About the Destin CRE Market
The city of Destin is in Okaloosa County, located in the northwestern portion of Florida, extending from the Gulf of Mexico to the Alabama state line. As of the 2010 census, the population was 180,822. Its county seat is Crestview. Okaloosa County, Florida, also identified as the Crestview-Fort Walton Beach-Destin MSA, may be best known for the sugar white sands and emerald green waters that draw millions of visitors each year. Yet the community is far more than just another pretty face. Eglin Air Force Base, the world’s largest Air Force installation, hosts the headquarters of the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC), the 96th Test Wing and the 33rd Fighter Wing (F-35 graduate flying and maintenance training wing) among others. With research and testing at the forefront of activities taking place at Eglin, numerous technology and defense contractors have located here – including renowned powerhouses Boeing, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin and L3 Communications. All benefit from a pro-business local government, award-winning public schools (including Florida’s first STEM-focused middle school), a myriad of post-secondary education options and a steady stream of young, technically astute military retirees.
