It was commissioned by Captain Joseph Patterson, the founder of the tabloid DAILY NEWS, which long had the largest circuation of any daily newspaper in America.
The building, at 1100 Immokalee Road in North Naples, is just a couple blocks west of the NCH North Naples Hospital campus.
Additionally, human resources, marketing and some other non-clinical support services on its two hospital campuses will also relocate.
This strategic location helps position us for growth.
The Naples and Collier County residents will benefit the most with increased services.
I feel they are the perfect owner of the building and we are hopeful to negotiate lease-back space to stay here with them.
This should create a great community center between NCH, the Naples Daily News, and Arthrex, all strong supporters of our community, operating out of that complex. Levine) A PIX11 news van parked in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York on Wednesday, September 18, 2019.

The sale of the building is a sign of the times, as many newspaper offices have become too big for their operations, due to consolidation, and a shift from newsprint to digital media.
The Daily News moved to the building to accommodate a press that stood four floors in height, with the ability to print as many as 90,000 papers an hour.
While the media company sold the local publications, the headquarters property remained in its hands, owned by an affiliate until its sale this week, according to Collier County land records.
The building was specifically designed to house the Swiss-made printing equipment, conceived during halcyon days of expansion for the Daily News between 2000 and 2006.
The printing presses have since gone silent and have been dismantled and sold off.
Production operations moved to Sarasota early this year after the combination of New Media Investment Group and Gannett, which put the Sarasota Herald-Tribune under the same ownership as the Naples Daily News and The News-Press in Southwest Florida.
The newspaper now operates from leased offices — and a much smaller footprint — off Metro Parkway.
