Minto Communities USA Receives NAHB 55+ Housing Silver Award for Latitude Margaritaville Watersound Town Square Amenity

 Minto Communities USA was recognized with a National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) 55+ Housing Silver Award at the 2024 International Builders Show (IBS) held in Las Vegas, Nevada, February 27-29. Minto’s Latitude Margaritaville Watersound amenity center won the silver “Best in 55+ Housing Award” in the Best Community Amenity category. 

Latitude Margaritaville Watersound is located on Northwest Florida’s Emerald Coast between Pensacola and Panama City, near Panama City Beach, Florida. Latitude Margaritaville communities are being developed by Minto Communities under license from global lifestyle brand Margaritaville Holdings. The newest location of the enormously popular communities, Latitude Margaritaville Watersound is being developed in partnership with The St. Joe Company.

The award-winning Latitude Margaritaville Watersound Town Square overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway. It features a terraced amphitheater, thatched roof bandshell, full-size concert stage for live music and a jumbo screen for live streaming and movies and a specially surfaced dance floor that provides a little give and spring for dancers. A two-story Latitude Bar & Chill restaurant with rooftop Overlook Bar provides a range of Margaritaville-inspired food and beverage concoctions, live entertainment and panoramic views of the Intracoastal Waterway. 

A massive lagoon-style Paradise Pool with beach-like gradual entry and shaded Tiki Island is surrounded by an expansive sun deck. A state-of-the-art Fins Up! Fitness Center offers indoor lap pool and whirlpool spa, workout equipment, spin room, fitness classes and wellness program. Tennis, pickleball and bocce ball courts have lighting for night play, and an outdoor game lawn offers cornhole, billiards, table tennis, a putting green and more. The community also features a Barkaritaville Dog Park for canine residents. Future planned amenities include a Workin’ N’ Playin’ Center with a Last Mango Theater, Hangar Workshop and Barkaritaville Pet Spa. 

Latitude Margaritaville communities are inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle depicted in the songs of famed singer, songwriter and best-selling author Jimmy Buffett. They have captured the imagination of today’s vibrant and active 55-and-better market with a laid-back lifestyle of fun, food, music and escapism. More than 550,000 prospective home buyers are registered as Latitude Margaritaville Paradise Club members to receive ongoing information and updates.  

Latitude Margaritaville communities also are located in Daytona Beach, Florida and near Hilton Head in Hardeeville, South Carolina. Additional Latitude Margaritaville communities are being planned for Texas and other popular destinations.
