With construction progressing at a rapid pace, The Ronto Group announced hard hat tours of the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass at Bonita Bay high-rise tower being built within Bonita Bay will be available beginning within two to three weeks. Concrete for the seventh floor of the tower has been poured and construction remains on schedule for completion in 17 months. 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 advantage of mangrove, water, and sunset views. Ronto has eschewed the traditional high-rise builder practice of providing decorator ready residences that require additional time and investment prior to completion. Seaglass offers brand new, fully-completed, and ready-for-occupancy residences with designer-selected premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available.
With purchase agreements worth more than $115 million already processed, Seaglass is more than 50% sold. The penthouse residences within the building are sold out. Ronto is making a limited opportunity available to purchasers of residences on the 20th through 23rd floors. 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 a limited opportunity to join two upper units together to create a 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.
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 tower residences will include dual private elevator grand foyers, 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.
A selection of the coveted 01 and 06 end unit tower residences remains available, including south and north facing residences. The spacious 01 and 06 tower residences offer 3,421 square feet under air and 525 square feet of covered terrace space. The open great room plan includes three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom, three-and-a-half baths, a large island kitchen and dining area, and a private elevator lobby. The remaining 01 residences are on floors three and four. The remaining 06 residences are on floors three through seven and 14 through 16.
Opportunities for future residents to customize their residences and to specify preferred finishes are becoming increasingly limited. The finishes on display at the Seaglass Design Studio and Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive through Ronto’s innovative Finishing Touches Program allow future residents to make selections for their home’s flooring, cabinetry, countertops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors. A fully outfitted kitchen featuring the finishes and Thermadore appliances available at Seaglass is included at the Design Studio, 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. Prospective homebuyers are encouraged to make their buying decisions and finish selections promptly. Future residents may also specify finishes from other sources.
Luxury homebuyers continue to be attracted to the unique value afforded by Seaglass. 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. Based on year-long charting, sunrises and sunsets will be visible to residences throughout the building throughout the 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.
Whether at the building itself, or by simply enjoying recreational possibilities available throughout the Bonita Bay community, residents at Seaglass will enjoy an amenity rich lifestyle. The Seaglass tower’s second floor will include a news café and connect to a spectacular, award-winning amenity complex previously designed by architect Santiesteban & Associates. An expansive 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, Seaglass residents will have access to the amenities available through the Bonita Bay Club. 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, a full service marina, numerous dining venues, a residents only private beach park, and a network of on-property hiking and biking trails.
