Moorings Park Grande Lake Showcases Builder Commitment to Luxury Comfort and Care
NAPLES, FL–London Bay Development Group, the development arm of London Bay Homes, one of Southwest Florida’s top luxury custom homebuilders, has announced the closing of the first phase of Moorings Park Grande Lake—a partnership with Moorings Park.
A vibrant senior living lifestyle replete with resort-inspired amenities, award-winning dining options, and premier healthcare services, the newest Life Plan Community is situated on 55 acres in the heart of Naples.
Phase 1 of Grande Lake includes three, seven-story buildings totaling 47 high-end Independent Living residences, ranging in size from 2,210 square feet to 3,230 square feet, and offering panoramic, one-of-a kind vistas of expansive lakes along the stunning Naples Grande Golf Course. The first residents have begun moving in, with the remaining expected to move in over the next three months.
“This has been a very unusual time to open a new community. Truthfully, we thought about pushing the opening date back, but several of our residents had already sold their previous homes and needed to move right away,” said Daniel Lavender, Moorings Park Institute’s CEO. “To accomplish this, we developed protocols and procedures that allowed us to proceed with the utmost safety of our residents in mind. We’ve also generated strong sales despite these turbulent times, underscoring the trust people have in this Moorings Park and London Bay partnership.”
“While this is an unprecedented situation, we believe the best way we can support Moorings Park Grande Lake’s residents is by providing them with a place that can meet their healthcare needs and exceed their desires for exceptional luxury comfort at home during social distancing and self-isolation,” said Mark Wilson, president of London Bay Development Group.
For three decades, London Bay Homes has provided a personalized approach to homebuilding through its brand promise of “Private Label Living,” which ensures quality construction, attention-to-detail and a steadfast commitment to ensuring each home is a reflection of the homeowners’ needs and desires.
“By melding together our brand promise with Moorings Park’s reputation as an innovator in luxury active retirement living, Grande Lake is delivering a community for boomers and seniors unlike any other community in the country,” added Wilson.
Moorings Park Grande Lake offers spacious open floor plans with ideal space for entertaining family and friends, expansive lanais for evening enjoyment, as well as open kitchen designs with island counter space.
Choices abound for interior design options through London Bay Homes’ Selection Studio, which offers residents’ the ability to personalize their homes within the 3,500-square-foot studio. Offering a number of vignettes featuring an array of finishing selections—from flooring and cabinetry to countertops and faucets—the Selection Studio is staffed by a team of design professionals who can assist in answering questions and creating custom designs showcasing the latest trends in the building industry. This approach allows each resident to touch, feel and experience the lifestyle they desire resulting in a truly individualized experience. The ability to personalize their residence to this level is unrivaled in the market.
Over the last two weeks, the community has also closed more than $77 million in sales by having people safely mail in their contracts and utilize wire transfers. Entrance fees start at $1.5 million, and are 70 percent refundable. Assisted Living, Memory Care and Concierge Physician services are included.
“While Phase 2 is now under construction, there are residences available that will provide for occupancy this time next year. Additionally, there are a few remaining residences still available for immediate occupancy in Phase 1,” said Tom Mann, Moorings Park’s vice president of sales and marketing.
Residents who purchase in Phase 1 will enjoy the added benefit of a membership to Naples Grande Golf Club until December 2021. The membership includes golfing privileges on Naples Grande Golf Club’s 18-hole championship golf course, as well as dining in Naples Grande’s elegant clubhouse with gorgeous westerly views of the 18th hole.
With a nod toward those who prefer tides over turf, residents will enjoy all the benefits of Naples Grande Beach Resort and its Har-Tru tennis courts, fitness center and spa, resort-style pool and beach, and preferred pricing on hotel rooms and dining.
Residents can also take advantage of onsite amenities at The Clubhouse at Moorings Park Grande Lake, now under construction. The facility will feature both casual and fine dining venues, including a poolside Bistro as well as a lakefront resort-style pool and cabanas. A state-of-the-art fitness center with shimmering lake views will offer the perfect place to start an active day, while a best-in-its-class golf simulator, a theater and a salon and spa are all planned as well. The clubhouse includes 16 residences with adjacency to all of the amenities.
Active individuals will also enjoy the lakeside yoga pavilion boardwalk and pier that overlook the 28-acre lake.
The Center for Healthy Living will also be located in the clubhouse. The Center is home to rehabilitation services, as well as the Care 360 concierge healthcare program, which was developed in partnership with NCH Healthcare System. Services are available to residents of Moorings Park, and concierge physicians are accessible by appointment, plus 24/7 access via phone, text or email.
The Moorings Park Grande Lake sales team is available by phone, email or virtual conference to answer questions. A variety of virtual tools are available for prospective residents to access from the safety of their current locations—from 3D tours, to online floor plans and interactive photo galleries.
Moorings Park Grande Lake is located on the south side of Golden Gate Parkway, between Airport-Pulling and Livingston roads, and inside the entrance to the Naples Grande Golf Club.
Suffolk, a national construction company with a strong presence in Southwest Florida, was the general contractor for the project. “With their vast experience in construction management and logistics, they were an ideal partner. The collaboration resulted in one of the most efficient building processes,” said Wilson.
London Bay Development Group, a member of the London Bay family of companies, focuses on development of for sale residential and senior living communities in the luxury market, with an emphasis on cutting-edge design and a customer-centric approach.
