Since 2014, Bahama-based developer Tavistock Group has been building a sports and performance facility in Lake Nona that is unlike any other found throughout the country. Professional sports such as tennis, golf and soccer already reside in the Lake Nona area, however looks like volleyball, rugby, aquatics and sports medicine will call this place home.
Lake Nona boasts a medical district alongside a sports and performance center. This area will create a healthy residential community that includes a school with a YMCA. Wellness is very much a lifestyle in this area, so much so, that 30 percent of Lake Nona residents participated in an epidemiological study to track how they live in such a community.
The ingredients to create such a massive development are not that easy. You have to have a world-class airport, which Orlando’s International Airport – about 17 miles away is under construction to try to nearly double their capacity by 2020. You need to have a good transportation infrastructure to get to the facility – which thanks to all the tourism that Orlando attracts, highways are interconnected to get to where you have to be quickly. You’ll need great schools for the children that are a part of the athlete’s lives in order to convince their whole family that Lake Nona is a great option. As well as good housing options in which Lennar Orlando currently builds in the very popular community of Oaks at Moss Park and their solar and smart homes in Storey Park community.
Jim Gray, commissioner for Orlando moved to Lake Nona 12 years ago. At the time, the city had roughly 300 residents, within a couple of years it is projected that this area will have 100,000 people living and working in Lake Nona.
If you’re considering Lake Nona to be your home, now is the time to make your decision. With all the new developments coming along, the excitement of new sports facilities and the overall location and wellness of Lake Nona, this area will soon be a popular destination for families to settle into their new homes.
