Orlando’s Southeast Town Design Review Committee signed off Thursday on a proposal to build a trio of apartment towers on Tavistock Lakes Boulevard next door to the Landon House apartments.
Tavistock Development Company, master developer of Lake Nona, has dubbed this block across from the Town Center as “midtown.” Skylar would consist of 627 residential units spread across three mixed-use residential towers and eight 2-story townhouses.
Jamie Bennett, senior project manager, said Tavistock has spent several years refining plans for the Skylar Towers. “We have a really solid plan that we’re excited about,” she said.
Tower A, located in the northeast corner of the site, would be 18 stories with 221 residential units. The developer sought and received approval from the city to allow for maximum building height of 20 stories, and subsequently filed a Specific Parcel Master Plan for the multi-phased development, which includes 25,473 square feet of office and retail space.
At 201 feet, Skylar will be the tallest building in Lake Nona and will have to undergo a “tall structure review” by the Federal Aviation Authority. Towers A and C would be constructed in Phase 1, along with a 7-story parking garage, according to the application package.
Tavistock Vice President Jessi Blakley told GrowthSpotter the developer is targeting early 2023 to begin construction with an estimated two-year buildout. Tower A, located in the northeast corner of the site, is 18 stories with 221 residential units (including the only three-bedroom units), with 7308 square feet of retail on the ground floor attached to an amenity room that opens up to the shared outdoor swimming pool and courtyard.
Tavistock has engaged CES Design Group as the project architect. The submittal package includes conceptual renderings of what the towers will look like. The final designs will be subject to approval from a city building official.
