Plaza on Third Street demolition

Demolition work continues on The Plaza on Third Street, a decades-old shopping center that had been mostly vacant for many years in downtown Naples.  Honc Destruction has been working this month leveling the old plaza’s buildings between the Sea Salt restaurant on Third Street South and the Olde Naples Building on the corner of Broad Avenue and Third. Old Naples Hotel, a boutique hotel with more than 100 rooms and some ground-floor retail, still is planned for that space. “We continue to make significant progress but, due to complications arising out of COVID-19, do not expect to begin construction as soon as demolition is complete,” according to a statement on OldNaplesHotel.com. “In the meantime, the 2-plus acres of land will be sodded as green space and fenced for safety. We look forward to making an announcement about the commencement of construction in the near future.”
