With binding and pending sales contracts worth more than $90 million already processed and construction now underway, the future residents of the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high rise tower being built by The Ronto Group within Bonita Bay are looking forward to enjoying the community’s award-winning lifestyle. With various membership opportunities, the future residents of Seaglass will have a diverse array of on-property dining and lounge choices.
As part of its Vision 2013 initiative, the Bonita Bay Club redesigned the kitchen and traditional dining areas in the clubhouse. The redesign incorporated a 40-feet long buffet station in the dining space. Solid surface cooling tops, a cooking area, and sub-surface mounted heating elements are included in the design. The shape of the buffet station enhances the appeal of the dining room and contributes to a more efficient diner flow.
The Club transformed the former golf pro shop into what is now the 55th Hole, an approximately 3,500 square feet high-end casual bar experience. The design capitalizes on both the interior space and the surrounding areas to create an indoor/outdoor venue. Nano doors open to covered and open outdoor spaces and a patio with the largest fire pit in Florida. Inside, the design affords views of a minimum of three televisions from every seat. Eight 60-inch television screens area incorporated into a ceiling-mounted structure suspended over a square bar. A 127-inch media wall with 18 LED panels can function as one screen or as four. The 55th Hole is a favored place for socializing. Ninety-seven percent of the members visited the venue last year.
The Bonita Bay Club completed a three-story, 60,000 square feet Lifestyle Center last year. The Lifestyle Center is located in the Promenade complex adjacent to Bonita Bay. The completion of the Lifestyle Center contributed to Bonita Bay being recognized as one of the ten healthiest clubs in America by Prevo Health Solutions. Situated adjacent to the 20,000 square feet fitness center on the second floor, the WAVE Café serves healthy fast food, fresh organic juices, and smoothies. The WAVE acronym serves as the brand for the Bonita Bay Club’s healthy initiatives and stands for “Wellness and Vitality Enhancement.” Menu selections include salads, bowls, pressed sandwiches and wraps, soups, and protein selections such as salmon, steamed chicken, grilled lean beef, and protein alternatives for vegetarians. An assortment of freshly made toppings is available. Hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with food service available at 10:30 a.m.
Backwater Jack’s, a waterfront restaurant and bar at the full-service Bonita Bay Marina, is a favored gathering place for boating enthusiasts. The dining and lounge experience is overseen by Matt McNeff, formerly managing partner at Bonefish Grill in Bonita Springs. An all-new menu offering flavorful twists on Backwater Jack’s casual dining selections was introduced for season. Dinner is served Tuesday through Sunday evenings and lunch service will extend through season. A 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. happy hour includes drink discounts and a bar food menu. All selections are available for take-out. Live music by an assortment of artists is featured Friday and Saturday nights during season. Special events and themed parties are open to Bonita Bay residents and their guests. Backwater Jack’s is also available for events by special interest clubs, community parties, and private dinners.
Bonita Bay’s Naples Club facility on Immokalee Road is home to two of the community’s five golf courses. The Club offers a pure golf experience on over 1,000 acres with preserved wetlands and no residential development. A Club Room within the clubhouse offers additional dining options and serves as the Naples Club’s primary dining venue.
Another dining venue will be introduced this year. A 10,000 square feet building that formerly housed the community’s fitness center and spa will be transformed into a tennis clubhouse with casual dining and an indoor/outdoor bar. The space will include a tennis pro shop, locker rooms, a stretching room, multi-function rooms, and a relaxing lobby area. Nano doors will open the entire space to the outdoors and the new exhibition court. Café style seating will be available outside.
Situated nearly 250 feet from its closest neighboring building, Seaglass will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with designer-selected premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Seaglass will showcase the open living environments that luxury homebuyers prefer and offer a level of livability rarely found in high-rise environments. The elegant residences will be accessed by private elevator foyers and feature spacious great rooms, large centrally located kitchens, and two or three expansive outdoor terraces per residence, one of which will include a grill. The terraces and extensive use of glass throughout the residences will provide stunning views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, Bonita Bay’s golf courses, and mangrove preserves.
The Seaglass tower’s second floor will connect to an amenity complex previously designed by architect Santiesteban & Associates. Amenities in place include 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 cabana that includes a bar and grill. Plans for the tower include a rooftop amenity deck available to all residents.
