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.
