Tavistock Development Company said the 201-unit modern flat community will be situated on 4.25 acres at the southeast intersection of Tavistock Lakes Boulevard and Lake Nona Boulevard, near Lake Nona Town Center.
"Pixon’s main 11-story tower will connect to a three-story parking structure via an enclosed second-story walkway," the company said in a news release. "The community will feature access controlled buildings and elevators, 24-hour concierge and valet, in addition to 24-hour express maintenance and valet trash service. Pixon is pet friendly and will be home to a designated pet spa and grooming area."
Six of the 201 units will be 360 square-foot micro apartment units, 42 will be 560 square-foot studios, 52 will be 720 square-foot one-bedroom units, 101 will be 1,050 square-foot two-bedroom units, and there will be a 1,730-square-foot penthouse.
The units will be equipped with stainless steel appliances, 10 feet tall floor-to-ceiling windows, quartz counter tops, front load washers and dryers, wood floors and frameless glass showers.
The ground floor of the building will be reserved for a mixed-use commercial space that will include a bar/restaurant, a retail area and a cafe. An adjacent area will be a co-living space for residents to access and for special events.
Pre-leasing will begin in the summer of 2018.
