BY: BAYFRONT WESTCOTT HOUSE
We are excited here at Bayfront Westcott House to finally see some progress being made on this waterfront restaurant. It is located across the street from us. The Santa Maria building has been decaying over the Matanzas River south of the Bridge of Lions since the restaurant closed in 2015, the year the White family bought the property. Members of the White family also own O.C. White’s restaurant, which is about a block away on the bayfront. Jennifer White, part of the project team, said “We are very excited to start on this project, as it’s been a long time coming. Once we have the building permit, we anticipate a year and a half before we open as long as the weather does not postpone anything.” Stay tuned and we will provide updates and pictures as progress is being made.
