In the past few years, The Walt Disney Company has had some significant changes.
Theme parks are getting updated, Disney+ was launched back in 2019, and leadership has switched back and forth a few times. But one of the biggest changes coming for the company is that they’re moving 2000 jobs from California to Central Florida.
A while back, Disney announced plans for a new campus in Lake Nona, a suburb of Orlando, FL. But on Thursday, March 9th the project will go before the development review committee in order to approve the master plan.
Lake Nona master developer Tavistock Development Co. is acting as applicant on behalf of the landowner, according to Orlando Business Journal. Tavistock Development Co. sold the land to Disney in September 2021 for $46 million. If Disney’s request is approved by the committee, the next steps include “submitting an official site plan, along with elevations, signage, and landscaping plans for the city’s appearance review board.”
The final step before groundbreaking on the project would be building permits. The project itself could cost more than $1.3 million to build, according to Disney. Currently, city staff have recommended the request for approval, (subject to conditions outlined in the report) which means the committee will likely follow through and approve the plan.
Orlando Business Journal has previously reported that “the eight buildings to be constructed on the north side of Lake Nona Boulevard, immediately southwest of Lake Nona Town Center, will be subdivided into six office buildings that will total 1.46 million square feet in space and two flex buildings totaling 346,000 square feet.” More about the project’s timeline will be known as it continues to “ramp up.”
