Construction of Naples Reserve’s Lakeshore Club shows strong progress
Construction of Naples Reserve’s Lakeshore Club, the community’s main amenities center, is underway. iStar, Builder and Developer magazine’s Developer of the Year, expects the Lakeshore Club to open in November.
The lakefront club’s experience begins outdoors with the soothing sounds of water from a grand fountain in the center of the building’s circular driveway. Featuring welcoming Southern Coastal architecture with shake and HardiePlank lap siding, extensive cypress trim and metal roofs, the Lakeshore Club offers expansive alfresco areas, including covered poolside cabanas, sunny chaise lounges, a pavilion with an open-air tiki hut, and shady umbrellas along the lakefront beach.
“Residents will appreciate Lakeshore Club’s attention to detail,” said Mitch Brown, senior project manager of EECON Construction Services. “In addition to changes in elevations, there is a rock wall with cascading water above the pool and a beach area. One really great feature is the tiki bar pavilion, which overlooks the lake. I imagine it will be a favorite gathering spot.”
Enhanced by tropical landscaping and wide lake views, the club is designed to enhance the community’s barefoot-luxury lifestyle with resort-inspired amenities, including indoor and outdoor gathering destinations, recreational and leisure activities, a fitness center and a lakefront sandy beach. The resort-style pool, waterfall and junior Olympic-size lap pool create an inviting tropical oasis for residents. Children will enjoy their own splash pool.
With 5,160 air-conditioned square feet of space, the main building offers a grand hall and dining area with tile flooring, tongue-and-groove vaulted ceilings and a freestanding fireplace separating the two spaces. Bi-folding and double French doors open to a wrap-around porch, blurring the boundaries between inside and out. The building also will have a catering kitchen and walk-up snack bar.
Idyllic views of the 125-acre Eagle Lake and Lost Island – a water-accessible-only island with an oversized tiki hut – complete the tranquil ambience. Along the lakefront beach, volleyball and bocce ball courts beckon, along with a party pavilion, conversation fire pit and event lawn.
The Lakeshore Club’s 3,500-square-foot fitness center offers an aerobics area, free weights and exercise machines, with sweeping views of the pool and lake. Designed for life lived well along the water, Naples Reserve also will offer a lakefront tennis and pickleball complex, along with two miles of walking/biking paths and two dog parks.
Created amongst 22 lakes and sweeping open water views, the community emphasizes lakefront living with gracious Southern Coastal homes and a close connection to the water. Eagle Lake stretches a mile long against the Picayune Strand State Forest, a 76,000-acre state park with protected pinelands, cypress swamps, marshes and abundant wildlife. Lakes provide prime opportunities for kayaking, canoeing and paddleboarding.
The Outrigger Welcome Center, evocative of Key West with its palette of white, turquoise and coral, and a wraparound porch, provides information about Naples Reserve’s residential options and local attractions. The center overlooks Eagle Lake and is bordered by a dock with a boat basin. The area also includes a grand lawn, parking and a mail kiosk.
Naples Reserve residents enjoy complimentary one-year social memberships at Walker’s Hideaway Marina of Naples, a yacht club along the Gordon River offering a marina, indoor storage for 600 boats, two waterside restaurants, outdoor pool and sauna, and access to Naples Bay.
The community is located off U.S. 41, two miles southeast of the Collier Boulevard/CR 951 intersection and 10 minutes from I-75, Exit 101. Visit the Outrigger Welcome Center at 14891 Naples Reserve Circle, Naples, FL 34114, or log onto www.naplesreserve.com.
