Ronto Purchases Naples Beachfront Development Site in Partnership with Wheelock Street Capital

The Ronto Group announced it has purchased the Naples Mansion House property at 1601 Gulf Shore Boulevard North in partnership with Wheelock Street Capital.  The 5.25-acre beachfront condominium development site includes 482 linear feet of beach frontage on the Gulf of Mexico.  Ronto and Wheelock envision creating a low-density, highly exclusive development with fewer than 50 estate sized ultra-luxury residences.  The site plan and floor plans are currently in development.  Situated adjacent to Lowdermilk Park in one of Naples most preferred neighborhoods, the 1601 Gulf Shore Boulevard North site presents unobstructed, protected Gulf views to the south and west while providing direct access to a wide array of the finest dining options and vibrant entertainment corridors the Naples market has to offer, including Old Naples and Waterside Shops.  Interested parties are encouraged to register at

“While our partnership with Wheelock Street Capital has brought us many phenomenal projects, 1601 Gulf Shore Boulevard North certainly stands out,” said Anthony Solomon, owner of The Ronto Group.  “Beachfront condominium development in Naples is incredibly limited due to the scarcity of sites directly on the sand.  Beachfront condominiums in Naples have been virtually non-existent since the turn of the century.  1601 Gulf Shore Boulevard North is perfectly positioned to capture the pent-up demand for luxury condominiums in the City of Naples.  We are thrilled to have this rare opportunity to create a pinnacle of ultra-luxury living, with 482 feet of beachfront at one of Naples’ most coveted addresses.  We look forward to bringing this beachfront address to the ultra-luxury market with a product that will be as unmatched as its views.”

The Ronto Group has established a legacy of excellence that spans more than half a century. The company has emerged as the most active luxury condominium developer in Southwest Florida, and one of the most active in the State of Florida.  Ronto processed sales agreements worth $365 million in 2021.  Ronto’s communities offer the pinnacle of luxury living, including championship golf courses, water views, spectacular residences, clubhouses, and recreational amenities. The company’s expertise in land development and construction has been recognized internationally.

Ronto is continuing to expand its collection of luxury developments.  The firm’s two new high-rises within Bonita Bay have redefined the high-rise living experience in Southwest Florida. The completed and sold out 27-floor, 120-unit Seaglass tower at Bonita Bay features open-concept tower residence floor plans, luxurious finishes, common areas with an on-trend look, and an amenity rich lifestyle. The Seaglass residences offer expansive views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Omega is a new 27-floor high-rise tower being built by The Ronto Group and will be the final luxury high-rise tower built at Bonita Bay. Construction is on schedule for completion in 4th quarter 2022.

Construction is on schedule for completion in 4th quarter 2022.  Omega will feature 67 residences, including 63 tower residences and four penthouses.  Architect Robert Swedroe and Ronto created a three unit per floor approach that allowed the residences to be wider and more spacious than any of the high-rises under construction in Southwest Florida.

The occupied Phase I building at Eleven Eleven Central is sold out.  Phase II is also sold out and construction is expected to be completed by second quarter.  Construction of Phase III is underway, and the building is expected to be completed in first quarter 2023.

The floor plans offer three bedrooms plus a den with three and a half baths or four bedrooms plus a den with four and a half baths.
