Latitude Margaritaville Watersound partners Minto Communities USA, Margaritaville Holdings and The St. Joe Company recently started construction on 13 model homes at the highly anticipated 55-and-better community. The models are projected to open in April 2021 with each model designed to have a carefree, tropical vibe in line with the “no worries” lifestyle associated with the community brand.
Located near Panama City Beach along the Intracoastal Waterway, Latitude Margaritaville Watersound is the third Latitude Margaritaville community to be developed by Minto and Margaritaville and the first in partnership with St. Joe. Four distinct home collections will be available – Conch Cottage Collection, Caribbean Villas Collection, and Beach and Island Collections of single-family homes. Home plans range from approximately 1,204 to 2,564 square feet of living space with prices anticipated to start in the $200s.
“The sense of community we’ve seen at our previously opened Latitude Margaritaville properties in Daytona and Hilton Head has been incredible, especially during this challenging year,” shared Jim Wiseman, President of Margaritaville Development in a recent press release about the community. “We’re thrilled to partner with Minto and St. Joe to open a new, neighborly community in Northwest Florida, where residents can feel safe, comfortable, and supported – all while living like they’re on vacation.”
The concept of the community is inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of Jimmy Buffett, singer, songwriter, and best-selling author. The tropical escape and relaxation themes associated with Buffett’s songs resonate with today’s vibrant and active 55-and-better home buyers. Development commenced on the community’s first 258 homesites including the 13 model homes. The first phase of Latitude Margaritaville Watersound is projected to include approximately 3,500 homes.
A town center similar to existing Latitude Margaritaville communities is planned for Latitude Margaritaville Watersound with amenities that mirror upscale destination resorts such as a Town Square with concert stage and jumbo movie screen, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a lagoon-style swimming pool, dining options, a dog park, tennis and pickleball courts, and nature trails.
“The start of construction on the model homes at Latitude Margaritaville Watersound represents another significant milestone for this community,” said Jorge Gonzalez, President and CEO of St. Joe in a community press release. “We look forward to welcoming future residents to visit the community and tour the model homes in early 2021. In addition to the homes and amenities that are being planned for Latitude Margaritaville Watersound, the community’s proximity to Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, the beach and local shopping centers is sure to appeal to 55-and-better home buyers from across the country.”
