Interest in Naples’ new luxury tower has been described as “virtual”. The 15-story Aura at Metropolitan Naples includes 56 luxury residences and is located on a 5.3-acre parcel at the intersection of Fifth Avenue South and Davis Boulevard, a short walk or bike ride from downtown Naples. Naples.
Metropolitan Naples is developed by Fred Pezeshkan and Jerry Starkey, two of Naples’ most respected residents and veteran developers.
The dynamic duo hired Borges Architects, an award-winning, world-class architecture and consultancy firm to bring the metropolis of Naples to life. The leading real estate architectural firm is known for its creative designs in the United States as well as in several cities around the world.
Aura comprises a mix of beautifully designed two, three and four bedroom residences, many with a den. Prices range from $2 to over $6 million.
Residential features include expansive floor-to-ceiling glass windows and balcony doors, porcelain and wood flooring selections, wine walls and wet bars per plan, beautiful custom cabinetry, large rooms designed to maximizing outdoor views, outdoor living areas with gas grill stations and two secure garage spaces per residence.
Chef-inspired kitchens include a large workstation, dining islands, and high-end appliances such as Wolf gas cooktops and Sub-Zero refrigeration.
All owner’s suites offer expansive views, walk-in closets and luxurious bathrooms with his and hers vanities, private toilets, large walk-in showers and separate soaking tubs.
Two penthouses are also available. One is located on the 15th floor of Aura and is known as Penthouse 2. The three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath home has a total area of 3,365 square feet under air, plus two terraces. One terrace is next to the owner’s suite and the other opens the living room and kitchen to the outside. It’s convenient because this terrace is where you will find the outdoor grill.
“Other highlights of the plan,” according to Ed Gonzalez, project sales manager, “include a chef-inspired gourmet kitchen with a large island, luxurious cabinetry, high-quality gas cooktops from Wolf and a sleek Sub-Zero refrigeration, guest suites with private bathrooms, oversized laundry room with state-of-the-art washer and dryer, and master bathrooms with private toilets, showers, and separate tubs.”
Penthouse 2 is priced at $5 million.
The other available Penthouse is located on the 5th floor of the tower and just steps away from many of the building’s fun and thoughtful amenities. They include indoor/outdoor resident lounges, a luxury guest suite and a large putting green
Penthouse 5 on the 5th floor has terrace spaces totaling 1,526 square feet. Add that to the residence itself, which has 3,768 square feet under air, and the total living area of the Penthouse unit available reaches 5,304 square feet in total.
Penthouse 5’s incredible landscaped terrace, with multiple seating areas and the grill, is accessible from the residence’s living room, kitchen, and owner’s suite and offers extraordinary views of paradise from three different sides of the house.
“The terrace itself wraps almost the entire length of the exterior of the penthouse residence,” Gonzalez said. “You can walk from the owner’s suite to the formal living room and never step inside.”
This is just one of the peculiarities of this incredible plan. Another is its Owner’s Suite showers – one inside and one outside.
“The one outside is lavishly appointed for privacy, like those offered in some ultra-luxury tropical resort suites,” Gonzalez recalls.
The Penthouse 5 is priced at $4.9 million.
Aura’s floor plans have all been designed to entertain family and friends and its Penthouse residences take the entertainment factor and indoor/outdoor lifestyle to an even higher level.
“Throughout the year, and especially during the winter months, we welcome guests into our homes,” Gonzalez noted. “What better place to strike up conversations than stepping out onto your private patio with seating areas and the outdoor BBQ.”
It’s not just the luxury penthouses and residences that attract buyers, it’s also Aura’s incredible amenities, including its rooftop infinity pool.
Aura features the tallest pool in downtown and is the only outdoor pool offering residents and their guests picturesque views of downtown Naples, the beautiful reflective waters of the Bay of Naples and the rolling waves azure and white of the Gulf of Mexico.
However, the infinity pool isn’t the only rooftop amenity. Those who like to exercise will also rejoice that the state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio are also here.
High above the ground and boasting incredible views through floor-to-ceiling windows, residents will enjoy working out on exceptional fitness equipment or taking on the most demanding or relaxing yoga routines from the perfect perspective.
Plus, just steps from the infinity pool is another amazing amenity – an outdoor lounge area with bar.
Aura’s rooftop and 5th floor amenities capture the imagination of future residents, as do several additional benefits of living in the tower.
By simply taking the elevator a few floors from their residences, owners can enjoy casual and fine dining, as well as explore the distinctive shops and boutiques provided at the street level of the tower.
