Islandwalk Town Center and Town Homes, Naples, Florida
A 19-acre tract in the center of a 2,000 unit residential development known as the Islandwalk DRI. The development on this tract consisted of a 70,000 square foot town center with retail and recreation facilities to serve the projectís 4,000 residents. Next to the town center a traditional neighborhood development composed of 120 town homes with rear alleys and on-street guest parking in front.
David was responsible for taking onionskin sketches of the various components and developing a comprehensive plan that would integrate the two projects facilities and provide a pedestrian friendly environment where residents could live, shop and play.
Bayfront, Naples, Florida
A 9-acre tract in downtown Naples comprised of eight structures, a three-story office building, five mixed-use five-story buildings and two two-story parking garages. The first floor of the mixed-use buildings was designated commercial with the four upper stories consisting of condominiums. The completed site has 157 condominiums and over 100,000 square feet of commercial space. The site was previously a grocery shopping center that failed in the 1980ís. Planning the placement of structures, utilities and transportation facilities was challenging and involved the coordinated effort of many professionals.
David was responsible for managing the projects construction and making plan and field changes as necessary to minimize delay. Shortly after utility construction started, a field condition not known to the design engineer, forced a temporary halt of construction while the entire utility and drainage system were redesigned to accommodate the field condition.
Grand Central Station, Naples, Florida
This 25-acre tract in downtown Naples is across the street from Bayfront and has a 160,000 square foot shopping center that is being used for medical offices. The owner, Naples Community Hospital, wanted to capitalize on the success of Bayfront by demolishing the existing facilities and constructing a new multi-building development with retail on the first floor and apartments on the upper floors. The large tract was to be subdivided by extending 3rd Avenue South through the parcel and connecting to Bayfrontís entrance.
David was a member of the planning team charged with creating the new plan for Grand Central Station. As the planning stage was near complete, a local referendum was passed by voters limiting the height of new buildings to 42 feet. The property owner felt the height limitation would not allow the property to developed to its potential and stopped all work.
