Florida’s Emerald Coast has been watching the progression of Latitude Margaritaville Watersound, and Minto Communities in partnership with Margaritaville Holdings and The St. Joe Company recently announced the amenities and floor plans for this 55+ community in Northwest Florida. The news has only increased the interest and enthusiasm for this new construction, Jimmy Buffett-inspired community.
Amenities Inspire Attitude Adjustments
Whether you’re looking for your “cheeseburger in paradise” or seeking a reason to get your “fins up,” the amenities available at Latitude Margaritaville Watersound will fit the lifestyle of every Parrothead. And even those who aren’t die-hard Buffett fans will still appreciate the sun-filled, laid-back lifestyle his music evokes.
The Latitude Town Square is where most of the community’s activities and events will happen. There’s an outdoor bandshell planned for live entertainment and a full-service Latitude Bar & Chill Restaurant, a two-story space with panoramic views of the Intracoastal Waterway from the upstairs bar area. Residents will enjoy the sprawling pool, which comes with a sunny patio, cabanas, and tiki huts. There’s also the Change in Attitude poolside bar, perfect for spending a day outside under the generous Florida sun.
Traditional amenities will be available in the amenity center, including a business center, a fitness center, and plenty of gathering space for meetings and special events. Homeowners will have access to tennis courts, pickleball courts, and bocce ball courts. There’s a dog park planned as well as walking trails which travel through natural preserves.
A public marina is planned for the waterfront, and there’s also retail space expected to be developed just across the street from the community, making it easy for residents to get their errands done just minutes from home.
