Ronto is making a special opportunity available to purchasers of tower residences 2003 and 2004 on the 20th floor. Homebuyers may join the two units together to create a 6,200 square foot residence with scintillating Gulf views. The expanded residence will come with four protected access under-building parking spaces. The residences are individually priced at $1,855,000 and at $3,710,000 in the combined unit configuration.

With concrete on the 11th floor already poured and a new floor being poured every two weeks, homebuyers interested in residences on the building’s lower to mid-level floors are urged to make their buying decisions now. Doing so will allow them to take advantage of The Ronto Group’s Finishing Touches Program designed to assist future residents with finish selections and to ensure each residence meets individual buyer preferences. Opportunities to specify finish selections are becoming progressively limited as construction progresses.

The Finishing Touches Program allows future residents to select finishes for their home’s flooring, cabinetry, countertops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors. A fully outfitted kitchen featuring the finishes and appliances available at Seaglass is included at the Design Studio, as well as stone, porcelain, and wood flooring and carpet selections; granite, marble, and quartz countertops; decorative backsplash choices; trim, doors, faucets, and plumbing fixtures; and a gas grill. Future residents are invited to meet with the Finishing Touches Coordinator at the Design Studio and to include the Seaglass building architect and their own interior designer in the Finishing Touches Program selection process. To ensure each residence is finished to each owner’s specific tastes, future residents may also specify finishes from other sources.

Visit the Seaglass Design Studio and Sales Center from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m. Visit Seaglass online at www.seaglassatbonitabay.com. ¦
