Introducing ONE NAPLES
In staying true to our commitment of keeping you informed of significant “in-and-around Vanderbilt Beach” community happenings, we wanted to bring the latest to your attention. It’s probably not a secret to most that there has been a parade of prominent local developers looking at potential mixed-use concepts for much of the land on and contiguous to the northeast corner of Vanderbilt Beach Road and Gulf Shore Drive for several years now.
What typically complicates these types of projects from coming to fruition in short order is that there are usually multiple parcels and associated residents and business owners that need to ultimately come together in order for a developer to proceed in earnest and, that takes time!
Stock Development, has been planning and is now proposing, ONE NAPLES to be developed. With the betterment of the Vanderbilt Beach community as backdrop, Stock has worked diligently for more than a year with area residents and business owners to successfully bring together a sufficient number of contiguous parcels allowing for the space needs of One Naples. We know this first hand as South Bay Realty was one of the first to endorse the projects proposed concept. Besides the aesthetic lift that One Naples will bring to our community, our rational to support was simple—as a more than two decade old Vanderbilt Beach community resident and growth advocate, we are keenly in favor of community endeavors such as this that will clearly promote sustained and, more likely, increased property values.
Our individual dealings with Stock Development and in particular Brian Stock were of the utmost in professionalism and integrity to do right by all involved and impacted by this proposed project. As part of our lengthy discussions, we were very fortunate to have been able to work out a business office transition from current offices to a prominent suite within One Naples should it come to fruition. Without question, this would represent a significant enhancement in South Bay’s continuing efforts to serve its customers and prospects exceedingly well!
The most positive takeaway, is Stock’s complete transparency in laying out its concept and soliciting community feedback—refreshing to say the least in our minds!
We sincerely hope that you find this information to be timely and useful and urge you to give us a call if you’d like to discuss any aspect of the proposed One Naples development.
