This Junonia's orange beach condos contains three lower level floors employed for common parking and areas. The ground floor will feature an outdoor/indoor swimming pool. With 17 condo units sold, by Thursday, that is enough to move forward. Closing is confirmed at the end-of June after which all of the plans is likely to be officially presented towards the Gulf Shores real estate planning board for acceptance.
