Lake Nona is a young and ever-growing community. So much has been added to our lovely town within the past year, but there is still so much more yet to come. Here are a few things you can expect to join the Lake Nona community in the coming years.
One Performance will be an ultra-modern medical office connecting directly to Lake Nona Performance Club. This plaza will be located in Town Center adjacent to Lake Nona Performance Club. Besides the medical office, One Performance Plaza will have a retail building that will also sit adjacent to the office. This retail space will be a total of 12,000 square feet. However, the medical office will comprise around 152,784 square footage. In addition, the medical office building will have View Smart Windows around the entire building. These windows will adjust to the outside environment removing any need to use blinds. Also, One Performance Plaza will feature enhanced bio-defense airing and sterilization techniques to follow Lake Nona’s new viral defense standards to combat Covid-19. Currently, under construction, One Performance Plaza is likely going to be open this fall!
