Attention, Jimmy Buffett fanatics: Your retirement plans can now include getting wasted away in Margaritaville without boarding a jet to paradise. The first Buffett-themed “active adult community“—dubbed Latitude Margaritaville—is slated to open as early as fall 2017, with “lifestyle destination living” joining the singer-songwriter’s successful restaurant and hotel portfolio.
The first of a planned chain of retirement centers—a collaboration between Buffett’s Margaritaville Holdings and residential developers Minto Communities—will make landfall in Daytona Beach, Fla. Parrotheads can expect amenities that reflect the singer’s personal style. Residents can experience a “no worries” island feel while lounging at the resort pool or heading to the beach. Music enthusiasts can enjoy live entertainment in the Town Center and at the private beach club. Community restaurants and bars will include indoor and outdoor dining options. A fitness complex will offer an aerobics studio, an indoor lap pool, a spa and group fitness classes to help residents work off all of those frozen concoctions and cheeseburgers in paradise.
If you’re inspired to sell the condo and live happily ever after, check the company’s website for updates about this new community. But you won’t be alone: More than 10,000 people have registered interest in purchasing one of Margaritaville Latitude’s 7,000 two- and three-bedroom houses, which are expected to list for $200,000 to $350,000.
