Lake Nona is a 17-square-mile, innovative community focused on sustainable design, healthy living and groundbreaking gigabit fiber optic technology, which will be anchored by a 15-acre crystalline lagoon. Developed together with the Tavistock Devlopment Company, this project in Orlando, Florida, received Silver Award for “Best Lifestyle Program of the Year.”
The 7.5-acre lagoon powered by Crystal Lagoons technology was the firm’s first in the United States and quickly became a success story in terms of sales and later as a major attraction for local residents.
