The Ronto Group has received immediate luxury homebuyer interest in the tower residences at Omega, a new 26-floor high-rise to be built by Ronto within Bonita Bay. The Omega tower will be the final luxury high-rise tower to be built at Bonita Bay. Designed by architect Robert M. Swedroe, the clean-lined, modern building will feature 63 spacious tower residences and four penthouses. Swedroe’s design offers an approach to high-rise living that has never been available in the Southwest Florida market. Tower residence pre-construction pricing starts at $2.150 million. Ronto is accepting reservations for residences at Omega.
Because the architecture takes advantage of high-rise construction methods and materials that span greater distances and allow the use of more glass, the Omega tower floor plans offer the square footage and width found in estate homes built on 110-foot home sites. The light-filled residences will feature larger, wider, open living spaces with walls comprised of tall windows that will offer incredible views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
The 63 Omega tower residences will be on levels four through 24. Three tower floor plans are available. The living spaces, owners’ suites, and some of the guest bedrooms will open to outdoor terraces with 42-inch high glass railings. Volume ceiling heights of ten feet four-inches, except where dropped, will create a sense of space that cannot be duplicated by remodeling the existing high-rise residences.
The 01 and 03 tower residences will include 4,645 square feet under air, outdoor terrace areas totaling 1,005 square feet, and an 80-square foot private air-conditioned storage space on the same floor as the residence. The 01 and 03 tower plans feature four bedrooms, a den or fifth bedroom, and four-and-a-half baths. Homebuyers have been captivated by the 03-floor plan’s unfettered northern exposure that provides stunning long-range views.
The 02-tower residence floor plan offers 4,210 square feet under air, 540 square feet of outdoor terraces, and 75 square feet of private air-conditioned storage space on the same floor as the residence. The 02-tower plan includes three bedrooms, a den, and three-and-a-half baths. All three tower plans present open-concept living areas with a spacious great room, a double-island kitchen in the 01 and 03 residences with a walk-in pantry, and a dining area. Every tower residence includes a private elevator lobby and a private enclosed two-car garage. Tower residents will also enjoy a roof-top amenity deck.
The expansive open living spaces of the Omega tower residences are unlike any high-rise residence previously built in the Southwest Florida market. Ronto and Swedroe created the building from the inside out based on preferences expressed during focus groups with potential purchasers. The potential purchasers clearly indicated view corridors and spacious, 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. Ronto and Swedroe also found that 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 customer-focused research.
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.
Omega residents will enjoy 18,000 square feet of interior amenities, including a billiards room and bar attached to a social room, a catering kitchen, fitness center, conference room, and three guest suites. Outside, current plans call for a single level amenity deck surrounded by glass railings that will convey a contemporary vibe and include a resort-style pool and spa, a 40-foot by 40-foot pool pavilion with a bar and dining tables, a hot tub, shaded areas, a cabana party area, fire pits with built-in seating, and six cabanas that are available for purchase and include a kitchenette and bathroom. The amenity deck will offer a view of Estero Bay.
Omega residents can take advantage of a variety of membership opportunities and enjoy the amenities available through the Bonita Bay Club that has been designated a Platinum Clubs of America Five-Star Club of Excellence from 2016 through 2018. The Club’s amenities include three on-property and two off-property golf courses, and a 60,000 square feet Lifestyle Center with a 9,000 square-foot spa and salon, a 20,000 square-foot fitness center, and the Wave Café. A new Tennis and Aquatic Center is expected to open early in 2018. The Bonita Bay Marina is just minutes from the Gulf. Located on the Gulf of Mexico, Bonita Bay’s residents-only beach park is 10 to 15 minutes from the community. Residents also enjoy Bonita Bay’s on-property biking and hiking paths and a kayaking and canoeing lodge.
