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 continues to progress on schedule for top-off in October. The luxurious tower is expected to be completed and ready for occupancy by next summer. Ronto also expects to have fully-furnished designer decorated models open by fourth quarter of this year. Sales contracts worth nearly $135 million have been processed. The building is now more than 60% sold and purchase opportunities are becoming limited on several floors. Just one residence remains available on floors eight, ten, and 19 and two residences are available for purchase on floors seven, nine, 11, 15, 20, 21, and 22.
Seaglass contractors BCBE Construction, LLC and Stiles Construction reported the first pour of concrete on the building’s 25th level was completed last week. Kitchen cabinetry, an elaborate ceiling detail, and laundry room appliances have been installed in the 306 residence that will be featured as one of three furnished models and preparations are being made to install the unit’s wood flooring. Installation of kitchen appliances, countertops and tile in the level three and four residences is underway and the primer paint coat has been applied to the covered terraces. Crown molding has been installed on levels eight and nine. Primer coat painting has started on level 10. Work is also progressing on the upper floors. The ceilings have been framed on level 15 and ceiling framing continues to progress on level 16. Windows are being installed on levels 17 and 18. Wall framing is nearly completed on levels 16 and 17 and has started on level 18. Masonry work is progressing on level 19 and has been started on level 20.
Seaglass is situated just 600 feet from Estero Bay, making it one of the closest to the water’s edge of the high-rises 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. 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 building’s architectural style. Each residence comes with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages are available.
The interiors of the Seaglass models expected to open by fourth quarter of this year will include finishes on display at the Seaglass Design Studio. Ronto selected Robb & Stucky’s Susan J. Bleda ASID and Rachelle Porco to create the interior for the Seaglass 804 tower residence model, Renee Gaddis, NCIDQ, ASID, GREEN AP, President and Principal Designer of Renee Gaddis Interiors for tower residence 306, and Cinnabar Design’s Diana Hall, ASID and Laurie Walter, ASID for the tower residence 605 model.
With construction progressing at a rapid pace, future residents are encouraged to visit the Design Studio located in the Seaglass Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive within Bonita Bay. Ronto’s 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 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 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.

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.

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.
