On-on-One: Anthony Solomon, Executive Vice President and Owner of The Ronto Group
January 2, 2018
Few people have played a bigger role in the changing face of downtown Naples than Anthony Solomon. From his perch atop The Ronto Group, Solomon is overseeing two of the most substantial residential developments the city has seen in the past 15-plus years. Naples Square and a condominium community on Central Avenue sit at the center of a new wave of building located just off Fifth Avenue South. And their gravity might be substantial enough to create their own commercial and dining ecosystem. (This is in addition to two high-rises in Bonita Bay and more than a thousand lots in the Orangetree area.) Before he could launch sales for the new Central Avenue development, however, which will put hundreds of condos starting at $500,000-plus and likely soaring to more than $1 million on the market, Solomon and his team faced what was surprisingly the greatest struggle of all: coming up with its name. They eventually christened it Eleven Eleven Central, a play on its address.
