NAPLES, FLORIDA, August 2, 2023 – The construction of Ascent at Metropolitan Naples, a joint venture involving The Dolben Company, Inc., (“Dolben”), GFI Development, LLC (“GFI”) and SK2 Capital (“SK2”), is advancing at an impressive pace. The luxury apartment development, located at 1950 Mayfair Street in Naples, Florida, broke ground in September 2022. Currently, concrete has been poured up to the eighth floor and the first occupancy is slated for Fall 2024.

When completed, Ascent at Metropolitan Naples will boast 270-units, ranging from exquisite 576-square-foot studios to spacious 2,133-square-foot penthouses, complemented by restaurant/retail space as well as six stories of garage parking below the residences. Community amenities will include 24/7 concierge services, a 7th floor infinity pool and sundeck, state-of-the-art two-story fitness center, pet spa, and more. Apartment finishes will feature keyless entry, quartz countertops, luxury vinyl plank flooring, stainless steel appliances, and breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico – spanning from Port Royal to Sanibel Island. 

Strategically situated near downtown Naples, 5th Avenue and the Gulf of Mexico beaches, Ascent aims to revitalize the gateway to Naples as part of the larger Metropolitan Naples master plan. Spanning across a 5.3-acre parcel, Metropolitan Naples is undergoing an extraordinary transformation into a vibrant mixed-use community. Consisting of three 15-story buildings, this iconic development will have entrances accessible from both U.S. 41, past 5th Avenue South, and Davis Boulevard. The ground floors of each building will feature dining options and/or unique boutique retail shops, creating a vibrant atmosphere. Parking will be seamlessly incorporated within the initial floors of each building, with convenient valet parking services available.

Metropolitan Naples is a place where people can live, work, and enjoy their leisure time, all in one exceptional location. In many ways, Metropolitan Naples represents the next chapter in the vibrant lifestyle that extends from the Gulf beaches to the east along 5th Avenue South, continuing a legacy of progress and liveliness.
