The Walt Disney Company and Tavistock Development Company are in talks for new residential and commercial properties right here in Lake Nona. Tavistock looks to develop 4,192 residential units and 2.4 million square feet of non-residential space, which is where the location of these developments might fall.
Since Disney already has many residential communities in Orlando and the ever-growing Lake Nona area is only an 18-mile stretch from Walt Disney World, Lake Nona would make an opportune destination for these residential and commercial developments. New Lake Nona residents will be drawn to everything the nearby Disney parks have to offer, and for those Disney veterans in Lake Nona, we’ll be even more excited to have some Disney magic a little closer to home.
This deal between Tavistock and Disney is still in early stages and may not come to fruition. This will be a developing story.
