Two Initial Announced Properties Planned at Lake Nona
Tavistock Development Company, a diversified real estate firm owned by Joe Lewis’ international investment organization Tavistock Group, has launched the Tavistock Hotel Collection. It is a growing hospitality portfolio which will include the Tavistock Lake Nona Resort and the Tavistock Town Center Hotel in Orlando, Florida.
Tavistock Hotel Collection properties will focus on exceptional services and delivering one-of-a-kind experiences. The Tavistock brand of hotels will consistently offer guests bespoke brand standards, from integrated technology that seamlessly connects and common areas that are created to socially engage, to the thoughtful and elegant design of each guest room.
Tavistock Hotel Collection’s inaugural properties are located within Tavistock’s innovative, master-planned Lake Nona community in the City of Orlando. Lake Nona is one of the fastest growing communities in the nation with a thriving health and life sciences cluster, and sports and performance district. Lake Nona also serves as the home of the USTA National Campus, the world’s largest tennis facility and KPMG’s new training and innovation facility. With designs by leading Miami-based architecture firm Arquitectonica, the Tavistock Town Center Hotel is scheduled to break ground in 2018 and open at the end of 2019; and the Tavistock Lake Nona Resort is planned to break ground in 2018, with an anticipated opening date for 2020.
Tavistock Development Company also recently acquired Fort Lauderdale’s Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and Marina, which it intends to reimagine as the City’s social harbor and ultimately as a defining destination of the newly created Hotel Collection.
With a history rooted in hospitality, Tavistock Group’s investments today include several noted hotels, resorts, and restaurants worldwide. From Albany in The Bahamas Tavistock’s name is already synonymous with iconic destinations and world-class experiences.
The Tavistock Lake Nona Resort will be a first-of-its-kind, iconic performance resort and spa featuring one of the nation’s largest manmade crystal lagoons bringing the beach to Central Florida. Nestled between the Lake Nona Golf & Country Club and the USTA National Campus, the property will continue the community’s dedication to wellness, offering the highest level of performance and healthy living in a luxury resort setting, appealing to athletes, leisure travelers, incentive groups, and families.
Additional highlights of the property will include cutting-edge design, leading full-service and top-tier amenities, custom-designed guestrooms to optimize performance and the comfort of multiple guests, as well as an expansive rooftop lounge and a major fitness and spa campus.
The Tavistock Town Center Hotel will sit at the center of what will become a 3+ million-square-foot destination for retail, dining, and entertainment.
The full-service property will feature a 16-story tower with 215 guestrooms and will be an ideal destination for leisure travelers, business professionals, and style-conscious guests. Design details include a sleek exterior, grand motor court entrance, sophisticated lobby, ballroom and meeting space, as well as an 80-seat restaurant and a vibrant rooftop pool and lounge with private event capabilities.
Tavistock Hotel Collection corporate headquarters will be based in Lake Nona, alongside Tavistock’s Development’s headquarters.
