The award-winning Ronto Group’s Seaglass at Bonita Bay luxury high-rise tower achieved notable milestones in 2016. The award-winning developer broke ground on the highly anticipated 26-floor, 120-unit tower within the Bonita Bay community on April 4th. Completion is expected just 17 months from now. At the same time, luxury homebuyers continued to be captivated by the prospect of living in a newly constructed, beautifully designed and spacious residence and by the amenity rich, award-winning Bonita Bay lifestyle. With purchase agreements worth more than $115 million already processed, Seaglass is now more than 50% sold.
While Seaglass will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with designer-selected premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim, Ronto is offering homebuyers an unprecedented opportunity to customize their residences. In addition to selecting finishes for their new home’s flooring, cabinetry, countertops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors through Ronto’s innovative Finishing Touches Program that is available to all purchasers, buyers of residences on the 20th through 23rd floors of the high-rise tower have the choice of joining two upper floor 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.
Future residents of Seaglass appreciate the Finishing Touches Program. A fully outfitted kitchen featuring the finishes and Thermador appliances available at the luxurious high-rise tower is included at the Seaglass Design Studio and Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive within Bonita Bay, as well as stone, porcelain, and wood flooring and carpet selections; granite, marble, and quartz countertops; decorative backsplash choices; trim, doors, faucets, and plumbing fixtures; and a gas grill, a feature that is unique to Seaglass among high-rise offerings. The finishes on display are suited to the open concept living spaces at Seaglass and will be included in the three designer decorate furnished models that will be available for viewing upon completion of construction. With construction progressing at a rapid pace, prospective homebuyers are encouraged to make their buying decisions and finish selections promptly to take full advantage of the Finishing Touches Program.
In addition to the Finishing Touches Program, and to ensure each residence is finished to each owner’s specific tastes, future residents may also specify finishes from other sources. Moreover, as numerous purchasers discovered in 2016, the opportunity to engage an architect to make non-structural floor plan modifications is available and will become progressively limited as construction continues to progress.
A choice selection of tower residences is 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.

Future residents of Seaglass have found the Bonita Bay lifestyle as captivating as the residences. Designated a Distinguished Emerald Club by Boardroom Magazine since 2013, the Bonita Bay Club’s three-story, approximately 60,000 square feet Lifestyle Center that includes a nearly 20,000 square feet Fitness Center and fitness café and a 9,000 square feet spa and salon has set a new standard for country club communities in Southwest Florida. The Lifestyle Center is in the Promenade complex adjacent to Bonita Bay and overlooks the first hole of the Creekside golf course, one of Bonita Bay’s three on-property golf courses. The Lifestyle Center contributed to Bonita Bay being recognized as one of the ten healthiest clubs in America by Prevo Health Solutions. The prestigious America’s Healthiest Clubs award is conveyed to private clubs focused on the cultivation of a healthy environment and lifestyle for its members and staff.
The Club has announced plans for enhancements to its 18-court tennis facility and the construction of a resort-style pool complex. A re-arrangement and slight expansion of the 18-court tennis complex included the addition of a large exhibition court and two oversized courts. In 2017, the 10,000 square feet building that formerly housed the community’s fitness center and spa will be transformed into a tennis clubhouse with casual dining and an indoor/outdoor bar. The space will include a tennis pro shop, locker rooms, a stretching room, multi-function rooms, and a relaxing lobby area. Nano doors will open the entire space to the outdoors and the new exhibition court. Café style seating will be available outside. In the summer of 2017, the Club will begin work on a new aquatic center that will be contiguous with the tennis clubhouse. The tennis clubhouse bar area will extend onto the pool deck.
Seaglass residents will enjoy Bonita Bay’s on-property biking and hiking paths. A kayaking and canoeing lodge offers additional recreational possibilities. For those who prefer the beach, bus transportation is provided to a private beach park for Bonita Bay residents only that includes picnic pavilions, grills, beach chairs, and umbrellas just minutes away on Little Hickory Island. Bonita Bay also features an onsite marina offering a relaxing dining and lounge experience. The full-service Bonita Bay Marina is located on the Imperial River at the south end of Estero Bay and provides direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Wet slips and dry boat storage are available, as well as on-site fueling and light mechanical services.
Three Arthur Hills designed courses wind their way through the 2,400 acre Bonita Bay community and gracefully complement the surrounding pristine natural setting. Two additional courses designed by esteemed golf course architect Tom Fazio are located at the nearby Bonita Bay Club Naples. Both of the Fazio courses offer a pure golf experience and are set against a stunning natural tableau with no residential development.
