An affiliate of Tavistock Development Company is preparing to subdivide more property for commercial development at a key intersection directly south of Orlando International Airport.
Located on the southwest corner of Lake Nona Boulevard and Boggy Creek Road, the 8.63-acre property would serve as additional frontage at the intersection for more than 116 acres owned by Tavistock affiliates that lie south of the Central Florida Greeneway (S.R. 417), and make up the Greeneway Park PD/DRI.
Tavistock filed a Preliminary Subdivision Plan (PSP) on Thursday with Orange County to turn the 8.63 acres into four lots that range from 2.52 to 0.88 acres, and construct on-sitestormwater retention (0.92 acres) and associated roads and utility infrastructure.
It follows plans filed in January for 12.09 acres directly northwest of the intersection, which call for 63,000 square feet of retail at what is now dubbed "Lake Nona Creekside," to include a 47,000-square-foot Publix with drive-thru pharmacy, a row of inline retail spaces, four outparcels and a hotel site for future development.
A Tavistock spokeswoman said Thursday no details on a development time line or tenants were available for the 8.63-acre site.
The company remains on track for a Fall 2018 opening of Publix at the Lake Nona Creekside project, she added. Tavistock filed a notice of commencement in mid-July with Elite Site Development for mass grading and retaining wall construction.
Growth is picking up in Lake Nona's southwest area surrounding the southern entrance of the airport, with Amazon's fulfillment center now under construction, the nearby Ariel Apartments which opened in August, and plans for another two speculative office buildings next to Voxx International's headquarters.
The new Lake Nona Creekside retail and these future subdivided lots would serve residents of Lennar's Wyndham Lakes community that's still under construction a few miles to the west, Somerset Park to the west, and future growth of Lake Nona's Laureate Park to the east.
