The 15-story high-rise tower, Aura at Metropolitan Naples, features 56 luxury residences above a number of outstanding commercial businesses including, restaurants, boutique shops and office spaces, is attracting current Naples residents looking for a less stressful, more fun lifestyle.
Ed Gonzalez, the Director of Sales for Metropolitan Naples, said the tower has become a very popular place to live for several reasons.
“Many of our future Aura residents told me they love the fact they’ll have a great home with outstanding amenities just a short elevator ride away,” noted Gonzalez. “In addition, they’ve told me having restaurants, shops and office spaces in the community was also a major reason for their purchase.”
“It’s all about options,” claimed a future resident. “A short elevator ride above me are the amazing rooftop amenities. While a short elevator ride below me are even more amenities, as well as a number of outstanding restaurants and shops inside and just outside our tower. I love the idea of having everything so close by.”
Another future Aura resident, Tom Betrus, a boating enthusiast, agrees. It’s all about choices.
“In addition to the shops and restaurants at the nearby marina, Metropolitan Naples will also complement the area with even more great shopping and dining venues. The only decision my wife and I will have to make is, ‘where do we want to go’? It’s great having such amazing options.”
Betrus and his future neighbors are also ecstatic with Aura’s ideal location.
“You have restaurants and shops in the community, across the street at the marina and even more in downtown Naples, which is just a short walk or bike ride away,” noted Betrus. “There isn’t another lifestyle choice like this in the downtown area. Aura is unique. Metropolitan Naples is unique. And both will be a fun place to live.”
Speaking of fun, Aura features the highest pool in the downtown area and is the only infinity sky pool of its kind within miles.
“From Aura’s roof, our residents and their guests will also enjoy picturesque views of the reflective waters of Naples Bay, the calm ripples of the Gulf of Mexico, and the beautiful lights of downtown Naples,” remarked Gonzalez.
However, the infinity pool isn’t the only rooftop amenity. Those who love to exercise will also love the sky-high, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio.
Gonzalez added, “160 feet above the ground and offering incredible views through the floor to ceiling glass windows, our residents will enjoy working out on outstanding fitness equipment or pushing through the most demanding or relaxing yoga routines, from the perfect perspective.”
Also, just steps away from the infinity pool is another amazing amenity – an outdoor lounge and bar, the perfect place to cool down and watch a spectacular Naples sunset.
Aura’s 5th floor amenities are also capturing the imaginations of future residents. They include the indoor and outdoor resident lounges, an outdoor spa, an outdoor kitchen with grilling area, a seating area with fire pits, a large golf putting green and a luxurious overnight guest suite, business center and conference room – all high above the ground level.
The same holds true for resident parking. That’s because all residences receive two assigned parking spaces and in a safe and secure concrete garage located on the second, third or fourth floors.
“Being able to park my Bentley in a strong, safe environment and between 15 to 30 feet above FEMA gives me peace-of-mind that it’ll be protected from the elements,” stated another future resident who is moving from The Moorings.
Borges Architects, an award-winning, world class architectural and consulting firm, was hired to bring Metropolitan Naples to life. The major real estate architectural firm is known for its creative designs within the United States as well as in several cities internationally.
Aura includes a mix of beautifully designed two-, three- and four-bedroom residences, many with a den. Prices range from $2.2 to over $6 million.
“It’s the maintenance-free lifestyle that’s also attracting current Naples residents to Aura,” commented Gonzalez. “Many of those buyers already live in big homes and want to maintain the basic size of their residence, but rid themselves of the responsibility of its upkeep. Others want to downsize slightly, yet maintain their active lifestyle. In both cases, we got them covered.”
Residences feature expansive floor-to-ceiling glass windows and balcony doors, porcelain and wood floor selections, wine walls and wet bars per plan, fine cabinetry, great rooms designed to maximize outdoor views, outdoor living areas with grilling stations and two secure garage spaces per residence.
The Chef-inspired kitchens include a large workstation, dining islands and top-of-the-line appliances such as Wolf gas cooktops and Sub-Zero refrigeration.
All owner suites feature vast views, walk-in closets and luxurious baths with his and her vanities, private water closets, large walk-in showers and separate soaking tubs.
“Aura’s floor plans were all designed for entertaining family and friends, both inside the residence and outside on the terraces,” noted Gonzalez.
In addition to a number of residences, two penthouses are also available.
One is located on Aura’s 15th floor and is known as Penthouse 2.
It is a three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath home with 3,083 square feet under air and 3,365 total square feet, including two terraces. Penthouse 2 is priced at $5.35 million.
The other penthouse available is located on the tower’s amazing 5th floor and just steps away from the previously mentioned amenities.
Penthouse 5 is a four-bedroom plus den/four-and-a-half-bath plan with 3,680 square feet under air and 5,304 total square feet including 1,404 square feet of terraces. Penthouse 5 is priced at $5.1 million.
Metropolitan Naples is being developed by two of the most respected, long-time Naples residents and veteran developers, Fred Pezeshkan and Jerry Starkey.
