples has accepted the dedication of a new public park on the northeast corner of the Eleven Eleven site on a parcel given to the City by The Ronto Group. Ronto has landscaped the park site with trees, park benches, and walking paths. The park will provide an appealing transition to Baker Park and the Gordon River Pedestrian Bridge and Boardwalk leading to the Gordon River Greenway on the east side of Goodlette- Frank Road directly across from the Eleven Eleven Central development.
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 emergence of the Design District that includes new eateries, bakeries, galleries, interior design studios, and specialty shops has coincided with the development of Ronto’s Naples Square community located at the corner of 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road and with Ronto’s announcement of the Eleven Eleven Central project last year. The commercial component at Eleven Eleven Central will provide additional choices for residents of the community and for those living and working in the surrounding area. Eleven Eleven Central’s amenity offering will include a dedicated arcade/game room on the second floor of the commercial building. The arcade will appeal to children and grandchildren while serving 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 and will feature an interior design by Renee Gaddis, NCIDQ, ASID, GREEN AP, President and Principal Designer at Renee Gaddis Interiors. Men’s and lady’s rest rooms will be included.
Eleven Eleven Central will serve as an access-controlled master planned oasis in the heart of Naples and completely transform how people live in the downtown district. 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, stateof- 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.
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.
Forty-something professionals, empty nesters, and retirees have all been attracted by Eleven Eleven Central’s location, the community’s resort-style amenities, and five spacious Phase I floor plans. Eleven Eleven Central Phase I features 62 residences showcasing five light-filled two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus den, and three-bedroom open-concept 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 that were originally priced from the mid-$500’s, are sold out, and Phase I is more than 50% sold. Pre-construction 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. All four models will remain open for viewing upon completion of the Phase I building.
