The newly announced Latitude Margaritaville Watersound will be located near Panama City Beach, FL.

When Minto Communities and Margaritaville Holdings announced they were partnering to develop new active adult communities inspired by the music and laidback lifestyle of singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett, the news sent potential buyers into a tizzy. The initial community location in Daytona Beach, Florida opened sales in October and interest was sky-high. The same goes for their second location in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Now, they’ve announced the location of the third Latitude Margaritaville, which will be built in Bay County near Panama City Beach in Florida’s Panhandle. 

Latitude Margaritaville Watersound will be located in the St. Joe’s Bay-Walton Sector Plan close to the 30A corridor. Minto and Margaritaville Holdings are partnering with The St. Joe Company, which owns roughly 15 miles of frontage property on the Intracoastal Waterway that connects West Bay and Choctawhatchee Bay. 

"Minto is proud to work with St. Joe and Margaritaville to bring Latitude Margaritaville Watersound to this beautiful part of Florida,” said Minto's Latitude Margaritaville Division President William Bullock. “Our audience has been asking for a Gulf of Mexico location, and this is a perfect complement to our other coastal destinations in Daytona Beach and Hilton Head."

The community is expected to open in early 2020. 55Places.com will share more information on this and other Latitude Margaritaville locations as it becomes available.
