Tavistock Development Company has filed plans with City of Orlando for a 71,000-square-foot office building in Lake Nona Town Center.
Located at the intersection of Lake Nona Boulevard and Veterans Way, the 5-story building would be anchored by a bank tenant on the ground floor and would incorporate drive-thru lanes tucked under the structure of the building. The mixed-use building also allocates about 5,000 square feet on the ground floor for retail use, noted as a coffee shop on the building rendering.
The building would abut the Courtyard by Marriott and the developer’s Phase 2 office building, which was completed in 2018.
South Florida-based Callison RTKL designed the building to complement the town center’s architectural style, with a unique curved corner detail. The window wall is articulated with vertical fins that completes the modern theming known to Town Center. The structure will also be fitted with View Glass, which is a dynamic, “smart glass” window that reduces solar radiation, heat, and glare, which provides energy savings and eliminates the needs for shades or blinds.
Tavistock filed a Specific Parcel Master Plan with City of Orlando for consideration by the city’s Southeast Town Design Review Committee in June. This is the developer’s second major filing for a new office development in the last two months. Harris Civil is the project engineer.
Tavistock officials were not immediately available for comment.
In March, the company applied for a Master Plan amendment to increase the size and height of a proposed office building at the northwest corner of Lake Nona Boulevard and Veterans Way, directly across the street from the latest site.
The 8-story building, known as “Building B” in planning documents will be permitted and built before any tenant announcements, spokeswoman Karlee Kunkle said.
The filing came about a month after the developer updated its master plan to include a 95,263-square-foot office and training facility for SIMCOM Aviation Training on a 4.9-acre parcel in the town center. That facility will house a dozen advanced flight simulators and will contain an auditorium, classrooms, and meeting/conference rooms to provide highly advanced pilot and maintenance training, as well as specialty courses in upset recovery, crew resource management, high altitude, and avionics.
