Canadian homebuilder Mattamy Homes paid $8.7 million for a 37.25-acre tract in Naples near a botanical garden center.
Mattamy paid $233,557 per acre for the site across from the Naples Botanical Gardens at 4580 Bayshore Drive in Naples.
The Canadian homebuilder bought the land from an affiliate of Los Angeles-based Colony Capital, a private equity fund and an active real estate investor in southwest Florida.
Mattamy’s developments in southwest Florida include Compass Landing in Naples, Enclave at Forest Lakes in Sarasota, Harmony at Lakewood Ranch and Lakeshore Preserve in Tampa.
The acquired land is the former site of an apartment building razed in 2010 for a mixed-use development that failed to unfold.
Ashley Bloom, chair of the national land and development arm of brokerage firm SVN, represented Colony Capital in the transaction, and SVN senior advisor Ron Zeigler represented Mattamy.
