Introducing Panama City Beach

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Edgewater Beach Realty

The golden sunshine, southern hospitality and quaint beachside charm you've always experienced in Panama City Beach is nothing new.  What is new, however, is almost everything else! A new skyline of distinctive architecture fills the horizon, and a collection of enchanting eateries, exhilarating attractions and chic retail are arriving daily. New museums, theaters, galleries and parks are on their way. The pedestrian friendly renovation of Front Beach Road that parallels the Gulf of Mexico will bring sidewalks, bike trails, tropical landscaping, a public trolley system and a fresh new look to the beach.

The development of Back Beach Road (Highway 98) that runs through the heart of Panama City Beach is making history and this is only the beginning!   READ MORE

At 4000 acres, the new airport site will be larger than Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport. The new Bay County International Airport, scheduled to break ground in mid 2007, will be completed in 2009 opening travel channels throughout the US, Europe and Asia. Panama City Beach will quickly emerge as one of the most sought-after travel destinations in the world.

Visit the Pier Park or Towne of Seahaven websites to get just a small taste of what is coming! This sleepy seaside place called Panama City Beach is making news....and taking names.

EAST BAY - An Old Florida Coastal Town

view East Bay website

The East Bay community has been created as an old Florida coastal town by balancing tradition and progressive sensibilities to make an ideal livable neighborhood. Emphasizing the classic Florida cracker style of architecture, East Bay borrows the best ideas of the past while utilizing only the finest modern materials and building processes.

This is one of the most beautiful areas of Bay County and is located on a point of land spanning the waters of East Bay. Scenic Highway 98, a main thoroughfare for the Northwest Florida coastline, runs through the center of town.

Residents will appreciate the attention to detail and thoughtful planning which includes ample open spaces, pedestrian friendly design and preservation of the waterfront land. In keeping with tradition, there will be a vital Town Center with shops, restaurants and services always within a five minute walk from your doorstep- at East Bay, cars are optional.

Location: Just 20 minutes east of Panama City, East Bay is set along St. Andrews Bay on Florida's fabulous Gulf Coast.

Town Center: "Old Florida" style Town Center with commercial space including shops, cafes and services designed to be pedestrian friendly.

Land: East Bay comprises 1,300 acres of property with a mile of frontage along St. Andrews Bay.

Homes: A wide selection of home styles is offered, with many water view parcels available.

Community: Abundant civic space, neighborhood parks, waterfront walk, and swimming pool.

Boating: Two private marinas on the bay.
