Good morning!
It looks like the vacant Summerhouse lot could get some new activity soon in Fort Walton Beach.
The parcel has been empty since 2005 when Alan Laird, who owns AJ’s, had the building shipped by barge from its original spot at Beal Parkway Highway 98 to its existing site just west of Club 51 in Wynnhaven Beach.
According to the Northwest Florida Daily News, development plans for a 100-room hotel have been submitted to the City by Inter Mountain Management where they plan to build a Residence Inn by Marriott.
Here’s what you need to know:
  • The hotel will be 68,000 sqft & 50 ft tall
  • Will include a 100-space parking lot
  • Review of development plans could be done early this week
I would love to see something happen with that property. It looks terrible when sitting at the light at Beal & Highway 98.
What do you think? Can Downtown FWB support another hotel?

It’s hard to miss the roadwork happening on Carson Drive in Fort Walton Beach. The city has been at work daily since the construction started. Now, they have released a video showing the progress with some additional information.
The city tackled this project to alleviate stormwater flooding and to improve the physical appearance and public safety of the area. Streetscape improvements include new sidewalks, on-street parking, landscaping and lighting. We are extremely proud of this project and look forward to the positive impact it will have on the neighborhood and community.
