Margaritaville Holdings and Minto Communities Announce Partnership to Develop New Active Lifestyle Destinations
First Location Set for Daytona Beach, Florida
Orlando, Fla. – February 16, 2017 – Margaritaville Holdings and Minto Communities today announced a partnership that will develop new active adult communities in some of the nation’s most popular destinations. The first location of the all-new residential concept will open in Daytona Beach, Florida (see renderings below). The Sales Center at LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE, Daytona Beach has already broken ground and is slated to open in Fall 2017.
“We are excited to partner with Minto and believe this relationship will redefine lifestyle destination living in Daytona Beach,” said John Cohlan, chief executive officer of Margaritaville. “With Minto’s expertise in creating master planned developments and Margaritaville’s inherent ability to deliver fun and escapism, Latitude Margaritaville has the exact coordinates for those looking to live the Margaritaville lifestyle as they grow older, but not up.”
Featuring world-class amenities and design, LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE, Daytona Beach will reflect Margaritaville’s authentic, “no worries,” tropical vibe, offering an immersive brand experience. Current plans call for walkable neighborhoods and a Town Center featuring a fitness center with an aerobics studio, indoor lap pool, spa, and group fitness classes; indoor and outdoor dining with signature Margaritaville food and beverage concepts, as well as others; arts and learning programs for residents and guests; and a resort pool area with beach entry. In true Margaritaville fashion, music will also play an important part in the community, with a band shell for live entertainment in the Town Center. A private beachfront club with breathtaking views and beachfront amenities will be set on the Atlantic Ocean, which residents can access via a continuous loop shuttle service.
“For over 60 years Minto has focused on providing incredible lifestyle in the communities we create,” said Bill Bullock, senior vice president of Minto Communities. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Margaritaville to put the exclamation point on fun living for active adults!”
With an ideal location in Daytona Beach at LPGA Blvd. and I-95, the destination offers access to the area’s world-famous beaches; championship golf at LPGA International; Daytona International Speedway; Daytona Beach International Airport; the new Daytona One entertainment, dining and shopping destination; and much more.
Additional details on plans are expected later this year.
