Dunes of Naples undergoes expansion


Naples, Florida (June 7, 2018) – The Dunes of Naples, a private residential community in Naples, Florida, is currently in the construction phase of an estimated $9.2 million Amenities Center renovation and expansion project. Construction began in mid-April and is expected to be completed in January 2019. Lotus Architecture designed the new Amenities Center and Gates Construction is the general contractor for the project.  

The new coastal-themed Amenities Center replaces and enhances the community’s 17-year-old Plantation Club recreational complex. Highlights of the project include:

  • A new 25,000+ square-foot clubhouse with a private dining room; an indoor/outdoor bar; and a flexible club room for events that serve food such as fashion shows, bingo, trivia nights, comedy shows and more. 
  • The second floor of the new clubhouse will house the community’s administrative offices; a community room for meetings and conferences; a business center; and an activity room. 
  • The club’s new Tiki Bar, a prominent and popular feature of the former Planation Club, will be triple the size of the former structure, and will include a new short-order kitchen that will expedite service.
  • Seating around the pool area will increase significantly. The renovated pool area will include a kid’s fountain area, fire pit tables and a lounge area in a new courtyard
  • The wellness and fitness center will be substantially larger adding two group exercise rooms, two rooms dedicated to massages or physical therapy, flex rooms for small-group activities and events as well as a new tennis office and pro-shop.

“When this project is complete, our owners and guests will be amazed by the new Amenities Center,” said Alan Ghiciac, club manager, The Club at the Dunes. “The new facility will offer improved dining experiences, additional recreational amenities and more comfortable social spaces for owners and guests. We’re excited to have this project in motion.”
The Dunes of Naples is comprised of seven high rise towers of high-end luxury condos and 40 luxury coach homes.
