Construction of a 215-room hotel designed by Miami-based Arquitectonica is scheduled to start early next year in Orlando’s Lake Nona community.

Tavistock Development Company is developing the hotel as part of the next phase of a mixed-use development called Lake Nona Town Center.

The 16-story hotel will feature an 80-seat restaurant, a rooftop lounge and swimming pool, a 3,200-square-foot ballroom and more than 6,000 square feet of meeting space.

The hotel will be located next to a multi-purpose green space in Lake Nona Town Center called The Lawn.

The first phase of Lake Nona Town Center opened in January 2016 with an 85,000-square-foot office building and 16,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, a five-story parking garage and two hotels, a Marriott Residence Inn and a Courtyard by Marriott.

The master-planned Lake Nona community is part of the real estate portfolio of Bahamas-based Tavistock, a diversified real estate firm.

The pipeline of development projects at Lake Nona includes a $400 million training and innovation facility for accounting firm KPMG and a high-tech fulfillment center for online retailer Amazon.
