AVE MARIA DEVELOPMENT SEES COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE RESURGENCE
NAPLES, FL., – May 10, 2021 – Ave Maria Development announces that activity in the commercial real estate market has continued to grow within the eastern Collier County town. Demand for office and retail space is booming along with the master-planned community’s record-breaking new home sales. New commercial additions to the town include Loyola Professional Suites, a new flex commercial building in the Ave Maria Park of Commerce, and several new businesses in the Ave Maria Town Center.
The new Loyola Professional Suites will open in July 2021 and include 13 executive suites ranging from 120 square feet to 250 square feet. With more people moving to Ave Maria and working remotely this past year, the demand for a workspace outside the home has only increased. Located at 5072 Annunciation Circle, 2nd floor, the individual professional office suites are over 75% leased by various types of businesses including: a marketing firm, an attorney, logistics and an IT company. Amenities include a lobby, two conference rooms, open spaces, lounge seating, and a kitchen area with coffee service. Heather Grey, Principal with G2 Studios and designer of the new Loyola Suites, states, “The environment is pleasing, yet vibrant with mid-century inspired furniture, urban accents with warm woods, charcoal coated fixtures and the interior offices and rooms with glass windows and doors bring light into the space.” The modern industrial aesthetic with high ceilings, wood floors, and plenty of natural light is a perfect setting for holding meetings and conducting business.
Ave Maria Development is estimated to break ground June 1, 2021 on a single story 20,000 square-foot commercial flex building in the 17-acre Ave Maria Park of Commerce. The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2022. Traditional retail frontage with roll-up bay doors in the back of the building will be offered which is ideal for an array of businesses desiring a multi-purpose space. “As a result of the unprecedented growth in Ave Maria, we decided to develop a commercial flex building in town where our entrepreneurial residents are able to start or expand their businesses and prosper with the community,” comments Cee Cee Marinelli, director of development for Ave Maria. “By offering flexible workspaces and leasing options, we plan to accommodate small businesses, start-up companies, and the expansion of existing businesses.”
The Ave Maria Town Center is seeing an influx of new locally owned businesses opening their doors and expanding their services. Several new retailers chose Ave Maria for their business as the Southwest Florida market is more and more sought after. The open-air walkable Town Center spans over 100,000 square feet and serves as the central hub of the community with over 30 merchants including restaurants, shops, and services.
