Set on five miles of pristine coastline, SweetBay is a walkable mixed-use, master-planned community in Panama City, FL, offering bayside living and southern charm. The pedestrian-friendly community is planned to include seven neighborhoods interconnected with recreation, a shopping district, and restaurants.
With an emphasis on wellness, SweetBay will have public parks, trails, and bike paths, allowing residents to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. 73 acres have been preserved through a conservation easement encompassing nearly 5 miles of frontage on Saint Andrews Bay. Residents will have direct access to the Bay’s swimmable shores, a 117-slip marina, and boathouse launch site for boats, kayaks, and paddleboards.
SweetBay’s first neighborhood, Academy Park, is now open. Upon completion, the neighborhood will have a swimming pool, three parks, and University Academy, a K-8 charter school named first in its district based on 2014 standard state scores.
