Plans for the parcel of land at 34751 Emerald Coast Parkway call for a mixed-use strip mall called Destin Retail at Kelly Plantation.

A Sleep Number and Half Shell Oyster House will soon be coming to Destin as tenants in the upcoming Destin Retail at Kelly Plantation strip mall planned for 34751 Emerald Coast Parkway.

The lot, located beside Mattress Firm, faces both Commons Drive and Emerald Coast Parkway.

Harry Bell of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, brokered the sale of the 1.8-acre lot for $1.235 million dollars to Terra Destin LLC. of Birmingham, Alabama.

“We should be breaking ground by the end of the month and it will take about six months of construction so we should be opening right before the end of the year,” said Bell.

Plans for the strip mall call for a four-tenant space, with Sleep Number and Half Shell Oyster House as the anchor stores, but the other two spaces have yet to be leased.
