Can you imagine living in a community where you can lock your home doors with your smartphone? Sharing a 3D printer to develop your own tools? These are some of the amenities that are about to come in the Pixon project. It’s gonna be Orlando’s first micro apartments units.
In 2017 Tavistock Development announced a partnership that will make these and other facilities possible. Intersection is a sister company of Google that provides solutions for smart cities. Their solutions will be applied in Lake Nona Town Center, the retail and entertainment heart of the community. Most importantly, there will be improvements in many areas: retail and improvements in parking, traffic flow and wayfinding.
Roberta Fenessy, an instructor of urban and regional planning at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, has always lived in the city and has been watching the development of Lake Nona. She says that her hometown has much more to offer than parks. “Lake Nona has helped diversify the impressions and ideas of what Orlando is as a city, as well as our economy. It’s really shown the world another side of what we do here in Central Florida”, she said when interviewed by Worth website.
