Not Your Ordinary Joe

The St. Joe Company and Florida’s Great Northwest

Tim Chapin

Setembro 2007, inglês

This paper documents the impact of the St. Joe Company’s growing real estate development portfolio on the Florida panhandle. It details the real estate market impacts of St. Joe (which have proven to be significant) and the concurrent community/economic development efforts undertaken by St. Joe to win community support for their projects (which have been substantial). The paper also discusses the political environment in the panhandle, in which small, low capacity governments have had to process huge development proposals by St. Joe. Lastly, it details the role of new regional planning processes in remaking the panhandle.
