About Sea Chase Naples

The Beginning…

In the early fall of 1990 a new condominium was conceived and slated for construction; ground was to be broken in 1991 and the building completed in October 1992 (1). This new structure on Vanderbilt Beach was to be named Palais Sur La Mer (Palace on the Sea). It was to rise above the Gulf of Mexico and boast 31 luxury units in nine stories. Palais Sur La Mer was, also, to have a “club house, tennis court, optional boat docks, two car garages and designated under-building parking” (2). The boat dockage was to be bayside along with cabanas and a tennis court.

Along the way circumstances changed. The builder failed; the project was assumed by the holder of the note and land owner. The project’s scope and name changed, the year was 1993. Finally completed and receiving a certificate of occupancy in January of 1995 Sea Chase had arrived. The original concept may have been altered but Sea Chase remains arguably to be one of the most dynamic in design and aesthetically pleasing edifices on Vanderbilt Beach. Sea Chase still boasts 31 luxury units along with private, direct beach access, the views are unparalleled and the sunsets unforgettable.
