Developer Anthony Fortino plans to build condo units and hotel rooms on land along U.S. 41 near Naples.
Fortino submitted plans to Collier County for a mixed-use nine-story structure at the corner of U.S. 41 and Davis Boulevard, just outside Naples city limits.
Construction could start by October, said Fortino of Fortino Construction and Development LLC, with offices in Naples and Hackensack, New Jersey.
The development site, now home to an automotive body and rim shop, is adjacent to five acres that Collier County sold to another developer planning to build an 11-story hotel and an 18-story condo there.
Collier County Commissioner Penny Taylor told the Naples Daily News, “It’s kind of becoming hotel row … It’s certainly a step above what’s there now.”
