The award-winning Ronto Group announced that construction of its 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower within the Bonita Bay community is on schedule for completion just 17 months from now. Constructed at pricing relatively the same as older resale residences, Seaglass offers all new open-concept floor plans with tall ceilings that 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. Now more than 50% sold, Seaglass offers fully-completed, ready-for-occupancy residences with designer-selected premium finishes. 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.
With construction progressing at a rapid pace, opportunities for future residents of Seaglass to customize their residences are becoming progressively limited. Even as construction progresses, Ronto is making a unique and very limited opportunity available to purchasers of residences on the 20th through 23rd floors of the high-rise tower. In addition to selecting finishes for their new home’s flooring, cabinetry, countertops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors through its innovative Finishing Touches Program, homebuyers have the choice of joining two upper floor units together to create a luxurious 6,200 square foot residence with scintillating views of the Gulf of Mexico. Each of the expanded residences will come with four protected access under-building parking spaces.
Seaglass offers a level of standard finishes and design flexibility rarely found in Southwest Florida’s high-rises. Still, as vertical construction continues to progress, future residents of residences throughout the Seaglass building now have limited opportunities to customize their residences and to specify preferred finishes through the Finishing Touches Program. The Program allows future residents to select designer-specified finishes for their new home’s flooring, cabinetry, countertops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors. A fully outfitted kitchen featuring the finishes and Thermador appliances available at the luxurious high-rise tower is included at the Seaglass Design Studio and Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive within Bonita Bay, 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. The finishes on display are suited to the open concept living spaces at Seaglass. To take full advantage of the Finishing Touches Program, prospective homebuyers are encouraged to make their buying decisions and finish selections promptly. To ensure each residence is finished to each owner’s specific tastes, future residents may also specify finishes from other sources.
A choice selection of tower residences remains available at Seaglass. 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. Three furnished tower residence models featuring the finishes on display at the Seaglass Design Studio will be available for viewing upon completion of construction.
A 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. The remaining 01 residences are on floors three and four. The remaining 06 residences are on floors three through seven and 14 through 16.
With its beautifully designed and finished residences and an unprecedented array of world-class amenities available on-site, within the Bonita Bay Club, or available through a variety of membership opportunities in the Bonita Bay Club, Seaglass is redefining the luxury high-rise living experience in Southwest Florida. 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. The Seaglass tower’s second floor will include a news café and connect to a spectacular, award-winning amenity complex previously designed by the building’s 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.
Bonita Bay’s amenity-rich lifestyle has captivated future residents of Seaglass. 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 that will be transformed even further in 2017, a full service marina, numerous dining venues, a residents only private beach park, a network of on-property hiking and biking trails, and a new aquatic center scheduled to begin construction in summer 2017. The prestigious America’s Healthiest Clubs award 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.
The Bonita Bay Club’s golf operation is legendary. A two-story, 15,000 square-foot facility houses the golf pro shop, tournament offices, and merchandise offices, as well as underground storage and charging for 260 carts and storage for 2,600 golf bags. The staff includes 25 PGA Professionals. Ten of the PGA Professionals and seven Fitness Professionals are Titleist Performance Institute Certified, creating one of the largest programs in the country. An instructional program includes private and group lessons, golf schools, and clinics on three dedicated practice areas. Three on-property Bonita Bay West courses were designed by Arthur Hills to preserve and enhance the natural features of the land. The three courses achieved Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary status in 1995. Two Tom Fazio designed courses at the nearby Bonita Bay Club Naples provide a pure golf experience on over 1,000 acres that includes preserved wetlands but no residential development. It was the first private 36-hole club in the world to achieve certification through the Audubon International’s Signature Program and has been designated as a Certified Signature Sanctuary since 1998.
