Hammock Bay General Store
Hammock Bay’s anxiously awaited General Store opened in Hammock Bay’s Town Center in the summer of 2019. Its inspiration came from Freeport’s original general store know as Wards Cafe. The Hammock Bay General Store is a fully functioning throwback replica reminiscent of the small-town feel of turn-of-the-century general stores. It features a walk-in beverage cooler, full line of cold drinks, ice cream and other frozen selections, dry goods, hot food, coffee, local goods, lottery and more. The interior showcases floor-to-ceiling rough poplar wood walls, polished and stained concrete floors, and vintage photographs of historic Freeport and its original general store. Three covered porches with rocking chairs wrap around the General Store, providing a perfect spot to relax and enjoy. Located adjacent to Hammock Bay’s Town Green and Event Stage, the General Store is open to the public and is a convenient stop for owners and residents of Hammock Bay.
Freedom Beacon Park
Freedom Beacon Park will transform the north side of the City of Fort Walton Beach into a bustling commerce center bringing jobs, shopping, entertainment, housing, and hotel rooms accommodations. The leased land will be developed into a master designed, mixed-use complex with 288 multi-family luxury residences, 102 room hotel, 55,000 sq ft of road frontage for restaurants and retail space, 160,000 sq ft of Class A office space, and an impressive 4-acre recreational park. The Jay Odom Group also plans to re-take the title for Florida’s Tallest Flag in the center of Freedom Beacon Park.
On November 27th, 2018, The Jay Odom Group executed a 50-year ground lease through the U.S. Air Force Enhanced Use Lease Program. Along Eglin Air Force Base’s southern perimeter, the 52-acre tract of land is located at 1900 Lewis Turner Blvd. in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. The Jay Odom group also annexed the property into the city Fort Walton Beach which grants it access to first responder, water, and sewer services which adds new revenue to the City through property taxes, development fees, building permit fees, utility and stormwater usage fees. The Lease also benefits the Air Force by allowing them to collect rent on under-utilized, non-excess Air Force real estate and all rent for the Freedom Beacon Project will be used locally to fund base infrastructure.
The groundbreaking ceremony was held at the property on December 21st, 2018 at 10:00 am.
The Jay Odom Group built Destin Jet and operated its 5,500 square-foot facility, which also included 10 hangars totaling 40,000 square feet, from 2009 until 2016. Destin Jet was ranked among the world’s top 10 FBOs within 3 years of its opening in 2009. Six years later, it ranked #3 FBO in the Americas, and #1 FBO in small markets. By purchasing its competition in 2014, The Jay Odom Group added another 5,500 square-foot FBO and a 12,000 square-foot maintenance hangar to Destin Jet. The Jay Odom Group’s success in the Aviation Industry was achieved because the Destin Jet business model was based on operating as a hospitality business, rather than an aircraft business.

Grayton Grand Hotel & Resort
The Jay Odom Group purchased this 7.35-acre site along the 30A corridor of the Beaches of South Walton County in popular Grayton Beach and worked extensively with Walton County and the local community to secure all the required entitlements to develop a 153-unit hotel on the property. The Jay Odom Group developed full architectural and construction plans for The Grayton Grand Hotel and Resort for maximum use of this site as a second-to-none luxury resort. The plans were developed for 75 hotel units and 78 condominiums with world-class amenities. This property was to be built and operated as a hotel resort with the option of condominium sales in this exclusive, high-demand community. As The Jay Odom Group was moving to secure financing (with high interest from several national hotel brands), Walton County approached The Jay Odom Group and made an offer to purchase this site at market rate (based on the existing entitlements and plans developed) so they could secure land in this increasingly populated area of the County. The Jay Odom Group accepted the County’s offer and sold the property to Walton County in September of 2016.
