The development Metropolitan Naples is taking shape, with its first high-rise tower well underway.
The first tower ― a luxury apartment development, known as Ascent in East Naples ― broke ground nearly a year ago. Concrete has been poured up to the eighth floor.
Construction won’t be finished until next year. There are still seven more floors to go, before reaching the roof.
“We’re a little more than halfway there now,” said Deane Dolben, president of The Dolben Co., one of the partners in Ascent.
The tower is rising in an area known as the Gateway Triangle, named for its pizza-like shape. It sits between Davis Boulevard to the north and U.S. 41 to the south in East Naples.
Apartments, big and small
Ascent will offer 270 apartments, ranging from 576-square-foot studios to 2,133-square-foot penthouses.
The building will include a large 6,500-square-foot restaurant and a smaller 1,200-square foot retail store, along with a five-story parking garage. The apartments will start on the third floor, wrapping around the garage, which is built into the development, Dolben explained.
