Leaseholder trying to build condos at county park

The 134-unit condo project would unfold at Navarre Beach Marine Park in Florida's Panhandle

A leaseholder controlling almost six acres at county-owned Navarre Beach Marine Park in Florida’s Panhandle is seeking a lease amendment allowing condo construction on the land.

The parkland lease is held by an entity called Shoreline Developers of Florida, LLC.  Navarre Beach Marine Park, part of the Santa Rosa County park system, is sandwiched between Santa Rosa Sound and the Gulf of Mexico.

Real estate developer Vic Deal asked the Navarre Beach Leaseholder Association in a May 17 letter to support a proposed development of 134 condo units in a six-building cluster on the nearly six-acre site.

Deal also stated in his letter to the leaseholder association that its approval isn’t “legally required” for the condo project to advance. The developer is seeking an amendment to the lease subjecting the land to current zoning instead of development restrictions in the lease.

According to Deal’s letter, the land lease now allows only for a three-story metal storage building, “which we believe would not benefit the beach, nor do we have any interest in building.” [Navarre Press] — Mike Seemuth
