Target in Lake Nona: A Game-Changer in the Making!

Lake Nona West is abuzz about setting up a Target in Lake Nona. Join us as we explore the potential benefits of having this store as a neighbor.

Lake Nona, hold onto your hats because we’ve got some electrifying news that’s set to transform our vibrant community. Picture this: Target’s iconic red bullseye sign beckoning you into a shopping extravaganza right here in Lake Nona West!

Yes, you heard it right. Target is in talks with Tavistock Development Co., the visionary force behind Lake Nona, about becoming part of our community. While the ink isn’t dry on any lease just yet, the excitement in the air is palpable, and real estate insiders are buzzing with anticipation.

The Buzz in Lake Nona West

In response to the Orlando Business Journal (OBJ), Lismarie Gomez, Communication Manager at Tavistock, acknowledged the widespread speculation but quickly reminded everyone that no official lease agreements have been signed.

Nevertheless, the excitement within our community is undeniable. We know several neighbors who can’t wait for the day when they can shop to their heart’s content at Target in Lake Nona.

Sneak Peek of Target in Lake Nona

Target, always on the lookout for prime locations, has given us a tantalizing hint. They’re actively exploring potential store locations to welcome new guests, and Lake Nona West seems to be on their radar.

While we can’t pinpoint the exact location of the new Target in Lake Nona, our imaginations are running wild, envisioning a spectacular 150,000-square-foot anchor store in the heart of our neighborhood.

This larger store model is part of Target’s bold new strategy, with similar stores growing nationwide. The company’s executives have expressed their commitment to this impressive format in their expansion plans, and Lake Nona West could be the perfect canvas for Target’s retail masterpiece.

Bridging the Gap

Let’s talk logistics. The absence of a Target store in southeast Orlando, Lake Nona, or even fast-growing St. Cloud has been felt by residents for quite some time. Currently, the nearest Target stands about 10 miles away in Hunters Creek, west of Lake Nona West’s potential location.

If this plan comes to fruition, it will be a game-changer for the community, offering convenient access to the quality products and delightful shopping experiences Target is renowned for.

Embracing Growth

Our community has been steadily growing, and we’re more than ready to welcome big-box and junior-box tenants with open arms. Experts like Jill Rose, Senior Vice President at Bishop Beale Duncan, recognize the need for these power center tenants. As Lake Nona’s density continues to rise, it’s only natural that national retailers want to be part of our dynamic community.

John Crossman, President of CrossMarc Services, echoed this sentiment, acknowledging that Lake Nona, like other flourishing master-planned communities, had to wait for the right moment. Lake Nona, that moment might just be here, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect.

Crossing Our Fingers

So, Lake Nona, let’s cross our fingers and keep our hopes high! As we eagerly await more official news and updates, the possibility of having Target in Lake Nona has us all excitedly buzzing. Stay tuned to our community channels for the latest developments.
