Purchasers at The Ronto Group’s new Infinity luxury high-rise within The Colony in Pelican Landing in Bonita Springs continue to be attracted by how the tower is redefining what high-rise living in Southwest Florida can be like. The 22-story tower will include 96 residences and is being developed by Ronto in partnership with Wheelock Street Capital.
Infinity offers the possibility of living a highly amenitized, resort lifestyle while enjoying spacious residences replete with prestigious designs and exclusive views. Five spacious floor plan choices ranging from 3,075 to 4,020 square feet will be equipped with floorto- ceiling windows and sliding glass doors that embrace panoramic, longrange views of the Gulf of Mexico. The open concept plans provide residents with the creative freedom to design the interiors to suit their unique preferences and tastes. Private elevator foyers, sprawling grand salons and dining areas, spacious owners’ suites and guest bedrooms, gourmet island kitchens fit for a personal chef, and expansive terraces with an additional outdoor kitchen and gas grill all reflect Ronto’s commitment to providing an ultra-luxurious living experience.
A Minnesota native, Jill Kushner moved to Southwest Florida in 1984. She currently resides in a single-family home within the Colony and has purchased a residence at Infinity.
“The Colony is just different and not overwhelming size-wise,” said Jill. “The community is kind of a surprise to a lot of people. It is not dense, and the people who live here like that. Most of the residents are senior executives getting ready to retire and are from the Midwest. They chose the Colony based on its lifestyle and liked the idea of having a lock-and-leave residence. It’s a highly amenitized community. Frank Kevane is from Philadelphia and has owned a residence in Southwest Florida for nearly 20 years.
“We’re living in a high-rise at the Colony now and we’ve lived at Pelican Landing for a lot of years, first in a condo, and then in a house,” said Frank. “Most of those years I was working, and I only got down here for long weekends. I really like living in a high rise. At this stage in our life, this is just easier. It’s lighter, it’s fun. I really like high rise living. The Colony itself is its own bigger community. It is just really well maintained, and I would say that it is attractive. It feels good to live here.
“Infinity is very well thought out and different from the seven high-rises already at the Colony,” said Jill. “It will have 10-foot 4-inch ceilings with floor to ceiling glass. Each unit will have a terrace with a gas grill. The buyers I know love having the grill right at home. Most buyers want three bedrooms, a den, and three-and-a-half baths. Infinity offers that and checks all the boxes, even boxes people didn’t think about, like the two-car garage that’s included with every residence. The floor plans are smarter and offer a dimensional view that includes the golf course, the bay, and the Gulf. Because it’s a through-view design, you’ll also see eastbound. That’s as beautiful as what looks west. Ronto imagined something that was well beyond the scope of how most people thought they could live in a high-rise. The whole thing – two car garages, gas grills, all the amenities – they’re cutting a new path for high-rises in Southwest Florida.”
“I think Ronto has a great reputation,” added Frank. “We live in a very nice place now. I just think Infinity is going to be nicer. It just feels like this property is really going to be nicely high end. That’s appealing in this stage of our life. We’re going in on the ground floor, which can sometimes be advantageous. We look at this as the last place that we will live in Florida. It seems like a winning combination of space, being something new, and we know a few people that have put money down. I think it is a winner and it is positive. That’s what it feels like to me.”
With spectacular vistas of tropical fauna, wetlands, and the Gulf of Mexico, Infinity’s sky-high views are endless. An array of resort-style amenities will feature a beautifully landscaped exterior amenity deck with multiple swimming pools, including a 3,400 square foot family pool, and a 2,500 square foot adult pool. Hot/cold plunge pools are also planned. A poolside café will offer food and beverages. An approximately 2,000 square foot game room, a fitness center, guest suites, bocce courts, pickleball courts with noise buffering screening and spectator benches, social seating, overlook terraces, and a ninehole putting golf course will also be included. The amenities will be expanded to include a second nine-hole putting course and a dog park during construction of the second high-rise.
“The amenity piece at Infinity is so different that it’s almost like an autonomous resort,” said Jill. “You don’t have to go anywhere. There will be private dining, you can play golf, you can swim, you can play pickleball on-property. There will be a grill room, different swimming pools, a putting golf course, game room, guest suites. People can enjoy life without going anywhere. It’s a very private offering.”
“When we heard about the amenities, we were impressed,” agreed Frank. “Like having someone on the desk twenty-four hours a day really appealed to us, because that’s kind of a safety valve if you need something in an emergency. There’s going to be food service, which is great. The pickle ball courts could be fun. There will be an adult pool, a regular pool, and then the saunas. That front desk coverage again and having a grill on your outdoor deck or lanai, those things together are pretty big. It is nice to have that. I kind of like the open-air concept without all the big screens. It all feels like a winner to me.”
Infinity residents will also have access to the exclusive Pelican Landing Beach Park on Big Hickory Island, the Pelican Landing Community Center and Fitness Center, The Pelican Landing Tennis Center, pickleball courts, a kayak facility, a sailing facility, and bocce ball courts. Additionally, Colony residents will have access to a kayak park on Estero Bay that is located within the gates of The Colony, as well as access to The Bay Club, a private, residents only dining facility on Estero Bay. A golf and country club is located within the gates of The Colony. Membership opportunities are available for an additional fee. The Colony Golf & Country Club features an 18-hole golf course designed by Jerry Pate, as well as a clubhouse offering formal and casual dining, a golf shop, a spa and fitness center, and tennis facilities. Infinity is the first of two high-rises Ronto will be building within the gated Colony community and will be the first new high-rise built at The Colony in six years. To date, Ronto has processed sales contracts worth $130,145,000 and the building is fifty percent sold. Pre-construction pricing for the tower’s available residences ranges from $2,495,000 to $4,475,000. The Colony in Pelican Landing is situated just west of Highway 41 on the waters of Estero Bay.
