Developed by venerated marketplace leader STOCK Residences, the new waterfront project is a major draw for luxury homebuyers

The prime property market is abuzz with news surrounding Naples’ newest and most legendary waterfront address: The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Naples.   

The exclusive, ultra-luxury development -- which is the brainchild of the award-winning, Naples-based family-owned developer, STOCK Development -- breaks ground this year (on track for completion in 2025) and is already being hailed as a “must-see.”

Located at the intersection of Vanderbilt Beach Road and Gulf Shore Drive, it accentuates everything that makes Naples such an iconic, globally-treasured destination -- from Gulf of Mexico panoramas and access to the sands of Vanderbilt Beach, to views of the adjacent estuary, and use of a private, 22-slip full-service marina.

STOCK Development, led by CEO Brian Stock, has built a two decades-long reputation on excellence, recognized as the number one luxury homebuilder in Southwest Florida. In addition to being revered for its high-end residences, the company is widely lauded for its luxury lifestyle amenities -- unparalleled expertise which will permeate throughout the designs of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Naples.

“This is brand-new construction in a highly favored waterfront location where there is virtually no opportunity to buy ‘new’ -- or build new, for that matter,” said Stock.  “Residents are going to have every imaginable amenity and convenience at their fingertips, coupled with the legendary service of The Ritz-Carlton.  For those buyers looking for that quintessential combination of ‘new,’ waterfront, and world-class offerings in the heart of Naples, this is the ultimate choice.”

The architecture of The Residences furthermore involves a cadre of top visionaries: Curts Gaines Hall Jones (CGHJ) Architects, interior designer Cristian Pinedo of SUSURRUS, and landscape architectural firm Booth Design Group, as well as the venerated experience of a premier general contractor, Suffolk Construction, and engineer, J.R. Evans Engineering.  The project is being constructed to the most current hurricane codes -- including impact glass throughout -- and will feature two levels of parking above the flood zone, giving it added protection from the elements.

Comprising a collection of 128 beautifully-appointed homes, the transformative, six-acre enclave will be flanked by Vanderbilt Beach and the Gulf of Mexico to the west and Vanderbilt Lagoon to the north.  Each residence starts at nearly 3,000 square feet and features at least three bedrooms – a marketplace rarity due to their size and scope.

“There has always been an important directive that we’ve adhered to: Create estate-like units…large homes that have casual, free-flowing spaces that extend outside, making them feel all the more connected to the environment,” said CGHJ President and CEO Robert Hall.

Project amenities include an exclusive concierge, a marina, and a lush park with walking trails, a putting green, and covered pavilions.  The property will also boast The Vanderbilt Club -- a 28,000-square-foot club with a Grand Owner’s atrium and lobby lounge, private restaurant, business center and coffee lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center, and a full-service spa -- a kids’ room, a teen room with a Formula 1 simulator, and a club lounge with a golf simulator and private theater, among other features.   The Residences will additionally have 22,000 square feet of outdoor amenities, including a resort-style pool, lap pool, cabana suites, and fire pits.

“I don’t know of many properties offering the amount of public spaces that this one will,” said Cristian Pinedo, whose top projects include the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto and The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad.  “The size of the amenities is very remarkable.  The way STOCK has crafted every detail of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Naples is unbelievable.  They wanted the best of the best: the best designs, finishes, lighting, amenity offerings, and beyond.”

Prices for three, four, and five-bedroom residences currently start at $3 million.  The homes and penthouses will have expansive terraces as well as contemporary European-style kitchens and baths, Cambria quartz countertops, 10 to 12-foot ceilings, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, porcelain and wood floors, and private elevator entrances.

The sales gallery is located at 2355 Vanderbilt Beach Rd., Suite No. 106.  Call 239.249.6260 and/or visit RCRNaples.com.

“Residents are going to have every imaginable amenity and convenience at their fingertips, coupled with the legendary service of The Ritz-Carlton.  For those buyers looking for that quintessential combination of ‘new,’ waterfront, and world-class offerings in the heart of Naples, this is the ultimate choice.”
