Construction of Ronto’s Luxurious Omega High-Rise at Bonita Bay Underway

The Ronto Group and partners Wheelock Street Capital, LLC have commenced construction on Omega at Bonita Bay, a 67-unit, 27 story ultra-luxury high-rise overlooking Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Omega is located on the last development parcel in the award-winning Bonita Bay community.  Construction has been financed by a loan arranged by Steve Klein, Brian Gaswirth and Reid Carlton with JLL.

“We are extremely proud to be writing the final chapter in the development of Bonita Bay with a tower that will be the pinnacle of high rise living in southwest Florida,” said Anthony Solomon, owner of The Ronto Group.  “The design, finishes, and livability will be unparalleled in the market.  Thanks to the team at JLL, we are honored to be working with best in class organizations.”

Residences at Omega are sized from 4,210 to 6,455 square feet under air and priced from $2.3 to $7 million. Omega is scheduled for completion in 3rd to 4th quarter of 2022.

Omega offers an approach to high-rise living never available in Southwest Florida until now. The building’s tower residences offer expansive views of Estero Bay and the Gulf that 78-feet or 68-feet wide. The tower is designed to provide the newest and largest luxury high-rise residences in Southwest Florida. With every fully completed tower residence including expansive open-concept living areas, spacious covered outdoor terraces, luxurious features and finishes, a private elevator lobby, a private air-conditioned storage space on the same floor as the residence, and a private enclosed two-car garage, Omega offers unprecedented value. Ronto and architect Robert Swedroe focused on creating the building from the inside out based on interviews with potential purchasers. The purchasers indicated view corridors and spacious, open floor plans with flowing living areas, large owner suites and secondary bedrooms, big outdoor living areas, private garages, and readily accessible storage space were all critical to the living experience. Rather than wanting to downsize by moving into a condominium with less square footage than their single-family homes, potential purchasers wanted to simplify their lives by moving into a maintenance-free environment without sacrificing space or livability.

Ronto and Swedroe’s design takes advantage of innovative high-rise construction methods and materials. They created a three unit per floor approach that allowed the residences to be wider and more spacious than any of the other high-rise towers under construction in Southwest Florida. As a result, the Omega tower and penthouse 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 that will offer incredible views of Estero Bay and the Gulf. The living spaces, owners’ suites, and some of the guest bedrooms will open to outdoor terraces featuring 42-inch high glass railings.

Ronto has included 18,000 square feet of indoor amenities at Omega, including a grand salon, a library and card room, and a billiards and game room. A clubroom will measure more than 3,000 square feet and feature tall windows overlooking an exterior amenity deck. The clubroom will include a bar, a linear fireplace, and a full kitchen. Omega’s 600 square-foot theater will and offer plush couches and chaises to enhance the movie viewing experience. A 2,100 square-foot fitness center will be located on the north side of the building.

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. Omega’s 4,200 square foot rooftop terrace common area will include two hot tubs positioned next the terraces’ glass railing. Through a variety of membership opportunities, Omega residents can also take advantage of the amenities available through Bonita Bay Club.

The Ronto Group continues to build a rock-solid reputation for imaginative vision, steadfast integrity, and reliable performance. Headquartered in Naples, Ronto’s expertise in land development and high-rise construction has been acknowledged internationally as lasting examples of thoughtful community planning, dedicated craftsmanship, and exemplary luxury lifestyles.

Ronto is creating an impressive legacy within Southwest Florida’s luxury homebuyer market. From TwinEagles’ classic country club ambiance, to Naples Square’s walkable lifestyle, the glittering Omega and Seaglass high-rise towers at Bonita Bay, the new Eleven Eleven Central community in downtown Naples, and the gated, resort-style Orange Blossom Naples community, Ronto is shaping how people live in one of the most desirable locales in the world. Ronto was named recipient of the Gold Award for Best Developer in the Naples Daily News’ 2016 People’s Choice Awards.

