Tavistock Development Company has filed plans with City of Orlando to increase the size of a new office building and a third parking garage at Lake Nona Town Center.
The master plan amendment applies to an 10-acre parcel on Lake Nona Boulevard, just west of Veterans Way. It’s immediately south of the Wellness Center and medical office building now under construction in the town center. A 4-story office building fronting on Lake Nona Boulevard is scheduled for completion this summer.
Under the latest master plan amendment, Tavistock would increase the office square footage from from 380,178 to 525,389 square feet by doubling the height of a proposed new office building to eight stories. The master plan also call for a future hotel with 103,389 square feet and about 5,300 square feet of future dining or retail space. The majority of the nearly 1,850 parking spaces would be accommodated through the development of a parking structure that is already under construction and slated for completion in November.
Tavistock spokeswoman Karlee Kunkle said the developer has not signed any leased tenants to Office Building C, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the company won’t break ground on the taller Building B.
“Building B is in permitting and will be built prior to any tenant announcement," Kunkle said. The parking garage will have a unique look with a 3D wave design element, she added.
The filing comes 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 southeast quadrant of 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.
In December Tavistock submitted plans for a third parking garage for the Town Center, which includes a new office building and the Wave Hotel, as well as multiple buildings still slated for future development.
Tavistock was recognized last week by NAIOP Central Florida for its Infinity Park, named Industrial Development of the Year, and for Boxi Park, which took home the award for Retail Development of the Year.
