Welcome to Lake Nona If you want to see what the future is going to look like — if we’re lucky, that is — head to southeast Orlando and check out Lake Nona. Orlando’s fastest growing community with more than 16,000 residents, Lake Nona is a 17-square-mile, master-planned community that’s home to a wide variety of unique, desirable and walkable neighborhoods. From apartment homes — including the Orlando market’s first micro-units — to colorful townhomes, modern active-adult condos, sustainable single-family homes and sprawling estate homes, there’s truly something for everyone. Lake Nona is designed to foster wellbeing and promote activity, sustainability, social connection and learning. Recognized by the Global Wellness Institute as “the most sophisticated example in the world of what master-planning for wellness can accomplish,” Lake Nona was built from the ground up with a commitment to the health of its residents. It’s an intergenerational, family-friendly ecosystem with 40 percent green space, parks on every corner, pools in every neighborhood, dedicated cycling lanes and more than 44 miles of trails. Autonomous vehicles traverse its streets. This neo-urban environment inspires institutions, people and businesses to thrive. To that end, Lake Nona is education obsessed. A collaborative learning environment is designed to give students the ability to engage in real-time interactions with researchers, doctors, professors and businesses within the community. Top-rated schools, from early childhood to the graduate level, serve more than 14,000 students. In addition, Lake Nona was the first gigabit community in Florida, offering residents lightning-fast internet speeds up to 200 times faster than the U.S. average. Home to Medical City, diverse workspaces, recreational facilities and a thriving Town Center, Lake Nona is an inspired vision brought to life by Tavistock Development Co., an award-winning, diversified real-estate firm owned by Tavistock Group.

ON THE COVER: Lake Nona is filled with public art, such as this statue, Labrador, which welcomes visitors to the Town Center. The 35-foot, 3,100-pound stainless steel canine was created by artist JEFRË, a Lake Nona resident. Its reflective surface was inspired by shimmering water in the community’s namesake lake.

The Lake Nona Golf and Country Club is spectacular from ground level, but even more impressive from the air. Still, the Lake Nona master-planned community isn’t only for the country club set. Elizabeth Diaz (below left), an executive with the United States Tennis Association, wanted to live near her workplace and to have a safe environment for her three children. She was thrilled to find that “everything I do happens within a two- to fourmile radius” of her home in Laureate Park. It’s that secure sense of community that attracted Katie Wu and her family (below right), to Laureate Park, Lake Nona’s hottest-selling community. The family moved there in 2016, when Katie’s husband, Rayn, was transferred to Orlando.

ome to more than a dozen residential communities, Lake Nona offers something for everyone — from new homes to apartments to assisted-living facilities. And everyone, it seems, is finding the master-planned community. While the COVID-19 pandemic impacted sales in many communities, Lake Nona enjoyed its best month just as the state had begun its reopening process earlier this summer. There were 65 sales in May, the most recent month for which figures are available, beating the previous monthly record of 61. That’s certainly a tribute to Lake Nona’s draw during a time of economic and health uncertainty. Regardless of the circumstances — through booms as well as recessions and pandemics — more than 6,000 homes have been built within the community’s borders. In fact, Lake Nona’s focus on health and wellbeing may have become an even more appealing draw for buyers. Its variety of neighborhoods are near a growing cluster of businesses in the Lake Nona Town Center and the burgeoning, 650-acre Medical City life sciences hub. But health scares come and (hopefully) go. Rob Adams, vice president of residential development for Lake Nona developer Tavistock Development Company, says it’s all about planning. Lake Nona, like the best master-planned communities, offers a cohesive sense of place with varying home styles and recreational opportunities relatively close together. Plus, many residents work in the various life sciences facilities within the community.

