New World Landing is a complex located at 600 South Palafox Street that includes several meeting rooms and an inn. It was restored from a former box factory[1] in 1983 by Arden and Kay Anderson. In late 2006, 600 South of Pensacola, a partnership of Jim Homyak, Matt Balka and Julie Lawson, purchased the complex from then-owner Jim Bachus. They added a wine and martini bar, 600 South, in 2007 and a renovated courtyard for live music and events in 2008.[2]
