Why the Lake Nona Area is so Popular with Families

Why the Lake Nona Area is so Popular with Families

In less than 8 years, the Lake Nona area has grown from a sleepy rural area, bordering Orlando International Airport, to a whole new ‘city’ of lovely upscale communities.
While lake Nona itself is a definitive body of water, surrounded by Tavistock’s exclusive Lake Nona Country Club, the term ‘Nona’ is affectionately applied to just about everything bordering a section of State Road 417.
Tavistock’s 7,000 acres plus land holding on both sides of the 417 is becoming a hotbed for builders and commercial developers.

Custom Home Opportunities in the Lake Nona area

The McNally Construction Group’s custom home team has built some of the finest homes around the lakes of the Nona area.
It takes a lot of expertise and experience to design and build the perfect lake front home, and we’ve enjoyed building around Lake Whippo0rwill, Lake Hart and Lake Mary Jane.

Retail and Dining at Lake Nona has dominated the area in 2017!

2017 has seen a huge surge in activity along Narcoossee Road just south of SR417.
Until recently, the area had little more than Lake Nona High School and Lake Nona middle school and a few small shops and restaurants such as ABC Wines, Publix, ATT and Wendy’s.
This year however, brought us big retailers, including Sam’s Club, Walmart, Petsmart, TJ Max, Lowes and many more.

2018 onwards will be about leisure!

Looking a little further ahead, we will hear a lot more about leisure in the Lake Nona area.
Already the new TopGolf structure is taking shape near the 417/Lake Nona Blvd intersection.
But the big news for the area keeps rolling in with Nona soon to home the USTA National Campus – the world’s largest tennis campus with 100 courts!
If 100 tennis courts isn’t captivating enough, the eight-story Lake Nona Resort will have 250 custom-designed guest rooms and 80 condominium units along with a 20 acre clear lagoon.
