Caribbean Gardens is a 22-acre conceptual master plan for a mixed-use community in Naples, Florida. The project program includes 244 residential units, a 130-room hotel, 45,000 square feet of office space, and 15,000 square feet of retail space, a restaurant, and a clubhouse.
The community is designed to be highly environmentally friendly, maintaining natural buffers and vegetation. The site runoff is connected to a filter marsh system that would cleanse runoff water before it is discharged into the river. The Naples Zoo and proposed county passive park, county greenway, and Conservancy would all be connected to the site via a pedestrian circulation system.
The main feature of the plan is a large public gathering area for shows, art galleries, exhibitions, and music. The gathering space is visible form the main arterial road and would generate a substantial amount of interest from the public, as well as create a great attraction for residents of the community.