sales. Among the offerings are single-family homes, townhomes, cottages and urban bungalows situated among pocket parks, miles of trails, a Village Center, a waterfront restaurant, an event venue, a state-of-the-art fitness facility and a resortstyle aquatic facility. “People are able to see in a master plan that there’s some stability,” Adams says. “Uncertainty attracts you toward places like a master-planned community.” Sales were further bolstered by a new neighborhood: Isles of Lake Nona. Sales for the mixed single-family home and townhome development, built by Atlanta-based PulteGroup began in April and — despite the pandemic — has accounted for 25 sales as of press time, Adams reports. Meantime, Somerset Park and Somerset Crossings had a record 48 sales in 2019, and the Enclave at VillageWalk had a strong year with 40 sales. And volume within the Lake Nona Golf and Country Club totaled more than $46 million, making it a banner year for residential real estate in the exclusive community that many sports celebrities call home. Regarded as one of the top private golf and country clubs in the world, the neighboorhood is a sanctuary of luxury real estate and amenities, featuring a Tom Fazio-designed championship golf course as well as a clubhouse, a lodge, year-round children’s programming and 24-hour gated security. Indeed, the coronavirus seems to have enhanced interest in master-planned communities across the board, according to RCLCO, a real estate consultant with an office in Baldwin Park. Many such developments across the country reported higher sales in April and May of 2020 — during the peak of the pandemic 2 0 2 0


New-home opportunities in Lake Nona are abundant. Here are two examples: The Anderson model (top and bottom left) by Ashton Woods Homes is priced from $473,990, and encompasses 2,525 to 3,465 square feet with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, one half-bath and a two-car garage. Craft Homes is offering the Tailor townhome (top and bottom right), which encompasses 2,059 square feet, three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a two-car garage. It’s priced from the low $350s.

— than the same period in 2019, the company reports. Lake Nona, for one, notched 267 sales between January and May throughout its neighborhoods. That’s a 40 percent increase over the first five months of 2019. However, a heightened sense of security and stability explains some, but not all, of the community’s success. There’s much more to the story. Lake Nona, defined by cutting-edge technology, offers its residents fiber-optic lines that deliver gigabit-capacity internet, plus a commitment to reducing energy, emissions and water usage in every home. In 2019 Laureate Park welcomed Orlando’s Heroes Community Park. The park features a playground, four multiuse fields lighted for night activities and trailhead parking for the Orlando Southeast Trail. Here’s a look at the neighborhoods within Lake Nona. n Enclave at VillageWalk features Mediterranean-inspired homes with barrel-tile roofs and spiral oak staircases. Homes are built on large lots and offer open gathering areas perfect for entertaining. They also boast added storage and spacious 10-foot ceilings. n Gatherings of Lake Nona, built by Beazer Homes, is a 55-plus community adjacent to the VA Medical Center. It offers 216 condominiums, and residents enjoy a variety of amenities. n The Isles of Lake Nona, built by PulteGroup, offers

single-family homes and townhomes nestled among a large network of ponds. More than 500 homes are planned, and the neighborhood will feature a clubhouse, sports courts and a resort-style pool with a splash pad. n Lake Nona Golf and Country Club, one of the top private golf and country clubs in the world, is a sanctuary of luxury real estate and amenities nestled along the shores of Lake Nona. The community features a Tom Fazio-designed championship golf course, a 40,000-square-foot clubhouse with an 18-room guest lodge, a bath and racquet club with all-inclusive fitness and tennis facilities, a resort-style pool, year-round children’s programming, 24-hour gated security and outstanding water-based recreation on three lakes. n Lake Nona WaterMark is a luxury apartment complex anchored by a 7,515-square-foot clubhouse with a resort-style pool, a fireside veranda, an outdoor kitchen and a business center. It’s located near Lake Nona’s Sports and Performance District, which is anchored by the USTA National Campus. n Laureate Park is a vibrant, multibuilder neighborhood of brightly colored bungalows, townhomes, cottages and multistory homes decked out with state-of-the-art technology. The neighborhood sits alongside community gardens, an LP FIT fitness center, a resort-style aquatic center, an event venue, miles of trails, pocket parks and plenty of playgrounds. The Preserve at Laureate Park, a gated neighborhood, offers privacy as well as all those world-class amenities. S P E C I A L R E P O R T : L A K E N O N A   MC11


