Tavistock Development Company wants to add some zoning flexibility to 18 acres directly west of its Lake Nona Landing retail power center, allowing for a warehouse developer that may be drawn to locating behind multiple big box stores.

Tavistock filed a request with the City of Orlando to modify permitted uses within the Education Village PD zoning to allow for warehouses, telling the city a "specific user" has approached the company for a potential development.

Developer builds assemblage in SE Lake Nona, plans neighborhood retail center

Early insight on a South Florida developer's entry plan to the Orlando market, and who he'll be working with locally to develop 9-plus acres.

The interest is in Parcel G within the PD, about 18 acres directly behind the Walmart and Sam's Club. Those two stores anchor the 52-acre Lake Nona Landing along Narcoossee Road, just south of S.R. 417. The development has approximately 596,000 square feet of retail and restaurants in varied stages of development.

Existing infrastructure provides for truck traffic access directly from the Parcel G to a signalized intersection at Tagore Place and Narcoosee Road.

The configuration of the parcels for Lake Nona Landing provides an opportunity for a warehouse on Parcel G, as it is set back from the roadway and would be buffered from most vehicular traffic, Tavistock wrote to city staff.

A company spokeswoman told GrowthSpotter there is no particular warehouse tenant to name at this time, and no specific building plans or specifications to cite.

An update on the tenant lineup for this neighborhood shopping development, and opportunity ahead for an architect and general contractor.

If developed as industrial in the future, this would be the second Lake Nona-area parcel owned by a Tavistock affiliate to draw warehouse interest this year, following Seefried Industrial's plans for 130 acres south of Orlando International Airport for an Amazon fulfillment center, first reported here on April 3 and April 24.
