Aura residents to enjoy great views from the roof

From the rooftop of the 15-story Aura at Metropolitan Naples, every resident will enjoy the view of downtown Naples, Naples Bay and even the Gulf of Mexico.

When it comes to high-rise living, it’s often the view that captivates potential buyers. That’s why Aura at Metropolitan Naples is so popular. It’s located at the intersection of Fifth Avenue South and Davis Boulevard, and offers a stunning view of historic downtown Naples.

Aura’s residents don’t have to hop in their cars to enjoy the lifestyle of downtown Naples. That’s because it is just a quick walk or bike ride away. And the view of downtown Naples is enjoyed by everyone.

 “We have a very enviable location and that means enviable views, not just for a few, but for every resident living at Aura,” said Ed Gonzalez, the project’s Director of Sales. “That’s because every resident has access to the tower’s roof and the view it offers of historic downtown Naples. But, the view also extends to the shimmering waters of Naples Bay and the azure and white waves of the Gulf of Mexico. You could say it’s like owning a penthouse, and having a penthouse view, no matter which floor in the tower you actually live on or which direction your residence actually faces.”

The views offered from the rooftop are spectacular, but so are the amenities located there.

“The centerpiece of our rooftop amenities just might be the infinity pool,” stated Gonzalez.  “Whether in the pool or lounging next to it, our residents will be able to enjoy the amazing views from the top floor.”

The pool and its sun deck with chaise lounges aren’t the only amenities 160 feet above the ground at Aura. Also located on the rooftop is the tower’s state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, and  an exciting outdoor lounge with bar area.

“Working out and staying in shape 160 feet in the sky, all while taking in the incredible views due to the floor to ceiling glass windows, will be a very unique experience for every resident and a great way to start the day,” remarked Gonzalez.

And when the day is done, another trip to the roof for a conversation, a cocktail and a spectacular sunset at the outdoor rooftop lounge is the perfect way to welcome the evening.

“It truly is a great place to meet new friends, entertain old friends or simply relax and enjoy the gorgeous panoramic views of paradise, Up on the Roof,” concludes Gonzalez.

The amazing lifestyle amenities aren’t limited to Aura’s roof. Some can also be found on the tower’s 5th floor.

On the lower floor are the indoor and outdoor resident lounges, an outdoor spa, a luxurious overnight guest suite, a business center and conference room, an outdoor kitchen with grilling area, a seating area with fire pits and a large golf putting green.

Aura’s rooftop and 5th floor amenities are capturing the imaginations of future residents – as are several additional benefits of living in the tower.

“By simply taking the elevator down a few floors from their residences, owners will be able to enjoy casual and fine dining restaurants, as well as explore the distinctive shops and unique boutiques planned for the street level of Aura at Metropolitan Naples,” stated Gonzalez.

He added, “Many of our buyers have described Aura as a ‘destination all its own.’ Some days they might feel like taking a short stroll downtown to enjoy everything it has to offer, and on other days they might want to stay closer to home and enjoy everything Metropolitan Naples has to offer. It’s great having choices – and fun, so close by.”

Phenomenal just might be the best word to describe Aura’s rooftop views, amenities and ground level establishments. It could also be the word to describe the tower’s 56 luxury residences. They were designed by Borges Architects, an award-winning, world class architectural and consulting firm, known for its creative designs within the United States as well as in several cities internationally.

Aura includes a mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom residences, ranging in size from 1,898 to 3,923 square feet of total living area, and priced from $1.9 million.

Residential features include expansive floor-to-ceiling glass windows and balcony doors, porcelain and wood floor selections, wine walls and wet bars per plan, fine custom 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.

Of the five original penthouses at Aura, only two remain available.

Penthouse 5 is a four-bedroom plus den/four-and-a-half-bath home with 3,768 square feet under air and 1,526 square feet of outdoor terraces and balconies. It is located on the tower’s 5th level and is priced at $4.9 million.

Located on the 15th floor is Penthouse 2, a three-bedroom plus den/three-bath home with 3,083 square feet under air and 3,365 total square feet, including two terraces. One terrace is off the Owner’s Suite and the other opens the living room and kitchen area to the outdoors. That’s convenient because this terrace is where you’ll find the outdoor grill. Penthouse 2 is priced at $5 million.

Aura at Metropolitan Naples is being developed by Jerry Starkey and Fred Pezeshkan, two long-time Naples residents and well-respected veteran Southwest Florida developers.

Aura’s sales gallery is located at 365 Fifth Avenue South, Suite 104A, in downtown Naples. That’s the northeast corner of the intersection of Fifth Avenue South and 3rd Street South. It is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and by appointment anytime.

Your hosts at the gallery are Ed Gonzalez and Sharyl Wicks of Metropolitan Naples Realty.
