The Truman Annex is truly a distinct and extremely desirable area to live in Old Town Key West. The area was once a military installation for Naval Station Key West. It's also the site of President Harry S. Truman's "Little White House", where he stayed for over 175 days during 11 visits during his presidency.
This award winning, mixed use redevelopment sits on 45 acres in the heart of the Key West historic district. In 1986 Pritam Singh purchased the property from the GSA for a bid of $17 million and began the redevelopment initiative considered to be one of the most successful highly regulated and permitted real estate projects in Florida history. The Singh Company became one of the first private entities in the State of Florida to receive a formal development agreement under the State’s Development of Regional Impact legislation.
This complex redevelopment project of over 800,000 square feet was completed in 1996 with 425 classic conch style, single family homes, high end condominiums, a hotel, affordable housing, parks, marina, retail, commercial and museums. The community includes several designated National Register properties and most significantly the Little White House, the former vacation home of President Harry Truman which is now a historic house museum.
The Truman Annex is one of the most lauded and awarded projects in US development history. Awards won include the 1994 Florida Design Arts Award from the Florida Arts Council among others.
