The award-winning Ronto Group announced that construction of its 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass luxury high-rise tower at Bonita Bay is on schedule for completion this month. Furnishings in the tower’s common areas and on its rooftop amenity deck are being installed and finishes in the building’s glittering lobby, including wall treatments, flooring, and mosaic tile wrapped columns, have been completed. Ronto has processed sales worth more than $155 million at Seaglass and the tower is nearly 70% sold. Three luxurious tower great room floor plans are priced from $1,230,000. The tower residences offer expansive 68-foot or 78-foot views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Seaglass features fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with designer-selected premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence comes with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages are available. Three completed furnished models are available for viewing with a sales associate by appointment only.
Ronto has created a spectacular rooftop amenity deck on the building’s 28th level that will allow Seaglass residents to fully enjoy Southwest Florida’s world renown sunsets, to gather with neighbors for a beverage, and to have barbeques with family members and friends. A two-sided elevator opens to an attractive terrace offering four double-door points of entry to the amenity deck that features one bar with a large screen television, an additional sunset bar with unfettered views of the Gulf, numerous seating areas, two trellised outdoor kitchens with gas grills, an array of planters with native plantings, and glass railings. Furnishings and finishes for the amenity deck were specified by Renee Gaddis, NCIDQ, ASID, GREEN AP, President and Principal Designer at Renee Gaddis Interiors.
Gaddis also designed the Seaglass tower’s captivating common areas. She created a fresh, distinctive design that has multi-generational appeal while providing a warm note of welcome. The color palette includes neutral whites, cerused wood accents, veined tone-on-tone neutral quartzite slabs, and a stunning iridescent glass mosaic feature wall flanked by sea-themed acrylic photographic art pieces. The look combines a mix of design styles. The driftwood-like cerused wood in medium and slightly darker brown and grey tones combines with subtle sea glass accents throughout the space to convey a coastal feeling. Oversized furnishings with classic styles and shapes create a sense of comfort for the building’s residents while providing a timeless feeling that will serve the interior space for years to come. The furnishings are upholstered in neutral fabrics and accented with dark wood details. Classic quartzite slabs accenting the elevator lobby walls and reception desk have been incorporated into the design in a contemporary way. Subtle stainless-steel accents provide additional contemporary elements. The photographic art pieces have an abstract look and are presented in soft aquas, teals, blues, neutrals, and browns reflecting the entirety of the space. The oversized acrylic pieces are hung using stainless steel standoffs against a sea glass mosaic tile background.
The Seaglass tower’s two-story lobby offers a grand place of entry. The lobby’s reception desk is executed in a simple transitional design with the front and the sides wrapped by cerused dark grey-brown wood. The wall behind the desk is clad with clean-veined dark-toned quartzite slabs to create a contemporary panel look with simple recesses rather than traditional applied moldings. In the center panel of the wall, a beautifully backlit circular treatment that incorporates the colors of the design serves as the backdrop for the building’s name presented in gold lettering.
The lobby’s magnificent two-story feature wall extends behind a beautiful floating stairwell with glass panels and a cerused wood railing and accents, all of which is also included on a second-floor catwalk. The stair treads match the flooring and are complemented by dark wood corner risers that support the open design of the staircase. The center of the feature wall is highlighted by stunning sea glass iridescent glass mosaic tile. The LED lighting around the mosaics adds drama while creating the illusion of sea glass on the beach. The glass mosaic, acrylic art pieces, and the cerused wood background treatments on the feature wall are presented within recessed spaces encased by limestone.
The tower’s elevator lobbies have walls clad with the quartzite slab material with horizontal recessed cutouts to provide a contemporary flair. Each elevator door has a large surround finished with the cerused wood used throughout the space. The walls inside each elevator present subtly antiqued mirror insets with a cerused wood frame. A unique ceiling treatment includes stainless steel with randomly sized horizontal cutouts to allow light to penetrate the elevator cab.
The Seaglass tower’s second floor includes a news café and connects 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.
Three open-concept Seaglass tower residence floor plans range from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet. The tower residences will include dual private elevator 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. The open-concept plans provide significant flexibility while offering a sense of volume and livability rarely found in high-rise residences. The space sequences and components found in the kitchens and master baths of the residences reflect the contemporary flair found in the architectural style of the building. To enhance the high-rise living experience even further, the outdoor covered terraces included with each residence are wider and deeper than those found in older high-rise living environments.
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, a full service marina, numerous dining venues, a residents only private beach park, and a network of on-property hiking and biking trails. The community’s amenity-rich lifestyle has captivated future residents of Seaglass and contributed to redefining the luxury high-rise living experience in Southwest Florida.
In addition to Seaglass, Ronto is now accepting purchase agreements for luxurious residences in Omega, the final high-rise to be built at Bonita Bay. Ronto’s Orange Blossom Naples community in North Naples offers a fully-amenitized resort lifestyle and single-family residences by Lennar Corporation and Pulte Homes priced from the $200,000’s. Ronto is developing the TwinEagles gated golf course community in North Naples. Approximately 29 purchase opportunities remain available. Ronto transformed how people live in downtown Naples with the introduction of Naples Square located at 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road. Construction of Phase III is scheduled for completion next spring. Ronto is accepting purchase agreements at Eleven Eleven Central, a new walkable, bikeable community located on Central Avenue between 10th Street and Goodlette Frank Road in downtown Naples.
