Slated for completion in summer 2017, The Watersound Company, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The St. Joe Company is pleased to announce a new development phase for the Watersound Origins community, which is located in South Walton County. The new phase will consist of 107 new lots adjacent to Watersound Origins’ activity center, the Village Commons. Home packages and lots for the new phase will be available next summer—homes starting in the mid $400’s are currently available as part of the existing phase.
“We are thrilled for the new development phase of the Watersound Origins community,” says Bridget Precise, Vice President of Development. “In the last two years, we’ve seen almost 125 new homes built in the community, and we are excited to keep growing that number.”
As part of this, the St. Joe Company is also planning a permanent re-alignment of the Watersound Trail which will continue through the new phase. Spanning five miles between Walton and Bay County, the Watersound Trail winds through St. Joe’s timberlands, beginning at the Village Commons, and connects with Gayle’s Trails in the Panama City Beach Conservation Park.
“We are proud to build a community that promotes a healthy, active lifestyle,” says Bridget Precise. “We are looking forward to re-opening the Watersound Trail in 2017, which is accessible in the Watersound Origins community and open to the public for walking, jogging, or bicycling.”
The addition of this new phase, as well as parks and the Watersound Trail will further enhance the unique outdoor amenities that are offered to Watersound Origins homeowners and to the surrounding community.
