Panama City, FL –
PANAMA CITY BEACH Fla. (WMBB) – The shovels are in the ground and construction is underway in downtown Watersound at Latitude Margaritaville.
The project will include a number of luxury amenities for residents of Ward 55 and better.
On Wednesday, The St. Joe Company and its partners inaugurated the region’s downtown area.
Mike Kerrigan, Marketing Director for The St. Joe Company, said living a relaxed and inclusive lifestyle is the mission of the Latitude Margaritaville community.
“The amenity package that residents will be able to enjoy is a big part of that,” Kerrigan said. “It serves as a gathering space for the community and a place for neighbors to come together and enjoy this lifestyle together.
These amenities include a large amphitheater and concert stage, a two-story waterfront restaurant, a fitness center, and indoor and outdoor pools.
“It would be a place we imagine residents really go to every day,” Kerrigan said. “Whether it is to hang out by the pool or to have fun like a concert or a movie in the amphitheater”
There will be approximately 3,500 homes built like the ones behind me in the first phase of the Margaritaville project and the amenities available in the new downtown will only be available to residents of the community.
Phase two of the downtown project will include tennis and pickleball courts.
The people who live in this community will all be full time residents contributing to the local begging economy.
Over 290 housing sites have been sold, and around 125 are under construction.
“Home sales in the community continue now and have been for a good part of this year,” Kerrigan said. “We expect the first residents to move in before the end of 2021.”
According to the St. Joe Company, downtown is slated to open in 2022.
