Santa Rosa Beach, Florida
Evocative of full-service drive-in theaters of the 1950s, minus the cars, The Hub is a festival-style gathering place featuring restaurants, entertainment and shopping. Located on the iconic 30A highway, The Hub appeals to locals and families vacationing along the Gulf Coast. The master plan for the 3-acre site developed collaboratively by Lew Oliver and DAG combines a variety of small retail spaces with larger restaurant spaces anchoring each corner of the development. An event lawn provides seating for outdoor concerts and movies, and the centrally located Pavilion features a multipurpose stage, a 25-foot-wide outdoor movie screen, and a screened porch with a fireplace and big screen TV’s.
