Town Center Under Construction at Latitude Margaritaville Watersound

The Town Center is under construction at Latitude Margaritaville Watersound.

It’s time to get ready for a Town Center. Latitude Margaritaville Watersound in Panama City Beach, Florida is now moving towards completing a large part of its featured amenities. The Town Center is officially under construction and will house an outdoor Town Square that includes a large amphitheater, a bandshell, a dance floor, a concert stage, and a jumbo screen.

Here’s what else this social hub and community will have to offer.

Town Center and Lifestyle Amenities

An on-site restaurant called Latitude Bar & Chill will provide waterfront dining.

The Town Center will be the site of main events in the community, but there’s a lot more for residents to anticipate. An on-site restaurant called Latitude Bar & Chill will provide waterfront dining, and there are also food and drink options at the Changes in Attitude Bar and the Overlook Bar. The Fins Up! fitness center will include all the latest machinery, and there’s also an indoor pool and a spa. Outside, the Paradise Pool will feel like a private lagoon and residents will enjoy a Tiki Island and cabanas on the patio.

Sports-minded homeowners will have tennis courts and pickleball courts. The dog park is aptly called Barkaritaville, and a pet spa is planned with the same name. Developers have worked hard to embrace the Jimmy Buffett lifestyle that’s been so popular with similar communities: Latitude Margaritaville Daytona Beach and Latitude Margaritaville Hilton Head.

Access to Everyday Necessities

The amenities and the Town Center are just the beginning. Latitude Margaritaville Watersound will also have a full-service public marina and a commercial village next door. Developers plan to build a medical center minutes away with the help of Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare and Florida State University College of Medicine (FSU). This will cover 87 acres and include a 100-bed inpatient facility as well as research facilities focused on aging and technology that can benefit active adults.
