la mer - 4051 Gulf Shore Blvd Naples fl

A true waterfront icon in the Naples area, La Mer continues to attract interest from new buyers decades after it first graced the city’s skyline. The building was the very first high-rise of its kind to come to Park Shore, and its certainly one you can’t easily forget.

Constructed in the late 1970s, La Mer was uniquely designed around a central atrium with hanging gardens. The open-air atrium has been a feature now for decades, recently updated and renovated to reflect a more modern look, while at the same time retaining the original charm that first attracted people to the building so many years ago.

Along with the soaring atrium that perhaps gets the most attention, the building’s lobby also contains a reflection pond. The beachfront condo

marquesa isles - naples fl

A new community of twin villas is coming to Naples, where construction crews recently began clearing land for construction of Marquesa Isles. The gated community sits just off County Barn Road and Davis Boulevard, with eventual plans calling for more than 150 villas to be built at the site.

A development of Neal Communities, Marquesa Isles could be open as early as next fall, complete with designs influenced by British West Indies-style architecture as well as the classic coastal designs of Caribbean plantation homes. In addition to the new construction residences, an amenity center will join the twin villas of Marquesa Isles, including a swimming pool and spa, plus a fire pit and cabanas.

The space will also make room for a community kitchen,

Facing some stiff competition from several other southern cities, it seems that Naples rises high above most of the rest, gaining high marks when it comes to the top southern foodie towns in the nation. Southern Living recently came up with its list of “The South’s Best Food Towns 2018” based on a reader survey, and Naples certainly gets a nod as one of the true favorites on its latest list.

In fact, Naples comes in at an admirable number four on the list of favorite southern food cities, only topped by cities in three other locations including those in Mississippi, South Carolina and Alabama. Some point out that’s just confirmation of the city’s rise when it comes to national recognition of its restaurants, with past showings on

It’s time to prepare for an entirely new culinary experience, as a new food truck park is coming soon to East Naples. Planned for a spot just off Bayshore Drive, crews are now taking their first steps toward completion of the planned attraction, named Celebration Park.

While it’s expected that the venue won’t officially open up to diners until late summer or early fall, crews will be hard at work, in the meantime, constructing a tiki bar, restrooms and making space for around a dozen food trucks plus seating at the site. Actual construction of the project should take less than six months, but the entire idea has been in the planning stages for years.

The creator is the same force behind Three60 Market, noted as a

seasons at naples cay - naples fl

With the luxury of a gulf front address, Seasons at Naples Cay provides excellence at every turn. Constructed by WCI Communities in the early 2000s, this impressive, 22-story tower features just two residences per floor, offering the height of exclusivity in Naples.

The views are a big part of what makes the property so special, with sweeping views of the Gulf and Clam Pass from the private condos. Ranging from three- to five-bedrooms, the spacious residences start at around 4,700 square feet in size, each accessed by private elevator.

In fact, the units are so luxurious that a top floor penthouse sold last year at the record price of $14.75 million, more than twice what the former owners paid for it and nearly rivaling the most expensive price

naples lake - naples fl

With an exquisite, natural setting and elegant amenities, Naples Lakes presents the luxury of a premiere country club environment. The bundled golf course community provides for nearly 500-acres of gated splendor, with some of that space dedicated to the beauty of lakes and nature preserves, noted as a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.

Above the scenery, perhaps most exceptional is the club’s 18-hole golf course. Crews recently completed a major overhaul of the Arnold Palmer Signature course, with more than three million dollars in improvements made to the site.

This included constructing new greens, leveling and enlarging the tee complexes, replacing cart paths, expanding and improving practice facilities and reshaping the course’s

naples design district - naples fl

Long considered the Design District of Naples by locals, the area of 10th Street North is transforming once again. Stretching mostly from US 41 to 10th Street, the design district holds the distinction of being one of the city’s very first commercial areas, and its not slowing down.

While once shoppers picked up everything from groceries to car parts here, the district is now primarily filled with everything from consignment shops to antique stores, architects to interior designers. It’s been less than a decade since city leaders officially gave the area its namesake, yet locals have been frequenting the district for much longer than that.

It’s the spot to go for carpeting and flooring, a place of mostly locally owned shops, far from the larger,
