The Ronto Group has started construction of a permanent sales center at Eleven Eleven Central, a new walkable/bikeable, access-controlled community to be built by the developer on Central Avenue between 10th Street and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples. The new sales center is being built by Naples-based BCBE Construction and will feature an interior designed by Renee Gaddis, NCIDQ, ASID, GREEN AP, president and principal designer at Renee Gaddis Interiors in Naples.
Construction of the sales center is expected to be completed in eight months. The sales center will feature a showroom with a full kitchen and a full bath that will be available for viewing and will display finishes that will be included in the Eleven Eleven Central residences. The sales center space will 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.
The 62-unit Phase I offering features 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. With the smaller square footage units already under contract, pre-construction pricing now starts at $690,000. Ronto is currently converting Phase I reservations worth more than $27 million to contracts and has reported an exceptionally strong conversion rate.
Four furnished models that will showcase Ronto’s Phase I Belair, Collins, and Duval floor plans have already been sold and will remain open for viewing after completion of construction through a developer leaseback. Permitting for Phase I construction is in process. Construction will take approximately 14 months.
As planned, the commercial space at Eleven Eleven Central will be fully integrated with the Design District that has emerged in the 10th Street corridor between Fifth Avenue South and Fourth Avenue North. The Design District includes eateries, bakeries, galleries, interior design studios, and specialty shops. 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 will put all of downtown Naples’ attractions at its residents’ doorstep and bring an additional sense of cohesion to the downtown district in the process.
At the same time, Eleven Eleven Central is five blocks from the shopping, dining, and entertainment attractions on Fifth Avenue South. 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. Eleven Eleven Central’s location also provides ready access to Baker Park and the recently completed Gordon River Pedestrian Bridge and Boardwalk developed by the City of Naples on the east side of Goodlette-Frank Road to connect Central Avenue and downtown Naples to the Gordon River Greenway along a pedestrian and bicycle friendly route.
By design, Eleven Eleven Central will serve as a master-planned community in the heart of downtown Naples and feature amenities that no other downtown community can duplicate. Eleven Eleven Central will offer a nearly 3,500-square foot club room 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 measuring nearly 3,500 square feet will include a stretching and functional movement area, 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-foot 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 landscaped Courtyard Park set 10 feet below the amenity pool deck at 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.
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 luxurious 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 two-panel 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.
