With reservations worth more than $70 million already processed, 27-story Omega high-rise tower to be built by The Ronto Group within Bonita Bay has captivated luxury homebuyers. The Omega tower will be the final high-rise to be built at Bonita Bay and will feature 63 spacious tower residences and four penthouses. Designed by Robert M. Swedroe, Omega’s architectural style presents a modern perspective on luxury. Because the design takes advantage of innovative 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 residences will feature larger, wider, open living spaces with walls comprised of tall windows offering views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Tower residence pre-construction pricing starts at $2.150 million. Penthouse pre-construction pricing starts at $6.5 million.
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. Except where dropped, ten-foot four-inch volume ceilings will create a sense of space. All three of the tower plans present huge open-concept living areas with a spacious great room, an island kitchen with a large walk-in pantry, and a dining area. Every tower residence comes with a private elevator lobby, a private air-conditioned storage space on the same floor as the residence, and a private enclosed two-car garage. Tower residents will also enjoy a roof-top amenity deck.
The expansive living spaces and sheer size of the Omega tower residences is unlike any high-rise residence previously built in Southwest Florida. Ronto and Swedroe created the building based on preferences expressed by potential purchasers who indicated view corridors and spacious, open floor plans with large living areas, large owner suites and secondary bedrooms, big outdoor living areas, private garages, and readily accessible storage space were all critical the 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 in their single-family estate homes, the potential purchasers wanted to simplify their lives in a maintenance-free environment without sacrificing space or livability. 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-rise condominiums. As a result, the Omega tower plans offer the square footage and width found in estate homes on 110-foot home sites.
The 02-tower residence floor plan epitomizes Ronto and Swedroe’s approach. The exceptionally livable plan offers an astounding 4,210-square feet under air, 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 luxurious living environments. Flooring in the living areas will be wood, stone, or porcelain tile. The island kitchens will feature designer selected cabinetry, 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 clubroom, 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 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.
Omega residents can also take advantage of a variety of membership opportunities available through the Bonita Bay Club. The Club has been designated a Platinum Clubs of America Five-Star Club of Excellence from 2016 through 2018. The Club’s amenity offering includes three on-property and two off-property golf courses, as well as 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 that features healthy menu selections. A new Tennis and Aquatic Center is expected to open this spring. A new Sports Center will include a tennis pro shop, as well as dedicated men’s and ladies’ tennis locker rooms. The Bonita Bay Marina is just minutes from the Gulf. Bonita Bay’s residents-only beach park is just 10 to 15 minutes from the community. Residents also enjoy Bonita Bay’s network of biking and hiking paths. A kayaking and canoeing lodge offers additional possibilities.