n Somerset Park is a gated neighborhood in the western portion of the community with stylish single-family, two-story offerings from Century Homes and M/I Homes. Located just minutes from Medical City, the neighborhood offers a wide variety of home styles and amenities that include a community pool and cabana, a playground and walking trails. n Somerset Crossings, located near Somerset Park, is a lowmaintenance townhome community by PulteGroup that features open-concept floorplans, one- and two-car garages, and amenities that include a pool, a cabana and a playground. n Somerby Assisted Living, formerly named Watercrest, is a senior-living community with apartments that feature high ceilings, spa showers, kitchenettes, and washers and dryers. It offers assisted living, memory care and respite care. The following neighborhoods are built out, but resale homes may be available: n VillageWalk blends resort-style homes with a unique design for the neighborhood, which features a neighborhood center connected by bridges and canals leading to lighted walking trails, swimming pools, parks, sport courts and conveniences such as a café, a salon, a post office, a bank, a gas station and a fitness center. n NorthLake Park is home to single-family and multifamily homes and stylish apartments. This expansive neighborhood features the A-rated NorthLake Park Elementary school and YMCA, an Olympic pool, sport courts and fields and a dog park. In 2020, the city of Orlando opened its McCoy Commu-

nity Park near the neighborhood. The 25-acre park features four baseball/softball fields with spectator bleachers, scoreboards and lighting for night games. Upscale apartments are also popular in Lake Nona. Ariel Apartments, located in the western portion of the community, features one-, two- and three-bedroom units designed for energy efficiency. Residents can access 1GB high-speed internet and a 24-hour fitness club featuring Technogym equipment and virtual classes. It’s even pet friendly and includes a dog park, a pet-washing station and a canine agility course. Pixon and LandonHouse apartments are in the community’s Town Center for those who want to be where the action is. At LandonHouse Apartments, residents can rent one-, twoor three-bedroom apartments as well as open studio spaces for true urban living. All 279 apartments are accented by 10-foot ceilings and great views of the quickly expanding Town Center and Medical City. At Pixon, a 200-unit modern flat community, features an impressive roster of innovative community conveniences that include a car-share program featuring Tesla vehicles and a concierge delivery system. It also offers 32,500 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, where you’ll find such businesses as Foxtail Coffee Co., Rukus Cycling, Club Pilates and Island Fin Poke Co. Pixon includes the region’s first micro-units, which are just under 400 square feet.

Cardel Homes joins Lake Nona builders Cardel Homes will begin later this summer on six new one- and twostory floorplans with options that include the ability to expand to a three-car garage, add a garage apartment, include a pool and more. Prices for the homes, slated for completion early next year, will begin in the $400s. Cardel Homes Design Center allows buyers to select from a wide range of leading brands in flooring, cabinets, lighting, appliances and other interior finishes to fit their taste and budget. “Cardel Homes is ecstatic to be joining one of the top 10 homebuilding markets in the country,” says Brian Phillips, vice president of sales and marketing for Cardel Homes Florida. “The Orlando market is slated for ongoing growth and our team is committed to delivering quality homes — just as we have in Tampa for over 20 years.” Cardel Homes, which has been in operation for more than 45 years, is an international builder with divisions in Calgary, Ottawa, Denver and Southwest Florida. The company is highly selective about the communities in which it participates. For more information on Cardel Homes, visit cardelhomes.com or follow the company on Facebook.

Buyers are finding lots to love about the Lake Nona area IT’ S BO O MIN G IN O RA N GE, OSCE OLA COU N TI E S.

