Blake Gable Upbeat about Future in Talk to Ave Maria Residents

The developers of the town of Ave Maria are actively looking at a number of new projects in the town, including an assisted living center and an apartment complex, Barron Collier President Blake Gable told gathering of residents Thursday evening.

After thanking residents for their patience during the economic downturn, Mr. Gable said “It is nice to finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.”

“We’re off to the best sales year since the first year we opened (in 2007),” Mr. Gable said, adding that 32 houses have been sold in the last five weeks.

The scope of future developments outlined by Mr. Gable included those which have been announced, such as the new Maple Ridge residential development and the plans by Arthrex to break ground on a second 120,000-square-foot building, to those under active consideration, such as an assisted living center and an apartment complex, to those that are more speculative, such as a larger-scale health-care facility to serve Eastern Collier County.

“Assisted living and apartments are two things that are next up from a real estate development standpoint,” Mr. Gable said, indicating that he hoped to be able to move forward with those in the next 12 months.

The area near the new Arthrex manufacturing plant on Oil Well Rd. figured prominently in plans discussed by Mr. Gable. He said that a group interested in building an assisted-living center is looking at a location near Arthrex and he also said that the area to the west of Arthrex – where a lake has been created due to excavation for fill for the Oil Well Rd. expansion – will be transformed in to a 150-170 acre park of lakes, trails, bike paths and picnic areas that will be an amenity for all Ave Maria residents. That development, he said, would likely take about two years.
