The proliferation of assisted living facilities in the Orlando area continues in Lake Nona, where a three-story elderly care complex is proposed for the burgeoning community.
Lake Nona Senior Housing LLC is behind the venture after buying a 10-acre vacant parcel on Savannah Park Drive for $1.75 million in May, records show. The principles of Lake Nona Senior Housing LLC, whose main address is 2200 Winter Springs Blvd., Oviedo, are James Grocock and David Babinski, according to records. Neither could be reached for comment.
Planned are an assisted living facilty and a memory care center to be called Stonegate at Lake Nona.
The project would contain a 129-room, 110,526-square-foot, assisted living complex and a 20-room, 12,064-square-foot, memory care center.
The layout would include three-story assisted living building wings with a central one-story commons building area. Close to 136 seniors are expected to occupy the assisted living facility building.
A gazebo, water features, walkways, a fire pit with surrounding seating, a butterfly garden area and a small park area are among amenities proposed as part of the assisted living facility. The small park area would be located across the site from a private access drive.
A great lawn area is initially planned for the area that will be occupied by the future memory care building.
Once complete, the complex would have 68 staff members with 24 full time for the assisted living and 44 full-time staff for administration, maintenance and dietary.
The facility would be located at 10298 Savannah Park Drive, north of Moss Park Road., east of Narcoossee Road and south of Savannah Park Drive.
A Master Plan approval is required for the project and it is expected to be considered by Orlando's municipal planning board when it meets on Jan. 19.
Florida Engineering Group of Orlando has drawn up the initial plans. It is not known if a general contractor has been chosen.
