The City Commission of the City of Panama City has received an unsolicited proposal from the St. Joe Company to construct a hotel on the City’s downtown marina property.
In a letter to Mayor Greg Brudnicki and the City Commissioners, St. Joe’s President and Chief Executive Officer Jorge Gonzalez explains the hotel would be no more than five (5) stories in height and have a lounge and restaurant open for all meal periods. It would also be consistent with the existing character of downtown Panama City.
Gonzalez also explains the company’s intention is to fund, construct, own, and operate the hotel and restaurant on the City’s property without requesting financial assistance from the City.