T

he Lake Nona area is more than just the master-planned community. Sparked in large part by the 17-square-mile development, growth in southeast Orange County and north Osceola County has exploded in recent years and shows no sign of slowing. Narcoossee Road, once a rural strip of asphalt snaking its way from U.S. Highway 192 in Osceola into southeast Orlando, is now a major thoroughfare lined with newhome developments and all manner of commerce. It seems that almost every business, school and neighborhood has the words “Lake Nona” in their names. “In less than 20 years, the Lake Nona area has transformed from a mostly rural and inaccessible region to a vibrant and modern community,” says Orange County Commissioner Maribel Gomez Cordero, whose District 4 includes Lake Nona. “It rivals downtown Orlando in terms of amenities and convenience.” Continues Cordero: “The ideas developed in this area have proven to be successful — and it has helped Lake Nona become a great place to live and work.” It was inevitable that such growth, while starting in Orange County, would avalanche into adjacent Osceola County. In fact, the company behind Lake Nona is playing a key role in driving that development. Tavistock Development Company plans to follow its Lake Nona success with an even bigger master-planned community: Sunbridge. With a range of neighborhoods, employment centers and commercial districts built around more than 13,000 acres of conservation land, the 24,000-acre development will be attractive to companies and residents who want to be near Lake Nona proper while enjoying Florida’s natural landscape, according to Tavistock. Drawn up in two sections, Sunbridge sits on nearly 5,000 acres east of Lake Nona in Orange County and on nearly 19,000 acres in northwest Osceola County. Plans call for a road to

eventually connect the two. Homebuilder Del Webb will provide the first residential neighborhood in Sunbridge. It’s currently selling new homes in a gated 55-plus community in Osceola called Del Webb Sunbridge, which offers single-family homes priced starting in the

mid-$200s with two to five bedrooms. Plans call for more than 1,300 single-family homes and attached villas, ranging in size from 1,543 to 3,452 square feet. At press time, there were six model homes open at the site.

From hotels to healthcare facilities to corporate headquarters, it’s all here LAK E NONA’S GOT A MEDI CAL CI TY. BU T TH AT N OT’S A L L .

ne of the fastest-growing master-planned communities in the U.S., Lake Nona — which is being developed by Tavistock Development Company in south Orlando — is a 17-square-mile community recognized for its thoughtfully designed neighborhoods, top-rated education facilities, leading-edge business and research clusters, and diverse retail and entertainment centers. Bisected by S.R. 417, Lake Nona sits southeast of the Orlando International Airport and just north of Osceola County. While thousands of residents call Lake Nona home, there also are many nonresidential projects in the community — and many more on the way.

TOWN CENTER At the intersection of Lake Nona Boulevard and Tavistock Lakes Boulevard, the Lake Nona Town Center encompasses hotels, offices, restaurants and apartment buildings. Plans call for the open-air, urban district to eventually contain 4 million square feet of entertainment, shopping and dining space. Newly opened Boxi Park Lake Nona is in the Town Center just south of S.R. 417 on Lake Nona Boulevard. Boxi Park offers a mix of restaurants and bars, beach volleyball courts and a live entertainment venue to create an outdoor entertainment destination built using 14 repurposed shipping containers arranged in oneand two-story configurations. Among the first of its kind on the East Coast, the 30,000-squarefoot district is family- and dog-friendly. Customers can find food and beverage options showcasing different cuisines, along with two full-service bars serving a selection of cocktails. A beer garden features its own craft beer line. Other dining options in the Town Center include Chroma Modern Bar + Kitchen, Park Pizza & Brewing Co., Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine, Island Fin Poke Co. and Foxtail Coffee Co., with more new options in the pipeline. Visitors have two hotel choices with Marriott: Courtyard for short-term guests and Residence Inn for long-term stays. The

Town Center buildings are adjacent and share a lobby. Each hotel offers more than 100 rooms and fitness centers. Both include Stay Well rooms with amenities such as aromatherapy, circadian mood lighting, water-filtering systems, memory foam mattresses built from plant extracts, air-purification systems and vitamin C-infused showers. The Residence Inn also features rooms with separate bedrooms and living areas, fully functioning kitchens and grocery delivery service.

UNITED STATES TENNIS ASSOCIATION NATIONAL CAMPUS The largest tennis facility in the country, the USTA National Campus features 100 courts and innovative developmental programs that make it a training destination for professional, collegiate and amateur players. Home to thousands of training players and teams and to hundreds of tournaments each year, the 64-acre campus is open to the public and serves all levels of play for all ages. The campus

Laureate Park is one of the most technologically advanced neighborhoods in the U.S. But many of the homes have an Old Florida vibe — and it’s difficult to get more down-to-earth than the community gardens, where residents become weekend farmers.

has hosted 675,000 visitors and attendees since opening in 2017. Current and former professionals who have visited, trained, coached and played at the facility include James Blake, CiCi Bellie, the Bryan Brothers, Jim Courier, Chris Evert, Ivan Lendl, Bethanie Mattek-Sands, Madison Keys, Billie Jean King, Jack Sock, Frances Tiafoe and David Young. The facility was selected as the host site of the NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships in 2019 and 2021, as well as the NCAA Division III Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships in 2022.

