Lake Nona Town Center

With an impressive collection of retail offerings and restaurants, a four-story office building, dual-brand Marriott hotel, and outdoor event facility, the open-air complex is strategically situated to support surrounding residences. Serving as a gateway to future commercial development, the regional destination shines with iconic architecture and an expansive urban plaza. Exterior spaces, arrival gateway, and circulation nodes create an immersive hub that cultivates social activity with palm groves and open lawn areas. Taking cues from its adjacent medical context, the site’s central node features a stethoscope shaped lawn highlighting a signature multimedia experience. Based on a need for flexibility and transition, the concept utilizes a continuous paving pattern, curb-less streetscapes, and retractable bollards to unify pedestrian pathways and allow for flexible event space.

EDSA addressed the development program from a site planning perspective and detailed all exterior program elements including lighting, grading, draining, hardscape, planting and site furnishings for the burgeoning hotspot.
