The plans are drawn up and the permits are applied for; soon Pier Park will see some brand new developments.

Dave and Busters, the popular bar and game venue out of Dallas, is coming to Pier Park South.

The Panama City Beach planning department unrolled the plans for the first time with News 13, Monday.

The site will be the current "Book It Beach location across the circle from the grand theatre.

It's not the only new plans coming in.

Across the street, Pier Park North is getting a Joes Crab Shack restaurant.

Both translate into jobs for the area; through the business themselves and the construction work that comes from building.

These plans will now go in for final tweaking and approval, but PCB Building Official Ken Thorndike, said there's no turning back now.

"They are finally serious about it. When they start submitting plans, I hear lots of "we're coming to do this or we're going to come do that," but when I get the plans in hand, then I know that they've spent some time and money just on the plans, so they are serious about continuing on," said Thorndyke.

Rooms-To-Go, Dick's Sporting Goods and Ross are also expected businesses that will move into the Pier Park North location, opening spring 2014
