Lake Nona’s Futuristic Vision
Worth Magazine highlights Lake Nona’s forward-thinking community
Lake Nona’s forward-thinking community continues to draw national attention, and is highlighted as Orlando’s 2018 Destination in the latest edition of Worth Magazine.
The author, Helen Anne Travis, writes: “With its innovative take on combining top level healthcare, sports, technology and other amenities with residential planning, Lake Nona is offering a futuristic vision of how people should live—in a city better known for its tourists than its residents.”
“Lake Nona offers an incredibly high quality of life for its residents,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. “Developments like Lake Nona and Medical City attract national attention to Orlando and help raise awareness of Orlando as a great place to live and do business.”
Mayor Dyer, UCF Urban and Regional planning instructor Roberta Fennessy, Lake Nona resident Lindsay Thorn, and Tavistock Development Company leadership were interviewed and quoted in the article.
“I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t want to live in a community like this,” said Lindsay Thorn, Laureate Park homeowner.
Indeed, Lake Nona is one of the fastest-growing master-planned developments in the country and the fastest-growing in Orlando. Our 17-square-mile community makes up around 10 percent of Orlando’s land area, but between 2014 and 2016, accounted for 18 percent of its residential growth.
