More Area Development Plans Revealed

Atlanta Falcon linebacker Keith Brookings and former Atlanta Braves Pitcher John Rocker have just gotten plans approved to develop vacant land near U.S. Highway 90 in Crestview.

Their Company, Southern Boys Investment Group, is planning to put town homes and apartments on the 64-acre Okaloosa County parcel.

This isn’t the first northwest Florida development for Rocker and Brookings. Back in March they purchased a large tract of vacant land at Laurie Ave and Front Beach Road at Panama City Beach. The sale price was a reported six and a half million dollars.

They plan to build apartments and townhouses on the property. The unit prices start in the low $200,000 range according to signs posted on the property. There’s no word yet on when construction will begin locally.

The Crestview project is slated for next year.
