Highly attractive business locations with existing infrastructure
Proximity to highly skilled labor and downtown business districts
Increased state loan guarantees to improve lending opportunities
Use of federal, state and local resources to assist in the redevelopment of brownfields
Location:Approximately 360 acres, located one mile north of US Highway 98 in western Fort Walton Beach.
