Latitude Margaritaville Watersound development partners have announced the opening of the community’s Latitude Town Square amenities. Latitude Margaritaville Watersound is located on Northwest Florida’s gorgeous Emerald Coast near Panama City Beach and the Scenic Highway 30A corridor and is being developed in a dynamic partnership between master developer Minto Communities USA (“Minto”), global lifestyle brand Margaritaville Holdings, and The St. Joe Company (NYSE: JOE) (“St. Joe”).
The new Latitude Margaritaville Watersound Town Square is situated on the Intracoastal Waterway and features a terraced amphitheater, thatched roof bandshell with full-size concert stage and jumbo screen for concerts and movies. A special recessed dance floor provides a little give and spring for dancing. Dining options include a two-story Latitude Bar & Chill restaurant with rooftop Overlook Bar, all providing stunning views of the Intracoastal Waterway.
The lagoon-style Paradise Pool with beach-like gradual entry features an expansive deck and shaded Tiki Island. For indoor swimming, the state-of-the-art Fins Up! Fitness Center includes a lap pool and spa, in addition to workout equipment, spin room, fitness classes and a robust wellness program. Tennis and pickleball courts have lighting for night play, along with bocce ball courts and an outdoor games area with cornhole, billiards and a putting green. Additionally, the community now features a Barkaritaville Dog Park where canine residents can romp and play. Future planned amenities include a Workin’ N’ Playin’ Center with the Last Mango Theater, Hangar Workshop for golf cart tune ups, and Barkaritaville Pet Spa.
Latitude Margaritaville Watersound is the third of the incredibly popular, award-winning Latitude Margaritaville communities, and the first to be developed in partnership with St. Joe. The first two communities by Minto and Margaritaville are located in Daytona Beach, Florida and near Hilton Head, South Carolina. Minto and Margaritaville plan additional Latitude Margaritaville communities for Texas, as well as other popular destinations.
Latitude Margaritaville’s all-new approach to active adult living has captured the imagination of today’s vibrant 55 and better home buyers who are growing older…but not up, and home sales have exceeded all expectations.
The Latitude Margaritaville Watersound sales center and model homes are open daily. Four distinct home collections — the Conch Cottage Collection, Caribbean Villas Collection, and Beach and Island Collections of single-family homes — capture the “no worries” tropical vibe that defines Latitude Margaritaville. Floor plans range from 1,210 to 2,568 square feet under air with pricing from the low $300s.
Latitude Margaritaville Watersound is situated in the heart of St. Joe’s vast Bay-Walton Sector Plan that encompasses approximately 110,500 acres with approximately 15 miles of frontage on the Intracoastal Waterway. Just a short drive from the famed Scenic Highway 30A corridor with its beautiful white-sand beaches, this region is the embodiment of the relaxed, beachy vibe that is at the heart of the Latitude Margaritaville lifestyle.
In addition to the many Latitude Margaritaville amenities, St. Joe has plans for a future full-service public marina and Watersound West Bay Center, a commercial village adjacent to the community. St. Joe is also developing a health care campus, along with Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare and Florida State University (FSU) College of Medicine, located just minutes from Latitude Margaritaville Watersound. The healthcare campus is located on an 87-acre parcel near the intersection of State Highway 79 and Phillip Griffitts Sr. Parkway. In addition to the planned 100-bed inpatient facility, FSU intends to utilize the campus for research focused on successful aging and senior living technology. Phase 1 is currently under construction.
The Latitude Margaritaville Watersound sales center is located at 9201 Highway 79, Panama City Beach, Florida. Model homes are open daily, Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central. For information, call 866-524-0144.
