Making Waves in Watersound! FROM PLANNING TO OPENING DAY STEP ONE: Finding the Perfect Location There was no question about the choice of the spectacular setting for the next Latitude Margaritaville in Florida’s gorgeous Panhandle Region. The first step in site planning for the new community was to explore its thousands of acres to find the perfect location for its resort-style amenities and Town Center. The planning team set out in four-wheel drives into the property’s dense woods where they discovered old trails. Following the trails, they found it — an area with an incredible view that inspired love at first sight. “We just knew that the breathtaking views of the Intracoastal Waterway from this site absolutely had to be enjoyed by all of our future residents,” said Len Capozzo, Director of Community Planning. The site’s high elevation of almost 20’ provides a view of the vast land and waterscape below. Oak Hammocks dot the landscape, and a creek meanders through acres of rolling grass flats to the Intracoastal Waterway. But this is just the beginning of great things to come! Watch your Barefoot Bulletin for step two: proceeding with site design for Latitude Margaritaville Watersound amenities. The one-of-a-kind setting for Latitude Margaritaville Watersound features amazing views. Our planning team selected the ideal site for the community’s future amenities. 6 MAKING WAVES IN WATERSOUND
