Disney’s Lake Nona headquarters project has passed through the Development Review Committee with a unanimous 5-0 vote by committee members. The vote was held on March 9th and is known as the Lake Nona Parcel 20A Office Complex. The vote was recorded in meeting minutes reviewed by BlogMickey.com.
The site plan, which can be seen below, calls for 6 office buildings, two flex space buildings, and a central plant totaling over 1.8 million square feet of space. The buildings will range in height from 1-story to 7-stories tall and there will be three parking garages to support the campus.
The campus will be utilized by the Disney Parks division of The Walt Disney Company. The relocation of 2,000 Cast Members from California to Orlando was originally announced in July 2021. The move has been delayed from a 2023 move-in date all the way to 2026. The announcement of the delay came at a time last summer when Disney was in a more adversarial position with the State of Florida. Of course, with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis dead set on “winning” a culture war against Disney, the company continues to have conflicts with the State, but the project is currently moving forward.
The next steps in the project include reviews for building elevations and landscape plans before the project moves to Permitting.
