La Mer Association

Welcome to La Mer!

Majestically situated between the white sand of the Gulf of Mexico and Venetian Bay in Park Shore, La Mer is home to 104 residents who enjoy majestic views, the beach just steps away and a delightful shopping and dining experience at the Village of Venetian Bay. Amenities include private beachfront access, newly renovated and Award Winning, pool, spa, outdoor pavilion, lobby and front entry, as well as tennis courts, newly updated fitness center, a rooftop observation and sunning deck, 24-hour security and social room with kitchen and bar.


Developed by Raymond and Scott Lutgert, La Mer was built in 1978 and was the first high-rise building in Naples built around a central atrium featuring hanging gardens -- the most striking feature in this 16 story, 104-unit tower.  The developers' success in past projects can be attributed to their belief that luxury apartments should offer the extravagance of space-not just in area, but in volume.  Some of the La Mer units offer luxuries such as fireplaces, built-in barbeque grills on terraces overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, extra-large floor plans, and 13-foot ceilings.  Some of the features of the exterior of the building are unique in residential apartment living.  The oversized,  wrap-around balconies of irregular configuration are screened and designed with roll-down shutters to encourage their use as everyday living spaces.


Upon entering the building, an elegant reflection pond graces the lobby.  Part of many of the inherently strong architectural elements, the atrium soars from the ground level to the roof.  Undulating, angled galleries, from which stem the residences, repeat themselves from the ground level to the 17th level rooftop area.  Topping the enormous atrium are large glass panels supported by a polymer-coated metallic chrome-finished frame spanning 60-feet in one direction and 92-feet in the other direction.


The residents, ages ranging from the forties all the way up to our grand centenarian, are outgoing,  friendly and eagerly share the positive living aspects they share and enjoy with fellow residents at the La Mer.
