“Lake Nona Medical City”
A while back I mentioned how Brazilian companies, entrepreneurs and visitors specially, were the most notable contributors to Florida’s economy. The Orlando region continues to benefit by the millions of Brazilians coming to Orlando not only to shop, but to enjoy the entertainment capital of the world, experience a great quality of life and invest in viable business opportunities.
The Metro Orlando region is proud to continue welcoming Brazilians interested in the best opportunities to invest both in businesses, joint ventures and of course in real estate. Talking about real estate, I would like to update you on the latest happenings at Lake Nona, better known as the Medical City, but Lake Nona is much more than a Medical City.
Lake Nona Update
Housing sales and construction have been on record pace at Lake Nona for well over a year now. The community recorded over 320 new contracts and over $100 million in sales since the beginning of 2013. Those sales totals make Lake Nona the best-selling community in the Orlando region, and the 14th best-selling community in the United States. Lake Nona’s newest community, Laureate Park, will open its multi-million dollar aquatic Center later this summer. Lake Nona also opened its 378-unit Water mark apartments, with residents already moving in during this summer.
The first phase of the Lake Nona Town Center is projected to commence construction by the end of this year. This phase includes a 200-room hotel, 70,000 square feet of office space and three restaurants. The project will open during the first quarter of 2015. The Lake Nona Gateway Building, a 70,000 square foot medical office building, will commence construction in a couple of months. Florida hospital will be the principal tenant, along with University of Central Florida’s Pegasus health. The Lake Nona Gateway Building will open next year.
Sanford Burnham medical institute recently announced a new collaboration with Pfizer inc. to identify new therapeutic targets for preventing and treating obesity and diabetes. The collaboration will allow them to translate innovative science into potential new medicines.
Construction continues at the Orlando Veterans affairs medical Center, with portions of the center opening before the end of the present year and the majority of the hospital will open in 2014, and will treat thousands of patients each day.
