Aura's rooftop fitness center popular amenity – Naples Daily News
Aura at Metropolitan Naples, the new, luxurious high-rise tower in the downtown Naples area, is proud of its infinity rooftop pool. But it’s not the only amenity situated 15-stories above the ground.
Aura also offers its residents a rooftop fitness center, which many will take advantage of and consider their routine a “workout with a view.”
“Those who love to exercise will rejoice at the fact the state-of-the-art fitness center is high above the ground and offers incredible views through the floor to ceiling glass windows, all while working out on outstanding fitness equipment,” stated Ed Gonzalez, the projects Director of Sales.
The air conditioned fitness center is planned to include the latest and most popular and beneficial exercise machines as well as some free weights.
Near the fitness center is Aura’s yoga studio, another amenity space which will be highly regarded by the men and women living in the tower.
Just outside the fitness center and yoga studio is the sky lounge with bar – another amenity residents will be more than happy to share with their friends.
And of course, the rooftop’s main amenity, which will be enjoyed by all, is the infinity pool.
“Never before in the history of the city of Naples have such phenomenal sky-high views of historic downtown Naples, the reflective waters of Naples Bay and the azure and white waves of the Gulf of Mexico, been available to buyers,” noted Gonzalez.
The other lifestyle amenities at Aura are also phenomenal and designed for the total enjoyment of residents.
On the 5th floor is the indoor and outdoor resident lounges, a luxurious overnight guest suite, a business center and conference room, outdoor kitchen with grilling area, a seating area and fire pits as well as a large golf putting green destine to witness many friendly conversations and deep debates while working – not so hard – on the “short” game.
Two private and secure, in-building parking spaces for homeowners are included, with convenient electric-vehicle charging stations available.
Aura’s rooftop and 5th floor amenities are capturing the imaginations of future residents – as are several additional benefits of living in the tower.
By simply taking the elevator down a few floors from their residences, owners can enjoy casual and fine dining restaurants, as well as explore the distinctive shops and boutiques planned for the street level of Metropolitan Naples.
The residences at Aura are also pretty spectacular in their own right. The mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom residences, many with a den, are priced from $2 to over $6 million.
The five penthouses range from 3,153 to 6,202 total living area, while the residences below them range in size from 1,898 to 3,923 total living area. Only two of the five penthouses remain available.
One is located on Aura’s 15th floor and is known as Penthouse 2.
The three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath home has 3,365 total square feet under air, plus two terraces. One terrace is off the Owner’s Suite and the other opens the living room and kitchen area to the outdoors. That’s convenient because this terrace is where you’ll find the outdoor grill.
Other highlights of the plan include a gourmet Chef-inspired kitchen with large island, luxurious cabinetry, high-quality gas cooktops by Wolf and sleek Sub-Zero refrigeration, guest suites with private baths, oversized laundry room with state-of-the-art washer and dryer, and master baths with private water closet, a shower and separate soaking tub.
Penthouse 2 is priced at $5 million.
The other Penthouse available is located on the tower’s amazing 5th floor and just steps away from the previously mentioned amenities.
The 5th floor’s Penthouse 5 has terraces that total 1,526 square feet. Add that to the residence itself, which has 3,768 square feet under air, and the total living area for the available Penthouse residence reaches 5,304 total square feet.
The amazing landscaped terrace of Penthouse 5, with a number of seating areas and the grill, is accessible from the residence’s living room, kitchen and owner’s suite and offers extraordinary views of paradise from three different sides of the home.
The terrace itself wraps around nearly the entire length of the outside of the penthouse residence. One can walk from the Owner’s Suite to the formal living room and never take a step inside.”
“That’s just one of the special features of the incredible plan. Another is its Owner’s Suite showers – one is inside and one is outside,” noted Gonzalez. “The shower outside is lusciously landscaped for privacy, like those offered in some uber-luxurious tropical resort suites.”
Penthouse 5 is priced at $4.9 million.
Metropolitan Naples is being developed by two of the most respected, long-time Naples residents and veteran developers, Fred Pezeshkan and Jerry Starkey.
