“The outstanding turnout for our event was all the more indicative of how this market has truly embraced our project,” said Léger-Wetzel.  “We have long been recognized as Southwest Florida’s No. 1 luxury homebuilder and one of the most successful in the United States — having an added, unparalleled understanding of luxury lifestyle amenities.  That confidence among consumers – both in our vision and the products we deliver — is on full display here.”

“This is a landmark moment for us,” said Brian Stock, CEO of STOCK Development.  “Our dream for this project has been meticulously crafted and perfected over the course of many years, so to be celebrating this latest accomplishment, propelling us forward, is a point of overwhelming pride.  Even before we began putting shovels in the ground, global interest was rapidly rising, as evidenced by the phenomenal response among homebuyers.  Savvy consumers know full well that what we are creating here, in the heart of one of Naples’ most beloved communities, will offer an opportunity for sophisticated, Gulf-front living that cannot be replicated.”

With an idyllic setting flanked by Vanderbilt Beach and the Gulf of Mexico to the west and Vanderbilt Lagoon to the north, The Residences, which are slated for delivery in 2026 will feature a limited collection of just 128 estate-like dwellings and penthouses spread throughout five boutique buildings, have been a standout among high-end homebuyers worldwide.

The six-acre development has surpassed 50% in sales, achieving $300 million in pre-construction transactions. This significant sales milestone is attributed to the project’s desirable features, such as access to Vanderbilt Beach, high-touch concierge services, generously sized designer homes, and over 50,000 square feet of amenities managed by The Ritz-Carlton.