NONA ADVENTURE PARK On Adventure Lake adjacent to the City of Orlando’s Heroes Community Park, the Nona Adventure Park is a new watersports park that features a two-track Rixen Cable System for waterskiers and wakeboarders. It also offers an inflatable aqua park with a series of floating pathways, climbing obstacles, slides and trampolines. There’s a 60-foot climbing tower with a ropes course and climbing walls and a pro shop — and the Wi-Fi-enabled main entrance houses an upscale café with food and beverages and a dry seating area for spectators.

MEDICAL CITY Lake Nona’s health and life sciences cluster, also known as Medical City, is home to top medical and research facilities, including the University of Central Florida Health Sciences Campus and the Lake Nona Cancer Center as well as Nemours Children’s Hospital, the University of Florida Research & Academic Center and the Orlando Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Together they provide a unique collection of medical care, research and education. So, let’s have a look at what, exactly, Medical City encompasses. The UCF Health Sciences campus includes several facilities. Established in 2006, the UCF College of Medicine is one of the first U.S. medical schools in decades to be built from the ground up. Included is a 170,000-square-foot medical education facility, featuring the latest in lab and classroom technology, as well as

the 198,000-square-foot Burnett Biomedical Sciences building. The college is unique nationally because of large undergraduate and graduate programs in biomedicine through the Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences. The Burnett School has almost 3,000 undergraduate majors — making it the third most popular major at UCF. Cancer patients soon will benefit from a one-stop research and treatment center through the new UCF Lake Nona Cancer Center. The repurposed facility will become a comprehensive cancer research and treatment center housing cancer researchers, clinical trials and treatment for patients. In addition, the UCF Lake Nona Medical Center, a partnership hospital between HCA Healthcare’s North Florida Division and UCF Academic Health, is scheduled to open early next year. The $175 million, 100-bed teaching hospital will provide healing for patients throughout Central Florida and beyond. It will also educate healthcare providers of the future and support the work of brilliant medical researchers that will lead to

To make seeing it all even easier, Lake Nona has a small fleet of fully electric, driverless shuttles (bottom) that operate daily on a fixed route connecting the Lake Nona Town Center with the neighborhood Village Center in Laureate Park. Each shuttle holds up to 10 passengers and operates at a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour.

KPMG LAKEHOUSE Big Four professional services firm KPMG selected Lake Nona for its national training center from a competitive field of 50 prospective cities nationwide. The high-tech, $450 million campus opened in early 2020 and focuses on enhancing the skills and services of KPMG professionals through immersive training in cutting-edge classroom and field environments. About 50,000 employees worldwide will train each year in various accounting disciplines. The 55-acre campus includes 800,000 square feet of facilities for meeting, classrooms and dining. An expected 330 new jobs will be created through the center over the next three years.

AUTONOMOUS TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM Lake Nona has a small fleet of fully electric, driverless shuttles in service that operate daily on a fixed route connecting the Lake Nona Town Center with the neighborhood Village Center in Laureate Park. Each shuttle holds up to 10 passengers and operate at a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour. The shuttles operate daily, and there are plans to increase their number and expand the route network in the future. The vehicles are operated by a Lake Nona-based mobility company called Beep and manufactured by a French company called NAVYA. They use multisensor technology to interact in real time with their surroundings. Although the shuttles are driverless, they’ll always have an attendant on board who’s trained to manually override the vehicle if needed. Currently, there’s no charge to ride.

Stay tuned: There’s lots more to come LAKE NONA IS IN CONSTANT MOTION, WITH MAJOR PROJECTS ON THEIR WAY.
