More news is beginning to unfold in relation to Disney’s Planned Campus in Lake Nona, Florida. Now, the Orlando Business Journal has reported that Disney is in talks with Tavistock Development Company to develop an age-restricted community as part of the nearly 27,000-acre Sunbridge development near Lake Nona.
This news comes after Disney confirmed it would be moving a portion of its west coast operations to Lake Nona. The relocation includes approximatley 2,000 jobs. Soon, Imagineers, and other Parks, Experience, Products division executives will be some of the first jobs to be relocated. With this plan comes the decision to begin building a professional campus.
Now, Disney is looking to include an age-restricted community. According to Orlando Business Journal, this planned community will be similar to The Villages. This makes a lot of sense since The Villages is a large and very popular 55 and older community and is appealing because of its distance to the parks. Disney’s interest in the age-restricted concept comes as no surprise because Florida’s poularity among retierees makes similar developments very successful. It’s easy to see why an age-restricted Disney community would be a good move for the company.
The Sunbridge community also offers lots of room for growth. In addition, it is a desirable location for its proximity to Disney World and its nearness to the Orlando International Airport.
