Watson Realty Corp. Lake Nona Groundbreaking

05/22/19 by Danielle Stedham

Watson Realty Corp. is hosting it's official groundbreaking event for its newest Lake Nona location.

The event will be celebrated on May 24 at 11 a.m. at 14876 Narcoossee Rd, Orlando, FL 32832 in the construction site near the brand-new Wawa convenience store. 

The day's events will begin with a welcoming speech by Mr. Watson, following with Mr. Ed Forman to touch on community affairs and posterity, and finally Mr. Jeff Fragan will discuss the new office's goals, building timeline, and impact on the region. Refreshments will be provided. 

This new office will serve residential and commercial customers just north of the Orange-Osceola county line in the Lake Nona region of southeast Orlando. The property was purchased back in 2017 for $825,000, and Watson is set to occupy 60 percent of the building, using the remaining space for leasing or events. The office will be a roughly 8,740-square-foot building designed with a Spanish-roofed architectural style to blend with the community aesthetic. Cost estimates range from $2-2.5 million. Lake Nona will mark Watson’s 51st existing office. Construction will begin May 26 for a projected 2020 opening.
