First Look: Boxi Park Lake NonaWednesday, September 05th 2018
Are you ready for it? Central Florida’s first shipping container park is coming to Lake Nona Town Center this December.
Boxi Park will be a dynamic outdoor district packed with fun for all ages. The 30,000 square-foot, family-friendly and dog-friendly outdoor district will include a mix of restaurants, bars, shops, beach volleyball courts, dog park, and playground.
Located in Lake Nona Town Center just south of SR 417 on Lake Nona Boulevard, Boxi Park will be among the first-of-its-kind on the East Coast integrating restaurants, an outdoor stage, and beach volleyball to create an open-air entertainment destination. The park’s design will create limitless opportunities to explore different food and beverage options throughout the space, with ample shaded seating, playground, and a fenced dog park. Boxi Park’s stage will host a variety of local performers with regular programming scheduled for weekdays and weekends. The park will also include beach volleyball courts open to the public.
Boxi Park will include curated food and beverage options showcasing different cuisines along with two full-service bars serving a selection of cocktails, wine and beer garden featuring its own craft beer line. Acting as an incubator for dining and retail, Boxi Park will feature a mix of original concepts and innovative partnerships. The park’s unique structure also allows for it to be moveable as Lake Nona Town Center expands.
Boxi Park will continue Lake Nona’s practice of incorporating community art into development projects using colorful flooring patterns with geometric shapes throughout the park and on the containers. Large, 60-foot Live Oak trees will help provide shade. The trees are part of a larger relocation initiative from Tavistock Development Company to preserve and move more than 100 trees from wetlands located on the southern border of Lake Nona.
Boxi Park is the latest addition to the 100-acre Lake Nona Town Center which already includes two award-winning hotels, Chroma Modern Bar + Kitchen, Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine, Jacq & Jack full-service salon and barbershop, an office building, LandonHouse apartment community, multi-level parking structure, and the flagship location of Drive Shack. In addition to Boxi Park, Town Center will also open Pixon, a modern apartment community, Park Pizza & Brewing Co., and the new BBA Aviation/Signature Flight Support headquarters by the end of 2018.
Complimentary parking for Boxi Park will be available in the adjacent surface lot or the five-story central parking structure featuring Lake Nona’s interactive landmarks, The Beacon and Code Wall.
