You may have noticed the old RE/MAX Southern Realty building, located at 34894 Emerald Coast Pkwy. has been gutted. The building, owned by MF Destin LLC., out of Belleair Beach in Southern Florida, is undergoing a facelift to accommodate new retailers in the summer. Alan Davis, a representative of Centennial Bank who is financing the project, told The Log the building is slated to be the home to Mattress Firm and Jimmy John’s Deli, both estimated to open in August. According to the Okaloosa County Property Appraiser’s website, the 0.62-acre parcel was sold by S & V Ventures, LLC to MF Destin, LLC in 2014 for $1.7 million.
