Now underway, the architectural masterpiece overlooking Southwest Florida’s first aquatic preserve will set a new standard of luxury living in Bonita Springs.

Coming soon to one of Southwest Florida’s last available stretches of waterfront is The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Estero Bay. Inspired by its coastal setting, two towers of architectural splendor present a refined palette by award-winning architecture and design firms, exuding sophistication and casual luxury at every turn. With multiple sales to close out the end of 2023, the property’s South Tower is now over 70 percent sold, totaling $355 million in sales to date with delivery anticipated for early 2026.

Led by the visionary London Bay Development Group, The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Estero Bay, will be comprised of 224 residences, rising 22 stories overlooking 500 acres of lush nature, with breathtaking views of Estero Bay, and the Gulf of Mexico. The team enlisted globally acclaimed architectural firm, Arquitectonica, and world-class New York interior design studio Meyer Davis to curate a masterpiece that celebrates its setting and incomparable coastal living.

The combination of design and architectural expertise represents a new generation of development along the Gulf Coast, said Mark Wilson, C.E.O. of London Bay Development Group, “We found that much of the architectural design currently on the west coast of Florida has been following a certain predictable pattern — and we felt this enormous tract offered us an opportunity to create something very design-forward in this area,” he said.

“We have assembled a design team with national and international experience, all recognized as leaders in their industry, including Arquitectonica, Meyer Davis Studio and EDSA, who have been working together to create something entirely new for the Gulf Coast. The site is very different from other projects where designers have to cope with significant size restrictions. With us, we are starting with more than 30 acres, and that gives our designers the breathing room to create a vast manmade lagoon with expansive indoor and outdoor amenities overlooking the bay — all with immediate access to nearly 150 acres of natural eco parks set apart for people to enjoy,” he added.

Situated between Sanibel Island and Naples, Florida, alongside the scenic Estero Bay, these residences offer a unique opportunity for the renowned brand in a secluded oasis. Priced from the $3 millions, the homes feature open floorplans with a contemporary palette and classic design, reflecting the natural essence of the Gulf Coast through natural colors, raw textures, and soft touches. The towers' cascading façades, inspired by the waterfront undulation, purposefully frame the sky, seamlessly blending with the surrounding topography.Residences range in size from 2,628 to 3,885 square feet, featuring two, three, and four bedrooms, and offering three finish packages. Each unit includes a den for flexible use, such as a family room, library, or hobby space. A dedicated private elevator entry adds seclusion, while spacious balconies up to 2,200 square feet enhance enjoyment of daily life with glass railings that allow for uninterrupted waterfront vistas.

Iconic Ritz-Carlton service and personal connections with residents will permeate all aspects of ownership, from private training sessions to spa treatments. Extensive indoor amenities span 36,000 square feet and speak to all pastimes and passions. This includes a Wellness Center with garden views offering fitness, a yoga and Pilates studio, personal training rooms and locker rooms with steam and sauna. The Oasis, a centrally located, 8,000-square-foot space will present a Sunset Lounge, private dining room, Sports & News Café, Wine & Whiskey room with temperature-controlled storage, card room, and demonstration and catering kitchen.

The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Estero Bay’s outdoor oasis stimulates wellness, surrounded by enchanting gardens by landscape architect EDSA. Homeowners can enjoy three pools and floating-like pavilions at the expansive lagoon water feature. Bocce courts, multiple fire pits and barbeque stations also provide group gatherings with the opportunity to make deep connections.

Part of the new master-planned coastal village of Saltleaf on Estero Bay, residents will neighbor the now underway Saltleaf Marina and can easily tee off at Saltleaf Golf Preserve, a reimagined 18-hole championship golf course with a brand new nine-hole short course now officially open to the public. Venture into the surrounding waters for a day of adventure, take a short drive to Naples for luxury shopping or spend time soaking in the charm of nearby Bonita Springs. Getting to The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Estero Bay is easy, located just 20 minutes from Southwest Florida International Airport.
