Tavistock Development Company is redefining Lake Nona by being the face of their latest and largest projects. An innovative community, Lake Nona is always looking for the next big investment. Whether that be a food hall made of repurposed shipping containers or an inflatable water park featuring climbing towers and cable systems, Lake Nona specializes in unique and fulfilling experiences for all ages. Beyond that, they strive for inclusivity and sustainability in both transportation and entertainment.
Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas, opening slated for 2020, calls for a grandiose movie-going experience. With recliner seating and a full dinner menu and bar, the theater will span 40,000 square feet and feature nine screens. Traditional menu items such as Nathan’s hot dogs and Icee drinks will allow attendees to feel nostalgic, but lavish starters and cocktails add a level of refinement. Furthermore, Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas allows guests the option to rent the space in order to host corporate events, parties and presentations. Events such as these will include a gourmet menu and stylized rooms. The cinema is part of the second phase of Tavistock Development Company ever-expanding Lake Nona Town Center and will include a bowling alley.
The Pixon Apartments, opened earlier this year, are an 11-story empire with a rideshare program featuring Tesla’s Model 3s. The housing options include studios, one and two bedroom homes, as well as three bedroom penthouses. The one bedroom studio micro-apartments are the first of their kind in Orlando. This complex is modernizing hospitality through the latest technology, including computer stations and virtual gaming lounge, and their sleek architecture, including large custom closets, high windows and stainless steel inclusions.
XL Soccer World is opening the second 50,000 square-foot soccer complex in Orlando within months. The first has both turf and grass fields made with weather withstanding materials. The outdoor section includes both 9v9 and 6v6 fields while the indoor section has 6v6 fields. Presumably, the new addition will have a similar foundation. Leagues of all ages are welcome to participate in either fun or competition in the stadium-lit arenas. To cool down, a soccer themed pub is included in the design that will air sports events.
The Tavistock Lake Nona Resort, with one of the largest man-made lagoons spanning at 15-acres and lined with sand beaches, is set to open in 2022 to improve the mind, body and spirit. This eight-story resort will have a destination spa as well as a fitness facility and expansive volleyball venue. By way of 250 rooms and 80 condos, there is simultaneously comfort and closeness. What differentiates this resort from the average hotel is how its rooms are designed to accommodate those who are recovering from exertion and its events are tailored towards education. For example, the mattresses are specially made, and there will be blackout curtains. With 20,000 square feet of meeting space, classes are offered so guests leave with more knowledge than they entered with.
The Tavistock Town Center Hotel is set to open in 2020. This hotel will join sophistication and leisure in a loving marriage. With health and technology at the forefront of Lake Nona’s infrastructure, guests will be provided with a number of experiences by way of the partnership the Tavistock shares with Technogym. With 231 guestrooms which include 17 suites, the space will include wellness and sleeping features similar to those featured in the Lake Nona Resort. This hotel will act as the center of the Town Hall Center and will be represented accordingly.
Lake Nona will introduce the first autonomous vehicles to Central Florida. The vehicles will hold up to 15 people with a steady speed of 16mph. Beep, a Lake Nona company, will operate the AUTONOM shuttles by NAVYA as part of the Move Nona transportation strategy. Move Nona will create a network with multiple ways of travel. The AUTONOM shuttles will gladly join their place alongside Tesla rideshare programs and EV charging stations. With traffic becoming an epidemic, this is a step towards alleviating roadside tension.
Lake Nona is creating new forms of shopping. From sports to hotels, they make sure you can’t get the same level of extravagance anywhere else.
