The Lutgert Companies unveils the Residences at Mercato

February 5, 2015

The Lutgert Companies today announced plans to develop the Residences at Mercato, a gated enclave of 52 single-family homes in the urban-style retail, office and residential community.

Priced from $1.2 million, Residences at Mercato will include 33 single-family, detached courtyard homes and 19 villas. All homes will include first-floor master suites and outdoor living areas with pool. The Lutgert Companies expect to begin construction in early 2015.

"We expect these new residences to attract a mix of domestic and international buyers, as well as both full- time and seasonal Naples residents," said Howard B. Gutman, President of The Lutgert Companies.

"Residences at Mercato will be a gated enclave with convenient walkability to enjoy the Mercato lifestyle," Gutman added. "Everything residents need or want - including the beach - is within minutes of their home."

Matthew Kragh, AIA, is the architect for the community. Kragh’s firm, MHK, specializes in the design of single- and multi-family residential, office, mixed-use developments and master-planned communities.

Premier Sotheby’s International Realty is the exclusive sales and marketing representative for the Residences at Mercato. With more than 700 associates and employees in 22 locations along Florida’s Gulf Coast and the Carolinas, the luxury real estate brokerage ranks 37th among the 500 Largest Brokers in the U.S., according to the annual Real Trends survey of the top U.S. residential sellers. Year-to-date (2014), the company has closed more than 4,000 transactions resulting in more than $3 billion in sales volume.

Strong residential sales within Mercato are complemented by the success of its retail and office components. Whole Foods, Nordstrom Rack, The Capital Grille, Silverspot Cinemas, Venture X, and other new tenants such as Tommy Bahama, add to the appeal of a lifestyle where retail opportunities are within walking distance of home, yet minutes from Naples’ natural, leisure and cultural amenities.
