As evidenced by the nearly $109 million in sales contracts already processed, luxury homebuyers continue to be attracted to the unique value afforded by The Ronto Group’s 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower now under construction within the award-winning Bonita Bay community. Seaglass is situated just 600 feet from Estero Bay, making it one of the closest to the water’s edge of the high-rises currently under construction on Southwest Florida’s Gulf coast. All new open-concept floor plans with tall ceilings take full advantage of spectacular mangrove, water, and sunset views. At the same time, Ronto has eschewed the traditional high-rise builder practice of providing decorator ready residences that require additional time and investment prior to completion. On schedule for completion in summer, 2018 and constructed at price relatively the same as older resale residences, Seaglass offers brand new, fully-completed, and ready-for-occupancy residences with designer-selected premium finishes. The space sequences and components found in the kitchens and master baths of the residences will reflect the contemporary flair found in the architectural style of the building. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available.
In addition to the building’s close proximity to Estero Bay, Ronto commissioned the building’s architect, Santiesteban & Associates, to conduct a sun study to ensure that residents of Seaglass will enjoy excellent sunrise and sunset views throughout the year. After researching and studying the positioning of the sun throughout different times of the year, Santiesteban compiled charts indicating the sunrise and sunset exposures of the Seaglass residences. Based on the charting of the exposures, sunrises and sunsets will be visible to residences throughout the building all year. This attention to the sunrise and sunset view corridors will enhance the high rise living experience for Seaglass residents and ensure that views of the coveted Southwest Florida sunsets can be enjoyed on a daily basis.
With the building’s penthouse residences sold out, Ronto is making a unique opportunity available to purchasers of residences on the 20th through 23rd floors at Seaglass that will allow them to maximize their high-rise living experience. In addition to selecting finishes for their new home’s flooring, cabinetry, countertops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors through its innovative Finishing Touches Program, Ronto is offering homebuyers an opportunity to join two upper units together to create a luxurious 6,200 square foot residence with scintillating views of the Gulf of Mexico. Each of the expanded residences will come with four protected access under-building parking spaces.
A choice selection of tower residences remains available at Seaglass. Three luxurious Seaglass tower residence great room floor plans ranging from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet under air are priced from just over $1 million. The spacious tower residences will include dual private elevator grand foyers, 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, walk-in closets in the owner’s suite, and sliders opening to multiple outdoor spaces that include a gas grill. Ten-foot ceiling heights are included per plan. Three furnished tower residence models featuring the finishes on display at the Seaglass Design Studio will be available for viewing upon completion of construction.
Seaglass offers a level of standard finishes and design flexibility rarely found in Southwest Florida’s high-rises. Future residents may select their finishes through the Finishing Touches Program, or source their finishes through third-party suppliers. The designer-selected finishes on display at the Seaglass Design Studio and Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive within Bonita Bay are ideally suited to the amenity rich lifestyle featured at Seaglass. With construction well underway, opportunities to make finish selections will become progressively limited.
Residents at Seaglass will enjoy an amenity rich lifestyle. The Seaglass tower’s second floor will include a news café and connect to an award-winning amenity complex. An array of amenities already in place includes 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 and screened cabana that includes a bar and grill.
With various membership opportunities, the world-class amenities of the Bonita Bay Club will also be available to residents of Seaglass. Recognized as one of the ten healthiest clubs in America by Prevo Health Solutions, Bonita Bay’s amenities range from a completed 60,000 square feet Lifestyle Center, to five championship golf courses, expanded tennis facilities that will be transformed even further in 2017, a full-service marina, numerous dining venues, a residents only private beach park, an on-property network of hiking and biking trails, and a new aquatic center scheduled to begin construction in 2017.
