Destin Commons, known as the premier open-air lifestyle center on Florida’s Emerald Coast, chose three colors of metal roofing were to enhance the high-end shopping center’s image as part of its overall expansion.


The major expansion of the Destin Commons shopping center in Destin, Fla., further establishes its reputation as the premier open air lifestyle center offering the best in shopping, dining and entertainment on Florida’s Emerald Coast. The Phase II expansion adds 100,000 sq. ft. to the 500,000-sq.-ft. family-oriented shopping environment. Destin Commons also includes 70,000 sq. ft. of Class A office suites. And the expansion included metal roofing; there were multiple buildings involved with various applications and complexities. Although Destin Commons is located less than one half mile from the Gulf in the corrosive saltwater environment, steel was selected for the project versus aluminum due to budget constraints.


The pedestrian-friendly retail complex looks more like a European village with its corner turrets, old-fashioned clock towers and fountains plazas.


Petersen’s PAC-CLAD roof panels were specified on the original Destin Commons development in 2003, and continue to be the roofing material of choice for the high-end development. The Phase II expansion is clad with more than 30,000 sq. ft. of Petersen’s Snap-Clad 24 gauge, 16-in. wide panels finished in three complementary colors—a Green, Slate Gray and Terra Cotta, all of which are PAC-CLAD Cool Colors.
