The southeast Orlando community Lake Nona will soon see increased construction activity after the city of Orlando approved development plans for new homes, offices, showrooms, private athletic fields, mixed-use buildings, fitness centers, and more, reports Orlando Business Journal staffer Rachel Williams.

Lake Nona's developer is Tavistock Development Co. LLC. It will now move forward with its plans for a high-end neighborhood and develop land near the future U.S. Tennis Association's 63-acre, $100 million campus that’s opening by the end of 2016.

Tavistock plans to expand its Laureate Park neighborhood by 54.8 acres and will include 207 lots that will be used for more single-family homes and town homes.

Also included in the now approved plans: Travistock will develop a 6,300-square-foot, mixed-use building; a 2,300-square-foot, multi-purpose building; a 3,000-square-foot fitness center; two swimming pools and neighborhood green space on 10.77 acres north of Tavistock Lakes Boulevard and east of Sachs Avenue. Later phases of the Laureate Park Neighborhood Center call for 141 housing units, including town homes, condos, single-family waterfront homes and boutique apartments.
