Construction at The Ronto Group’s 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass luxury high-rise tower within Bonita Bay continues to progress at a rapid pace and remains on schedule for completion in 16 months. Concrete for the building’s ninth floor has been poured and a new floor is being poured every two weeks. Hard hat tours are now available. At the base of the tower, construction of the protected access parking areas continues to progress. At the same time, sales activity is escalating. The building is more than 50% sold. All of the penthouse residences have been sold and just one opportunity to join two upper units together to create a 6,200 square foot residence with scintillating water views remains available. The expanded residence will come with four protected access under-building parking spaces.
The Seaglass tower will present captivating common areas designed by Renee Gaddis, NCIDQ, ASID, GREEN AP, President and Principal Designer at Renee Gaddis Interiors. Her color palette will include neutral whites, cerused wood accents, veined tone-on-tone neutral quartzite slabs, and an iridescent glass mosaic feature wall flanked by sea-themed acrylic photographic art. The driftwood-like cerused wood in medium and slightly darker brown and grey tones will combine with sea glass accents to convey a coastal feeling. Oversized furnishings will create a sense of comfort while providing a timeless feeling. Classic quartzite slabs accenting the elevator lobby walls and reception desk will be incorporated into the design. The abstract photographic art will be presented in soft aquas, teals, blues, neutrals, and browns. The oversized acrylic pieces will be hung using stainless steel standoffs against a cerused wood background that will have a paneled look with recessed horizontal spaces.
The tower’s two-story lobby will offer a grand place of entry. The lobby’s reception desk will be executed in a transitional design with the front and sides wrapped by cerused dark grey-brown wood. The wall behind the desk will be clad with tone-on-tone neutral quartzite slabs to create a contemporary panel look with simple recesses. In the center panel, a backlit circular logo treatment will serve as the backdrop for the building’s name presented in black lettering with a white outline.
The lobby’s two-story feature wall will extend behind a floating stairwell with glass panels, a stainless steel railing and cerused wood accents, all of which will also be included on a second floor catwalk. The stair treads will 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 will present the iridescent glass mosaic tile. The LED lighting around the mosaics will add 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 will be presented within recessed spaces encased by limestone.
The tower’s elevator lobbies will have walls clad with the quartzite slab material with horizontal recessed cutouts. Each elevator door will have a large surround finished with cerused wood. The walls inside each elevator will present antiqued mirror insets with a cerused wood frame. The ceiling treatment will include stainless steel with randomly sized horizontal cutouts.
The Seaglass tower’s second floor will include a news café and connect to a previously completed award-winning amenity complex. An array of amenities already in place includes a theater, guest suites, card and club rooms, a fitness facility that features men’s and women’s spas with steam and massage rooms, a resort-style walk-in pool and spa, and a deck with a covered and screened cabana with a bar and grill.
A selection of Seaglass tower residences ranging from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet and priced from just over $1 million remains available. 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.
The open-concept plans offer 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 of the building. The outdoor covered terraces included with each residence are wider and deeper than those found in older high-rise living environments. Each residence comes with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available.
