In addition to this benefit, the resort will pay a percentage of all revenue to the Air Force designated exclusively to capital improvements to boost morale and welfare on Eglin Air Force Base. In advance of the percentage rent, Innisfree Hotels already has made a $1 million initial payment to the Air Force, which will be used to improve Eglin’s living quarters and recreational facilities. MacQueen says, “This has been one of the more gratifying aspects of this development.

“I grew up spending my summers in this area and always believed that the USAF had the best piece of property on the Gulf Coast. We were proud to be selected as the company to maximize its potential for the public while honoring those who have served our country.”
