Omega High-Rise at Bonita Bay to Feature Common Areas by Troy Beasley

The Ronto Group announced the common areas at its new Omega high-rise tower at Bonita Bay are being designed by Troy Beasley, Design Principal, Beasley & Henley Interior Design.  The 27-floor Omega tower to be built by the award-winning developer will be the final luxury high-rise tower to be built at Bonita Bay.  The clean-lined tower will feature 67 residences, including 63 spacious tower residences and four penthouses, three of which are under contract.  To date, Ronto has processed binding sales contracts worth more than $70 million.  The remaining penthouse is priced at $6.75 million.  Pre-construction pricing for the tower residences starts at $2.150 million.

Beasley’s design concept for the common areas at Omega is focused on creating dramatic, cozy spaces with an appealing, slightly edgy aesthetic that will naturally invite residents and guests to sit down and relax.  The design provides a bit of contrast to the architecture with the introduction of curved elements and ceiling details.  The flooring in the building’s lobby will be a mix of stone and wood to compliment the interesting patterns and stone and wood finishes that will bring classical flair to an otherwise modern look and evoke a pleasing, familiar feeling.

Omega’s entry lobby will include a 24-hour reception desk, package room, and mail room.  The lobby will offer a captivating view of the building’s grand salon that, per Beasley’s plan, will feature a comfortable, living room-like setting with couches, side chairs, a cocktail table, and see-through views of a covered terrace and the outdoor amenity deck.  Doorways on either side of the entry lobby and the grand salon will lead to a 600 square-foot library and card room and to a 750 square-foot billiards and game room.  Both spaces will provide access the covered terrace.

Beasley envisions the library and card room as a richly appointed, dark-toned, moody dual-purpose space with reading tables, gold reading lamps, wood flooring, and beguiling black and white photographs.  Inviting seating areas will encourage relaxed conversation.  The library and card room will also open to a splendid conference room.  The billiards and game room will offer both gaming areas and private conversation spaces with built-in curved banquettes, and floating tables and chairs.  On the west side of the room, tall windows will provide views of the outdoor amenity deck.  A speak-easy type door will lead from the billiards room to a bar that will also serve a magnificent club room.

Gallery hallways with gold-toned backlighting that plays against grey-toned elements will lead to the south and north sides of the Omega tower, each of which will include elevator lobbies and restrooms.  The south side of the building will feature the club room that will measure more than 3,000 square feet.  Tall curved windows will offer long-range views to the south and west.  The club room will showcase dark wood tones, a two-sided linear fireplace, a curved bar, and a full kitchen that can be used by residents and caterers for special events.  A wall treatment above the fireplace will incorporate a rich combination of steel panels and wood finishes.  A grill-screen will separate the medium to dark-toned bar area from the club room’s comfortable seating areas.  A window with floating glass shelving will provide the bar with soft natural light.  As planned, the flooring in the club room will be a combination of stone and inlaid area rugs.  Double doors will open to the outdoor amenity deck.

Omega’s 600 square-foot theater will be situated off the club room and offer plush couches and chaises to enhance the movie experience.  Beasley’s concept will create a youthful, sexy vibe that reflects the architectural style of the building.  The plush seating arrangement that eschews traditional theater seating configurations will convey the more intimate, more connected ambiance that Beasley has infused throughout Omega’s common areas.  For Beasley, the successful execution of his design will prompt residents to look forward to being ensconced in the building’s richly appointed, always comfortable surroundings.

The restrooms adjacent to the club room will also reflect Beasley’s unique and highly compelling vision for Omega.  The men’s and women’s restrooms will both convey a contemporary feeling but will also present various classic elements that are especially evident in the mirror designs.  Each restroom will have a distinctive feeling.  The men’s restroom will feature grey and white walls and smaller mosaic tile flooring.  A design concept photo of the ladies’ room includes a red wall and white mosaic tile flooring with black grout lines.

Three guest suites are located on the north side of the building to accommodate out-of-town visitors.  In addition to the guest suites that can be reserved by residents, five cottages on garage level two and six poolside cabanas are available for purchase.  A 2,100 square-foot fitness center is also located on the north side of the building.  Like the club room, tall curved windows in the fitness room will offer stunning long-range views, this time to the north and west.  The fitness center will include the latest fitness equipment technology, a massage room, and separate men’s and women’s saunas and locker rooms.

Omega’s 01 and 03 tower 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.   In addition to the terrace areas, tower residents will enjoy a roof-top amenity deck.

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 walk-in closet, and a bath with separate vanities and separate water closets.

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 also 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.

Luxurious Penthouse Available at Omega, The Final High-Rise at Bonita Bay

Luxury Penthouses Available at Omega Bonita Bay

The Ronto Group announced that one luxurious penthouse residence is now available for purchase at Omega, a new 27-floor high-rise tower to be built by the award-winning developer 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 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 more than $70 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 innovative 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 now 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 also 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 massive 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 light-filled residence will feature open living spaces with walls comprised of tall windows offering 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 expansive open living spaces and sheer size of the Omega penthouses is unlike any high-rise residence previously built in the Southwest Florida market.  Prior to finalizing Omega’s design, 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.

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.

Omega residents will enjoy 18,000 square feet of indoor amenities.   A clubroom will measure more than 3,000 square feet and feature tall windows overlooking the tower’s exterior amenity deck.  A 2,100 square-foot fitness center will also feature tall curved windows offering stunning long-range views.  Contemporary glass railings will line the amenity deck’s curved perimeter and overlook one of Bonita Bay’s three on-property golf courses.  A pool with a beach entry and two sun shelves will serve as the centerpiece of the amenity deck.  Poolside day beds, referred to as “pool cocoons,” will be placed around the pool.  Six private poolside cabanas are available for purchase and will include full bathrooms and a beverage center with a sink and refrigerator.  Day cabanas will be available on a first come, first served basis.  A pool pavilion with a bar, seating areas, and men’s and women’s restrooms will offer a welcoming gathering place.  Bar-b-que grills will be situated adjacent to the pavilion.  A second pavilion is being designed as a food area with a complete array of cooking appliances.  Generous seating areas will be available, including sunset viewing areas, and a fire pit terrace with seating.

Omega’s 4,200 square foot rooftop terrace common area will include two hot tubs positioned next to the terraces’ glass railing, allowing residents to relax in the tubs while enjoying long-range water and sunset views.  Two firepit seating areas behind the tubs, along with a larger fire table seating area complete with lounges, club chairs and sofas, will provide abundant seating to ensure all residents can fully enjoy the captivating ambiance. Men’s and ladies’ restrooms, a large kitchen area for catering, and a separate bar area will complete the spectacular setting.
