Coquina Sands New Home History

Construction in Coquina Sands began in the 1950’s starting with a handful of small one-story single-family homes. Building activity in the area remained heavy from the 50’s through the ’70’s and tapered off substantially in the 80’s when only a few new homes were built every year until 2000. From then on, a wave of tear down and new construction took over once again with several homes being torn down and rebuilt every year til about 2007. A stall attributed to the financial crisis slowed new construction in the Coquina Sands area starting in 2008 until about 2014 when new construction took on a life of its own for the next 3 years. Activity slowed again starting in 2018. The exception to this timeline occurred in 2011 when Naples Casamore, a single-family home community featuring 12 villa style homes located on the intercoastal in Coquina Sands was completed and sold.

New homes in Coquina Sands largely follow the design trends similar in other Naples beachfront neighborhood locations and include Old Florida Style, Traditional, Mediterrenean, Transitional and Modern influences. A special feature about Coquina Sands is the absence of large tract builder influence which enhances the unique ambiance and custom luxuriousness of this beachside community.

From there 9 more beachfront condominium/co-ops were constructed ending with Via Delfino completed in 1989. Many developers have tried to acquire existing beachfront buildings for teardown opportunities without success.
