Surge in Phase III Reservations At Ronto’s Naples Square

With Phase II construction at Naples Square rapidly approaching completion as scheduled in first quarter, 2017, and just 15 Phase II residences remaining available for purchase, the award-winning Ronto Group announced there has been a surge in Phase III reservation activity. Naples Square is being developed by Ronto at the corner of 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples. The community’s walkable lifestyle is bringing a sense of cohesion to downtown by connecting 5th Avenue to Bayfront with access on 10th Street via 3rd Avenue South. Naples Square’s innovative site plan, walkable lifestyle, and the availability of light-filled 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 in Naples’ downtown district.

Ronto and MHK Architecture and Planning have created eight Phase III floor plans ranging from 1,460 to 3,238 square feet under air and base-priced from $695,000. The one and two story, two and three bedroom plus den plans include spacious, thoughtfully designed living areas and open-air terraces. The plans feature 10’ ceilings, designer kitchens with gas cooking, chic owners’ bedrooms and designer flooring. The Phase III plans offer renamed and enhanced iterations of the plans now being enjoyed by the community’s Phase I residents.

Just four Phase III Emerson residences remain available. Fashioned after the popular 2,469 square feet under air Phase I Essex plan, the Phase III Emerson offers 2,830 square feet under air, a 15% square footage increase. The plan’s spacious great room, large dining room, owner’s bedroom, and one of the two guest bedrooms open to a south-facing 366 square feet open-air balcony overlooking Naples Square’s beautifully landscaped courtyard amenity deck. Base-priced at $1,495,000, the flow of the Emerson plan is exceptional. The plan includes a den, an island kitchen with counter height bar seating, a foyer with a ceiling detail and crown molding, three-and-a-half baths, and a laundry room. The owner’s suite includes double walk-in closets and a bath with his and her vanities, a soaking tub, glass enclosed shower, and a separate water closet.

Thoughtfully designed by Ronto and MHK, the Phase III Emerson floor plan and its enhanced space sequences will offer a remarkable level of livability to complement Naples Square’s amenity rich walkable lifestyle. Five feet were added to the great room space originally presented in the Phase I Essex plan. Pocketing sliders will fully open the Emerson’s light-filled great room and dining room to the covered balcony that is now 12-feet deep and faces the building’s courtyard amenity deck. A significant bank of cabinetry was added to the kitchen design and the size of the kitchen’s island was increased. Three feet of depth was added to both the owner’s bedroom and the den and the windows were enlarged from two panels to three panels. The redesigned guest bedroom facing the courtyard was transformed from a 12 x 12-feet space to an 18 x 12-feet suite with an additional window, a larger walk-in closet, an additional vanity sink, and a door separating the shower and commode from the vanities. The transformed space now conveys the feeling of a second master suite that offers a pleasing view of the courtyard’s colorful landscaping.

The Phase III Biltmore floor plan offers an ideal Downtown Naples pied-a-terre and also reflects the enhanced space sequences available in the Phase III offering. Base-priced at $845,000, the 1,698 square feet under air Phase III Biltmore floor plan is based on the 1,529 square feet Phase I Ballard plan. In addition to offering an 11% increase in air conditioned space, the Biltmore’s open-air terrace is 20% larger and measures 242 square feet. The two-bedroom plus den Biltmore plan offers the possibility of owning a beautifully finished downtown residence literally just minutes from downtown’s dining, shopping, and entertainment attractions. Each of the Biltmore residences will overlook the Phase III building’s lushly landscaped courtyard. The great room plan includes a spacious counter-height island kitchen with a stainless steel sink, dishwasher and a food preparation area. The great room, owner’s bedroom, and guest bedroom all open to the terrace. The owner’s suite includes double walk-in closets and a bath with a glass-enclosed shower and his and her vanities.

Ronto and MHK enlarged the width of the Biltmore’s great room, kitchen, and terrace by two feet, an enhancement that will contribute to the exceptional livability of the home’s core living areas. The enlarged width also allowed Ronto to increase the number of glass slider panels opening to the terrace from four to six, a step that provides the residence with additional natural light while enhancing the views of the courtyard. An additional foot of depth was included in the new terrace design. Taken in combination with its increased width, the additional depth resulted in the 20% overall increase in the terrace square footage. A full wall of cabinetry was added to the kitchen design and is now standard in all Biltmore residences. The re-design also resulted in a significant increase in the size of the owner’s bedroom. It now measures 15 x 15-feet, a full 225 square feet of sleeping quarters. To enhance the owner’s bedroom’s natural light and view, a third panel of glass was added to the window.

The Phase III residences will present the luxurious finishes that are the hallmarks of Naples Square. Standard details include porcelain tile flooring in the living areas, kitchens and baths in sizes up to 24” x 24”, 8-foot solid core interior doors, 8-foot exterior and sliding glass doors, contemporary, lever-style door hardware, 8-inch clean-lined baseboards, 7-inch crown molding per plan, ventilated wood shelving in the bedroom, linen and pantry closets, and separate laundry rooms with a Whirlpool Duet front load washer and dryer and a utility sink in most plans. Phase III’s open kitchens will feature an enhanced appliance package with a gas cooktop and hood and a wall mounted oven and microwave. European frameless construction, full-overlay cabinetry with a variety of door profiles, finish selections and hardware, a stainless steel, under-mount sink with a pull-out spray faucet, and multiple granite and quartz countertop options that are three centimeters thick are included. The master bath features marble-topped vanities with dual sinks, large showers with bench seats and glass enclosures, soaking tubs with most floor plans, and a separate water closet room.
