One luxurious penthouse residence is available for purchase at Omega, a new 27-floor high-rise tower to be built by The Ronto Group within Bonita Bay. Omega will be the final luxury high-rise tower built at Bonita Bay. Designed by architect Robert M. Swedroe, the clean-lined, modern looking tower will feature 67 residences, including 63 spacious tower residences and four penthouses, three of which are under contract. Swedroe’s design presents a fresh, out of market perspective on luxury and offers an approach to high-rise living that has never been available in the Southwest Florida market. To date, Ronto has processed binding sales contracts worth $75 million. The remaining penthouse is priced at $6.75 million. Pre-construction pricing for the tower residences starts at $2.150 million.
Because the building design takes advantage of high-rise construction methods and materials that span greater distances and allow the use of more glass, the Omega floor plans offer the square footage and width found in estate homes built on 110-foot home sites. The penthouse 2602 residence that is available features 6,455 square feet under air and a total of 10,150 square feet of living space, including 1,710 square feet of outdoor terrace areas with an Alfresco gas grill and 42-inch high glass railings, and a private rooftop terrace measuring 1,985 square feet. The residence comes with a private elevator lobby, a private air-conditioned storage space on the same level as the residence, and an oversized private three-car garage.
The penthouse 2602 floor plan includes five bedrooms, a den, and five-and-a-half baths. The open-concept living area features a great room with a fireplace, an island kitchen, a spacious walk-in pantry, a full-sized SubZero wine cooler, and a dining space that opens to splendid terraces that wrap around the corner of the building. Additional terraces are located off the owner’s bedroom and off two of the guest bedrooms. The residence will feature open living spaces with walls comprised of tall windows that will offer incredible views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Volume ceiling heights of eleven feet four-inches, except where dropped, will create a sense of space that cannot be duplicated by remodeling the existing high-rise residences that dot the shoreline between Naples and Fort Myers.
The open living spaces and sheer size of the Omega penthouses is unlike any high-rise residence previously built in Southwest Florida. Ronto and Swedroe created the building from the inside out based on preferences expressed during focus groups with potential purchasers. The potential purchasers indicated view corridors and open floor plans with large, flowing living areas, large owner suites and secondary bedrooms, big outdoor living areas, private garages, and readily accessible storage space were all critical to an enjoyable living experience. Functionality and comfort were more important than form. Rather than wanting to downsize by moving into a condominium residence with less square footage than that to which they had been accustomed in their single-family estate homes, the potential purchasers wanted to simplify their lives by moving into a maintenance-free environment without sacrificing space or livability. Ronto and Swedroe designed the building based on their research.
Like the penthouses, the expansive open living spaces and sheer size of Omega’s tower residences reflect Ronto and Swedroe’s approach. The 01 and 03 residences will include 4,645 square feet of air-conditioned living space, an unobstructed 68-foot wide view, outdoor terrace areas totaling 1,005 square feet, and an 80-square foot or 75-square foot private air-conditioned storage space on the same floor as the residence. The plans feature a massive great room, elegant dining area, comfortable family room, and a double-island kitchen. The great room and owner’s bedroom open to a huge west and northwest facing terrace with multiple conversation areas, a dining area, and an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill. The double-island kitchen offers an additional gathering place when entertaining. The plan also includes a den, four-and-a-half baths, and three large guest bedrooms. The den and all three guest bedrooms open to another large terrace that offers sunrise views.
The 02-tower plan offers 4,210-square feet under air, an unobstructed 78-foot wide view, 540 square feet of outdoor terrace space, and 75 square feet of private air-conditioned storage space. The plan features a massive great room, an elegant dining area, a comfortable family room, and an island kitchen that combine to create the spacious, open living area preferred by potential purchasers. The great room fully opens to a terrace with conversation and dining areas and an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill. The plan also includes a den, three-and-a-half baths, and three large bedrooms, all three of which provide views of Estero Bay and the Gulf. The owner’s suite features a huge walk-in closet, and a bath with separate vanities and separate water closets.
Standard finishes in the fully completed Omega residences will reflect Ronto’s attention to creating a luxurious yet exceedingly livable environment. Flooring in the living areas will be wood, stone, or porcelain tile. The island kitchens will be outfitted with designer selected cabinetry, a multitude of quartz or granite countertop selections, a 36-inch SubZero refrigerator and 18-inch freezer, Wolf gas ranges and ovens, a Miele dishwasher, and Dornbracht plumbing fixtures. The bathrooms will also feature designer selected cabinetry and quartz or granite countertops, Dornbracht plumbing fixtures, and Toto toilets.
