NAPLES, FL – November 9, 2017 – Arthrex announced details of its planned expansion for its North Naples global headquarters on Thursday in an event with Florida Governor Rick Scott and other state and local elected officials.
Construction is scheduled to begin next month with completion by the end of 2019.
“As Arthrex continues to experience unprecedented growth around the world, we remain committed to expanding in Southwest Florida,” said President and Founder Reinhold Schmieding. “This project was designed to accommodate our growth into the next decade, while maintaining the beautiful aesthetic of the Naples community.”
The project will demolish the Arthrex Manufacturing Inc. North building, located at 1250 Creekside Way, just east of the post office. Two grey office buildings located along Goodlette Road will also be demolished for the project.
Arthrex will construct three facilities for the project. The Arthrex Event and Administration Building will be a six-story, 300,000-square-foot modern office building with meeting space and will include a 15,000-square-foot cafeteria, a six-story parking garage with space for 1,400 vehicles and an outdoor terrace area overlooking a one-acre lake.
The INNovation Hotel, which will be located on the corner of Goodlette Road and Creekside Boulevard, will accommodate Arthrex guests and business travelers. The four-story, 170,000-square-foot full-service hotel will have approximately 160 rooms.
The third building, the Arthrex Wellness and Medical Center, will be located on the current site of the two office buildings along Goodlette Road. The two-story, 38,000-square-foot building will have a fitness center for employees with state-of-the-art equipment and group classes such as spinning and yoga. The building will also have a juice bar and lounge, a retail shop with Arthrex apparel and merchandise, and will be home to the Arthrex Medical Center, which provides free medical care to Arthrex employees and their families.
The campus expansion also includes a road project that will close the mid-section of Creekside Boulevard to create a university-style campus with abundant green space, interconnected walking and bicycle paths, and a three-acre outdoor park area with a 1,000-square-foot pavilion for outdoor events and other activities.
Arthrex Boulevard, which is the street that runs between the post office and the Naples Daily News, will become the main entrance to Arthrex’s global headquarters and will undergo a renovation to expand the two-way street to include a median.
The expansion project is expected to create 560 jobs by 2021 and approximately 1,200 construction-related jobs through 2019.