Long view: Developer sees post-lockdown surge of activity as trends converge

Ronto Group, a privately held Naples-based developer of luxury condo towers up and down the Gulf Coast, planned the 22-story Altura Bayshore well before the coronavirus pandemic changed life as we know it. But in retrospect, the building’s design and amenities seem almost prescient.

Designed by Curts Gaines Hall Jones Architects, the $80 million South Tampa project — at 2907 S. Ysabella Ave., overlooking the city’s renowned Bayshore Boulevard — features a host of bells and whistles, such as private elevators, that will appeal to buyers in the new era of social distancing.

However, after opening a sales center for Altura Bayshore in December, Ronto Group was forced to shutter it when the pandemic struck.

Anthony Solomon is the second-generation owner of Naples-based Ronto Group, the developer of Altura Bayshore.
“Having to shut the sales office for a couple months was not what we wanted to do,” says Anthony Solomon, the second-generation owner of Ronto Group who’s run the firm since 2008. “But it had to be done for everyone’s safety.”

Solomon, 45, says he didn’t let the economic shutdown throw him and his team off track: They quickly shifted their sales presentations to video conferencing platforms like Zoom. In another prescient move, Ronto Group invested in the development of videos that would give potential buyers a virtual yet lifelike “fly-through” look at Altura Bayshore, inside and out, even though construction won’t begin in earnest until next year. That served to highlight the development’s many features, like pickleball and bocce courts, putting green and a dog-walking area, that appeal to people who are now spending much more of their time at home.

“We’re fortunate that we planned it with all these great outdoor spaces, private elevators and things like that,” Solomon says. We have everything that people are focused on. All of that was baked into the plan beforehand, so we haven’t had to make any changes and we’re certainly reaping the benefits now.”

The project timeline also proved to be a blessing in disguise, because Ronto Group didn’t have to lay off or furlough any of its 35 employees, or halt construction, Solomon says. During the time it couldn’t make sales presentations in person, the company invested in its website, tweaking it so it would get more traffic from people stuck in their homes. For example, Ronto Group added a button to the Altura Bayshore homepage that, when clicked on, would take users directly to a page where they could sign up for a virtual presentation.

“People have been reaching out for Zoom presentations,” Solomon says. “They’re educating themselves. So now, when they come in, they’re zeroed in on which floor plan they like and what features they’re after, and they come with a good list of questions that we can answer.”

Ronto Group hoped for the best, but expected the worst — so Solomon was pleasantly surprised when four buyers made reservations, which require deposits, in mid-July as soon as the sales office reopened. (A deposit for a residence in Altura ranges from $25,000 for a regular unit to $50,000 for a penthouse unit. Residences are priced between $1 million and $2.9 million.)

“Nobody really knew what to expect, post-COVID,” Solomon says. “It’s been a trying time seeing what’s happening around the country … but one of the unintended consequences [of the pandemic] is that you started having people want to come to Florida to get out of New York or New Jersey or wherever.”

luxury-condos-tampa-waterfront
A rendering of Ronto Group’s Altura Bayshore project in Tampa.
Solomon estimates about a third of Altura Bayshore’s 18 reservations have come from out-of-town buyers. It’s a trend he foresaw when residents of the Miami area, a coronavirus hotspot, began buying units at Ronto Group’s projects in Naples. But in a sign of Altura’s broad appeal, other trends have also converged to drive sales.

“The balance of our market (is) who we thought it would be: people who are living in South Tampa that are ready to move to high-rise living,” he says. “We also have a lot of people from the north Tampa Bay area ready to get out of gated communities.”

Another design differentiator, Solomon says, is the way the residences have been envisioned as “thru units,” meaning they offer views to both the east and west, while the end units offer views in three directions.

“We’re delivering by far the best value for a new tower on the Bayshore corridor,” he says. “With these ‘see-through,’ front-to-back units, you get a view out of both sides. It’s amazing — every unit has a view of the bay.”
