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.
