Meet the Sales Team!

With its glittering new Sales Center set to open next month, The Ronto Group has assembled a group of experienced real estate sales professionals to serve homebuyers at the highly anticipated Seaglass at Bonita Bay luxury high-rise tower. 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 Seaglass tower will showcase the open living environments that today’s luxury homebuyers prefer and offer a level of livability rarely found in high-rise environments. The elegant residences will be accessed by private elevator foyers and feature spacious great rooms, large centrally located kitchens, and two or three expansive 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 stunning views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, Bonita Bay’s heralded golf courses, and lush 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 stylish tower residences will range from approximately 2,900 to 3,400 square feet under air. The tower 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. Utilizing 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 spectacular penthouse residences on the building’s upper floors.

The luxurious penthouse residences will offer approximately 4,600 square feet of air conditioned space with a large great room, spacious 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 especially inviting outdoor spaces with exceptionally large terraces, including two private rooftop terraces that will be enjoyed by the residents of the penthouse on the building’s top floor.

In addition to the attractions available at the amenity complex, the world-class 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 under way to renovate and expand the fitness center.

The Bonita Bay community features an onsite 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 just minutes away on Little Hickory Island.
