The developers held a groundbreaking ceremony for a 47-unit condominium on Okaloosa Island off Fort Walton Beach.
They sold more than 50 percent of the units during the pre-construction phase of the development of Blu, a six-story condo that will front the Gulf of Mexico along a 300-foot beach.
Prices start in the high $700,000s. Each unit has a view of the Gulf or the coastline.
The Blue development has four floor plans ranging from three bedrooms and 1,837 square feet to four bedrooms and 2,203 square feet. Unit interiors feature quartz counter tops, porcelain tile flooring and private terraces as deep as 10 feet.
Shared amenities include two Gulf-front swimming pools (one heated), a hot tub and a gym, plus covered parking.
The developers are Crossgate Partners, LLC, led by Randy Moore, and Olson Land Partners, led by Richard Olson.
The leaders of the sales and marketing team for Blu are ResortQuest Real Estate agents Cindy Blanton and Janette Klein. – Mike Seemuth
