The award-winning Ronto Group announced that construction of the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower being built by Ronto within Bonita Bay is expected to top-off in October. Concrete for the 20th level has been poured and a new floor is being poured every two weeks. The building remains on schedule for completion just 11 months from now. Ronto also expects to have fully-furnished designer decorated models open by fourth quarter of this year. Sales contracts worth more than $130 million have been processed. The building is now more than 60% sold.
Seaglass contractors BCBE Construction, LLC and Stiles Construction reported that installation of block work for the private garages on level one of the Seaglass tower is continuing. Underground utilities are being installed prior to pouring the slab on grade. Tiling on level three is underway and installation of electrical trim on level three is ongoing. Tile is also being installed on level four. Sheetrock has been installed on level five and painters have completed the primer coat. Skim coating of the sheetrock on level six has been completed and painting of the primer coat is underway. Sanding of the skim coats on level seven is being completed. Dry wall is being hung on level 9. Site work and framing of the walls on level 14 is ongoing.
With construction progressing at a rapid pace, future residents are encouraged to visit the Seaglass Design Studio located in the Seaglass Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive within Bonita Bay. Ronto’s innovative Finishing Touches Program allows future residents to select finishes for their new 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. Future residents are invited to meet with the Finishing Touches Coordinator at the Design Studio and to include the Seaglass building architect and their own interior designer in the Finishing Touches Program selection process. To ensure each residence is finished to each owner’s specific tastes, future residents may also specify finishes from other sources. The level of customization and flexibility available through Ronto’s Finishing Touches Program is extremely rare and seldom offered by high-rise developers in Southwest Florida. The Seaglass Design Studio and Sales Center are open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m. Selection opportunities are becoming increasingly limited as construction progresses.
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 full advantage of spectacular mangrove, water, and sunset views. At the same time, 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. The space sequences and components found in the kitchens and master baths of the residences will reflect the contemporary flair found in the architectural style of the building. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available.
All available penthouse residences within the Seaglass building are sold out. A choice selection of tower residences is available. 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 spacious tower residences will include dual private elevator grand foyers, 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, 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.
An increasingly limited selection of the coveted 01 and 06 end unit tower residences remains available, including south and north facing residences. The spacious, thoughtfully designed 01 and 06 tower residence floor plans offer 3,421 square feet under air and 525 square feet of outdoor 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.
As evidenced by the exceptional sales volume processed to date, luxury homebuyers continue to be attracted to the unique value afforded by the Seaglass tower. 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 full golf and sports membership opportunities available, 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. The prestigious America’s Healthiest Clubs award presented by Prevo Health Solutions is conveyed only to private clubs focused on the cultivation of a healthy environment and lifestyle for its members and staff. The new Lifestyle Center contributed to the Bonita Bay Club being named recipient of the award. The three-story Lifestyle Center includes a nearly 20,000 square feet world-class Fitness Center, a 9,000 square feet spa and salon, and the WAVE Café that serves healthy fast food, freshly made organic juices, and smoothies that can be enjoyed on-site or prepared to go.
In addition to the Seaglass tower, The Ronto Group is developing Naples Square in downtown Naples, the TwinEagles gated golf course community, and Orange Blossom.
