Lake Nona announced on Tuesday that it has initiated plans to open a dozen new businesses at its Lake Nona Village and Lake Nona Plaza shopping centers on Narcoossee Road in south Orlando, adding a total of sixteen new businesses to the community by the end of the year.

"This collection of businesses will be another great addition to our growing community," said Jill Rose, senior sales and leasing associate for Lake Nona. "Retailers already see the value of what a Lake Nona location brings right now, along with the promise of what will be here as the community matures."

Lake Nona has seen a tremendous amount of entrepreneurial and residential growth as major employers at Medical City open. The community was recognized in January as the best-selling new home community in the Orlando market, and the 14th best-selling community in the country, with more than 450 homes sold in 2012.
