Minto Communities has announced a new partnership with Florida-based Margaritaville Holdings for several housing communities based around the Jimmy Buffett lifestyle brand, with the first being a 6,900-home retirement community in Daytona Beach.
The new 55-and-
It will feature "Old Florida/islands" architectural stylings with a town center for residents and a 200,000-square-foot commercial development.
The town center will feature a fitness center with indoor lap pool and spa, an outdoor resort-style pool, and indoor and outdoor dining with signature Margaritaville food and beverage concepts, but the focal point will be the bandshell, where live music will be offered on a regular basis, including concerts that will be broadcast on Margaritaville SiriusXM Channel.
With all those margaritas being enjoyed at the retirement community driving to the beach wouldn’t be wise, so a shuttle bus will take residents to a private oceanfront beach club in Ormond-by-the-Sea. Sadly, the shuttle won’t take residents to the Daytona Beach bar where Jimmy Buffett found inspiration for his song "Fins."
Models and sales center will open later this year; the first residents of the Latitude Margaritaville development move in in early 2018.
