With sales contracts worth more than $155 million already processed, and construction nearing completion, The Ronto Group’s 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower being built by the award-winning developer within Bonita Bay continues to offer luxury homebuyers a new approach to living an elegant, maintenance-free lifestyle. New open-concept floor plans ranging from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet under air, common areas with a more contemporary, on-trend look and feeling, a comprehensive array of amenities, and various membership opportunities that offer access to the Bonita Bay Club’s award-winning lifestyle have combined to redefine the high-rise living experience. 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. Three completed furnished models are available for viewing with a sales associate by appointment.
“Many people forget it has been ten years since the last new high-rise was built at Bonita Bay,” said Wanda Cross, director of sales for The Ronto Group. “Obviously, construction methods, architectural designs, and interior design styles have evolved considerably over the past decade. When homebuyers visit Seaglass, they are surprised by how different the Seaglass floor plans are from the more familiar floor plans they remember from ten years ago. The all new Seaglass plans live more like a single-family home than a typical condominium unit. The large, open-concept living areas and the level of finish Ronto has included reflect the elegance, comfort, and functionality that today’s homebuyers prefer. The freshness of the floor plans is complimented by common areas that have a more modern, contemporary look. It is as if the building’s design is saying, ‘This is new, this is fresh, this is a place where you will be comfortable and experience a new, more personally fulfilling high-rise living experience.’”
The Seaglass tower 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. The spacious tower residences 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.
Ronto is finishing the building’s remaining tower residences in high-end finish packages and color schemes selected by award-winning interior designer Renee Gaddis, NCIDQ, ASID, GREEN AP, President and Principal Designer of Renee Gaddis Interiors. Gaddis has created three on-trend finish and color palette designs that will appeal to luxury homebuyers. The first design is anchored by a palette that features shades of grey. The wall tones are a soft grey presented against plank style wood-look tile flooring in the living areas and on the terraces. Off-white kitchen counter surfaces with subtle grey speckles contrast the design’s darker grey cabinetry and sleek brushed nickel hardware. The cabinetry and counter surfaces are repeated in the owner’s bath where beautiful off-white tile flooring includes soft grey veining.
Gaddis’ second design features neutral cream tones that compliment a diverse array of furniture selections. Light wall tones bring softness to the look and play against creamy tile flooring in the living areas that include delicate highlights. The den showcases medium-toned wood flooring. In the kitchen, Gaddis has selected light creamy cabinetry with a uniquely shaped inset that is topped with cream-toned counters with randomly shaped speckled accents and contemporary brushed nickel hardware. The owner’s bath features dark-toned cabinetry contrasted by off-white countertops and ultra-soft cream tile flooring and shower walls with faint highlights.
The third finish and palette package includes flat finished Shark colored wall tones with semi-gloss white trim. Flooring in the living areas, including the elevator lobby, foyer, great room, dining room, kitchen, gallery, and powder bath is 24 by 24-inch Bianco Coveland tile. Wood flooring is featured in the den. The kitchen showcases white cabinetry against Cement quartz countertops with an eased edge. The owner’s bedroom features Frost carpeting. The owner’s bath also features 24 by 24-inch Bianco Coveland tile flooring, as well as 12 by 24-inch Bianco Coveland tile shower walls, six by six-inch Bianco Coveland tile shower flooring, cabinetry with a Cape Cod finish, and white Carrara marble countertops with an eased edge and a four-inch backsplash. The bath also includes a soaking tub and polished chrome hardware.
Gaddis has also created a distinctive, more contemporary common area 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 driftwood-like cerused wood in medium and slightly darker brown and grey tones combine 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 has been incorporated into the design in a contemporary way. Subtle stainless-steel accents provide additional contemporary elements.
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 be 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.
