Sandestin Investments has broken ground on a new condo development, Osprey Pointe at Sandestin. Completion is slated for February 2020.

In the 1940s and 1950s families that visited SoWal every Summer stayed in quaint cottages - some were simple and practical concrete block homes that stayed cooler on hot days and defied the elements. Some of the getaways were wooden shotgun shacks moved down to the beach from Old Point Washington where they had housed workers when lumber was booming.
