Destin New Construction

Despite the fact that Destin was initially settled in the mid-1800s and there is a wealth of historic homes throughout the region, Destin is not without its new constructions. In fact, several new complexes and developments are underway. Explore some of the exciting projects underway on the Destin real estate market:

blu Condominiums

Located fifteen minutes west of Destin on Okaloosa Island, blu is a premier luxury condo complex made up of forty-seven private residences. Already fifty percent of the originally released suites have been sold, and it's easy to understand why. Located on the beach along the quiet Santa Rosa Boulevard, blu has the feel of quiet seclusion, small-town living, and vacation style relaxation, and yet it is only a few minutes from the city of Fort Walton Beach and the larger center of Destin. As such, residents will never be without.

blu condos are anticipated to include kitchens with custom cabinetry and quartz countertops, laundry rooms with full-sized appliances, and bathrooms with comfortable soaker tubs and dual vanities. Size of suites will range from 1,800 to 2,200 square feet. On the grounds, residents can also expect to enjoy oceanfront pools, a grilling area, an outdoor fire pit, and fitness center. As one of the last undeveloped beachfront sites on Okaloosa Island, this building is eagerly anticipated.
