A new master planned community is coming soon to Mexico Beach developed by the St. Joe Company. Located approximately 12 miles from the Tyndall Air Force Base near U.S. Highway 98 and the town’s public boat ramp, the 554-acre community will begin with 42 townhomes with site work now underway. Future phases planned include additional townhomes, single-family homes, rental apartments, and a walkable commercial village.
The development of the community coincides with the redevelopment of Tyndall Air Force Base and at a time when the demand for housing in Mexico Beach and surrounding areas is high.
Congress allocated $4.3 billion following Hurricane Michael in 2018 to begin the redevelopment of Tyndall Air Force Base into what the United States Air Force is calling “the base of the future.” This new community is being planned to provide a range of housing options to help meet the expected housing demand from the redevelopment.
“Mexico Beach is a beautiful community with its own unique charm along the white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico,” said Jorge Gonzalez, President and CEO of St. Joe in a press release about the project. “The area is still seeing a housing shortage as a result of the damage caused by Hurricane Michael. That, combined with the future demand for housing that we anticipate as a result of the ongoing redevelopment of Tyndall Air Force Base, makes this the right time to initiate this project and fill a need in the area in a manner that will respect the unique charm of Mexico Beach.”
Site work on the townhome community began earlier in 2021.
“In the nearly three years since Hurricane Michael, our community has been making progress towards rebuilding our town while maintaining and preserving the charm and character that makes it such a special place,” said, Al Cathey, Mayor of Mexico Beach in the same press release. “The start of work on the first phase of this project is a welcomed addition and represents a great milestone in our rebuilding process.”
