TAMPA, FL — (April 12, 2022) — Today, Margaritaville and Minto Communities USA announced that Latitude Margaritaville is expanding into Texas – introducing the Austin, Dallas, and Houston markets to the award-winning and wildly popular communities for those 55 and better.
Latitude Margaritaville communities are being developed by Minto and global lifestyle brand, Margaritaville. These communities are inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of singer, songwriter, and best-selling author Jimmy Buffett whose songs evoke a passion for tropical escape and relaxation. There are currently three Latitude Margaritaville communities: Latitude Margaritaville Daytona Beach, Latitude Margaritaville Watersound near Panama City Beach and Scenic Highway 30A, and Latitude Margaritaville Hilton Head, located near Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
“Latitude Margaritaville has redefined how pre-and-active retirement living is viewed forever with a combination of world-class amenities and island-inspired villa, single-family and cottage homes,” said Scott Rogers, Minto’s newly-appointed Vice President of Acquisition and Development – Texas. He will be based in Dallas and will lead Minto, under license from Margaritaville, in strategic land positioning efforts and establishing a development and operating team in each new market. “I am impressed by the innovative placemaking and vision of the Latitude Margaritaville brand. Locations are carefully considered and must meet specific criteria to be selected for a community, including sufficient land; a temperate climate; proximity to an airport; convenient retail and service businesses, and nearby medical offices and hospitals. Another very important factor is convenient access to outstanding leisure-time activities in the surrounding area. Dallas, Austin, and Houston definitely meet these criteria.”
“The sense of community we’ve seen at our previously opened Latitude Margaritaville properties in Daytona Beach, Hilton Head, and Watersound has been truly incredible,” shared Jim Wiseman, President of Development at Margaritaville. “The Margaritaville brand has a strong foundation in Texas. The state represents tremendous opportunity as we expand the development of Latitude Margaritaville communities. We look forward to bringing our iconic lifestyle to the Southwest.”
