232 Unit Apartment Complex
Hammock Bay welcomed an exciting new addition in 2019-2020, 232 luxury apartment residences. This upscale apartment community exhibits the best-of-the-best amenities, with access to all Hammock Bay Amenities. The Apartment clubhouse is like no other, featuring a resort-style zero-entry pool, poolside cabana, demonstration kitchen, game room, state-of-the-art fitness, and more. A mail center with state-of-the-art refrigerated lockers for grocery delivery. Apartment residents love the green spaces, dog care amenities, EV charging station, amply sized garages, and the peace and quiet of Hammock Bay. Geared toward entertainment, convenience, top-of-the-line amenities, and the beautiful setting of Hammock Bay, the apartments leased faster than all projected proforma. The Jay Odom Group sold the entire apartment complex and the adjacent land for a 168-unit phase 2 in 2021.

The Destiny community, comprised of Destiny, Destiny Shores, Destiny By The Sea, Destiny East, Grand Palms at Destiny, and the Beach Villas at Destiny, became one of the most sought-after, premier developments in Destin and the surrounding area. This prompted The Jay Odom Group to create Destiny Realty for buying and selling real estate within the Destiny neighborhoods. The Destiny developments were all handled in-house by Destiny Realty.
When creating the Destiny Master Plan, Scenic Hwy 98 in Destin ran in such close proximity to the beach, it impeded master-planned development. The Jay Odom Group successfully relocated Scenic Hwy 98 to create the 120-lot Gulf front neighborhood of Destiny By The Sea, which included a pedestrian and golf cart tunnel for safe and easy access across the relocated highway to and from the beach.
