Watersound Town Center Updates & Info
September 16, 2022 by SoWal Staff
Watersound Town Center welcomes new tenants and announces future tenants as construction progresses on additional buildings at the growing center. Among the recently opened and future tenants are innovative dining concepts, unique retailers and medical offices.
Ambrosia Prime Seafood & Steaks opened in August becoming the lifestyle center’s first restaurant. The upscale eatery serves dinner nightly and features a chic design in its dining room, large bar area and expansive outdoor patio.
Above Ambrosia, on the second floor, two medical service providers recently opened their doors and began seeing patients. Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast’s Women’s Diagnostic Center recently opened, providing breast screenings and mammography services using the latest imaging technology. Dermatology Specialists of Florida and Aqua Medical Spa opened a new office offering general and cosmetic dermatology, plastic surgery and hair transplant and restoration, among other services. These tenants join the existing Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast primary care clinic that opened at Watersound Town Center in 2020.
Additional tenant openings are scheduled for this fall, including the highly anticipated Publix Super Market and neighboring Publix Liquors. The store will feature a pharmacy, a deli and a bakery. A new Capital City Bank is also under construction. Also in 2023 are the planned openings of Electric Cart Watersound and Grand Nail Lounge.
New dining concepts are also in store for Watersound Town Center. Seagrove Village Market, the iconic local eatery that has been serving fresh local seafood and southern classics since 1949, will soon be opening their second location at the town center in a stand-alone building that is currently under construction. Marco’s Pizza, with its popular delivery and dine-in pizza concept and Bahama Buck’s, the growing tropical dessert chain serving shaved ice, smoothies and other dessert items are planning to open in 2023.
Watersound Town Center is being built with walkability and bikeability at the heart of its design, with wide sidewalks fronting tree-lined streets in the east side of the center, where open spaces for gathering will complement a diverse mix of restaurants, shops and office space. Publix Super Market and the retail space that will surround it will offer visitors drive-up convenience and ample parking on the west side of the center. The Pavilion at Watersound Town Center, a covered event space, has already become a popular destination for events that have included a weekly farmers’ market, live music, outdoor movies and other family-friendly programming.
"It has been exciting to see the first Watersound Town Center tenants open their doors and start welcoming customers," said Samantha Walton, Director of Sales and Leasing for The St. Joe Company (NYSE: JOE), Watersound Town Center’s owner. "We intend for this center to become a convenient destination for people whether they are running their weekly errands, visiting a professional office or spending a leisurely day strolling the town center and discovering new and unique restaurants and shops."
In addition to the building for Publix Super Market and the neighboring inline space and the Capital City Bank, several new buildings are currently under construction at Watersound Town Center that are anticipated to be completed in 2023. Plans call for several thousand square feet of retail and office space at full build-out.
