Ronto’s Seaglass at Bonita Bay sales center to open in October

The Ronto Group will open a new sales center and begin accepting reservations for residences in the Seaglass at Bonita Bay luxury high-rise tower in October.

The 26-floor, 120-unit tower to be built by Ronto within the Bonita Bay community in Bonita Springs, will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy tower and penthouse residences with designer-selected premium quality finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. The Naples-based developer and Wheelock Street Capital acquired the final two high-rise tower parcels at Bonita Bay late last year.

Pricing for the Seaglass at Bonita Bay residences will be announced in October. Homebuyers are invited to register for the interest list and project updates at www.seaglassatbonitabay.com and to connect with The Ronto Group on Facebook and LinkedIn.

The Seaglass tower will showcase the luxurious, open living environments that today’s luxury homebuyers prefer and offer a level of livability rarely found in high-rise environments.

The residences will be accessed by private elevator foyers and feature great rooms, large centrally located kitchens, and two or three outdoor terraces per residence, one of which will include an outdoor kitchen. The terraces, outdoor kitchens, and extensive use of glass throughout the residences will provide views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, Bonita Bay’s golf courses, and mangrove preserves.

Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. The space sequences and components found in the kitchens and master bath areas of the residences will reflect the new type of contemporary flair that renowned architect Santiesteban & Associates has brought to the architectural style of the building.

The residences will range from 2,900 to 3,400 square feet under air. The great room floor plans include large island kitchens, three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, or three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom and three-and-a-half baths. Ten-foot ceiling heights will be included per plan. Using a private elevator core concept, the tower’s architectural design divides the larger building into three sub-buildings with independent cores each supporting two of the overall six residences per floor. Two of the cores merge to accommodate penthouse residences on the building’s upper floors.

The penthouse residences will offer approximately 4,600 square feet of air-conditioned space with a large great room, a gourmet kitchen, three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom and three-and-a-half baths, or four bedrooms plus a den and four-and-a-half baths. Ceiling heights of 10 feet, eight-inches or 11 feet four inches will be included per plan. Several of the penthouse residences will feature outdoor spaces with exceptionally large terraces, including two private rooftop terraces.

The elegance and linear appeal of the tower’s design will be evident to visitors upon arrival. The main entry will feature a porte-cochere with a multilevel roof component. Under the canopy, a three-story trellised colonnade will create a piazza in front of the entry to a two-story grand lobby that will showcase a spiral staircase leading to a second-floor news café.

The second floor will connect to an amenity complex previously designed by Santiesteban. Amenities already in place include a theater, guest suites, card and club rooms, a fully-equipped fitness facility that features men’s and women’s spas with steam and massage rooms, a large resort-style walk-in pool and spa, and a deck with a covered cabana that includes a bar and grill. Preliminary plans for the new tower include a rooftop amenity deck available to all residents of the tower with a venue for entertaining and enjoying Southwest Florida’s Gulf views and sunsets.

In addition to the attractions available at the amenity complex, the amenities of the Bonita Bay Club, including three on-site and two off-site golf courses, will also be available to residents of the new tower. The club recently completed an $11 million renovation of its 50,000-square-foot clubhouse and plans are underway to renovate and expand the fitness center.

The Bonita Bay community features an on-site marina offering a relaxing dining and lounge experience. Twelve miles of on-property hiking trails and a kayaking and canoeing lodge offer additional recreational possibilities. For those who prefer the beach, bus transportation is provided to a private beach club complete with picnic pavilions, grills, beach chairs, and umbrellas on Little Hickory Island.
