Designed by Miami architect Robert M. Swedroe, the Ronto Group’s 26-floor Omega tower will be the final luxury high-rise to be built within the Bonita Bay community. The building’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. The clean-lined, modern looking tower will feature 67 residences, including 63 spacious tower residences and four spectacular penthouses. Ronto is now accepting reservations. Pre-construction pricing starts in the mid-$2-millions.
Ronto and Swedroe focused on creating the building from the inside out based on preferences expressed by 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. Rather than wanting to downsize by moving into a condominium with less square footage than that to which they had been accustomed in their 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 Omega’s residences accordingly. Their design takes advantage of innovative high-rise construction methods and materials that span greater distances and allow the use of more glass. Rather than designing a four unit per floor building, they created a three unit per floor approach that allowed the residences to be wider and more spacious than typical high-rises. As a result, the Omega tower and penthouse residences 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 living spaces, owners’ suites, and some of the guest bedrooms will open to outdoor terraces that will feature 42-inch high glass railings. Volume ceiling heights of ten feet four-inches, or eleven feet four-inches in the penthouses, except where dropped, will create a sense of space that cannot be duplicated by remodeling the existing high-rise residences between Naples and Fort Myers.
As a result of Ronto’s customer-focused research, Omega will feature three tower residences per floor and two penthouse residences per floor on the building’s two uppermost floors. The 01 and 03 tower residences will include 4,645 square feet of air-conditioned living space, 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 floor plans feature four bedrooms, a den or fifth bedroom, and four-and-a-half baths. The 02-tower residence plan offers 4,205 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 floor plan includes three bedrooms, a den, and three-and-a-half baths. All of the tower plans present huge open-concept living areas with a spacious great room, a double-island kitchen in the 01 and 03 residences with a large walk-in pantry, and a dining area. Every tower residence comes with a private elevator lobby and a private enclosed two-car garage. In addition to the terraces off the residences, tower residents will enjoy a roof-top amenity deck.
The four penthouses will be on levels 25 and 26 and measure 6,435 or 6,375 square feet under air plus 1,710 square feet of outdoor terrace areas with gas grills. Each penthouse comes with its own private elevator lobby, a private air-conditioned storage space on the same level as the residence, a private three-car garage, and a private roof-top amenity deck. Each of the penthouse floor plans includes five bedrooms, a den, and five-and-a-half baths. Massive open-concept living areas include a great room with a fireplace, a double-island kitchen in the 01 and 03 residences with a spacious walk-in pantry, and dining spaces that open 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.
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, a spacious fitness center, a conference room, and three guest suites. Outside, current plans call for a single level amenity deck surrounded by glass railings that will include a resort-style pool and spa, a living room-like 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.
