SANTA ROSA BEACH — South Walton may soon have a new indoor family entertainment center similar to a Dave and Buster's.
St. Joe Company President Jorge Gonzalez confirmed Thursday he is working to finalize a deal for a nationally known family entertainment brand for the new Topsail West development. If the deal goes through, the building will be specifically designed for the new business.
"There are about three or four brands of those family entertainment centers in the market," Gonzales said. "But we can't confirm which one."
The building, located next to Walmart on U.S. Highway 98 in South Walton, will be about 30,000 square feet of entertainment space. St. Joe Company has already broken ground within the same complex on a First Watch, which is known for healthy brunch options and light lunches.
Gonzales said there will be another restaurant on the property similar to First Watch, but with an emphasis on lunch and dinner.
Gonzales said there are several confidentiality agreements that limit him from providing details about the two new businesses. However, he said construction may begin on the entertainment center by late this year or in early 2020.
