WATERSOUND, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The St. Joe Company (NYSE: JOE) (“St. Joe”) today announced the commencement of development of 80 homesites in the Breakfast Point community in Panama City Beach, Florida. Development of this new phase was initiated to meet the demand for new homes in the Breakfast Point community and will increase the total number of homesites from 369 to 449 upon completion.
The Breakfast Point community is centrally located in Panama City Beach in close proximity to shopping, the area’s white-sand beaches and local schools including Breakfast Point Academy which is located within the community.
