Downtown Naples Promenade Plans Approved

A six person panel approved the design plans for the Downtown Naples Promenade to be known as The Prom on Fifth, set to open in mid-2018.After lengthy consideration, design plans for the downtown Naples promenade were recently approved.  A six person panel unanimously voted in favor of Naples Bay Center’s ideas for the development.  This sets it up for a projected completion date of mid-2018.

The nearly two acre parcel across from Kelly’s Fish House has been vacant for many years.  The downtown Naples promenade plans suggest transforming this into a beautiful waterfront dining area.  The single-story building design includes space for five separate restaurants and rooftop as well as outdoor seating for as many as 450 people.  To appeal even further to boaters, 10 dock spaces have been allocated for patrons of these restaurants.  Who wouldn’t want to take a stroll along the boardwalk after dinner?

Even before any ground has been broken, sixteen restaurants currently vie for inclusion in the downtown Naples promenade.  The design team wants to fill the space with an eclectic group of restaurants.  They envision Naples residents visiting The Prom on Fifth, downtown Naples’ name for the new promenade, several times a week without eating the same type of cuisine more than once.  For example, you could visit a steakhouse on Monday evening.  Stop in for a healthy lunch in another restaurant on Wednesday.  Then, enjoy a delicious seafood dinner on Friday.  During the week, restaurants would close at 10pm.  Weekend hours would extend to 11pm before closing.

With all the dining options Naples residents enjoy currently, waterfront dining remains scarce.  The downtown Naples promenade would change that.  It also gets rid of the ragged look of a large vacant parcel near the water.
