Master planned communities[edit]

Lake Nona, Orlando, Florida[edit]

Tavistock Group is the developer of Lake Nona, a multi-faceted, 17-square-mile (44 km2, 10,900 acre, 4,400 hectare)[4] mixed-use development in southeast Orlando. This large-scale community was designed to host education, medical and recreational facilities, a life sciences cluster, diverse workspaces, and a range of residential options.

The centerpiece of the community is Lake Nona Medical City—which includes the University of Central Florida College of Medicine and the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, the University of Florida Academic and Research Center, Nemours Children’s Hospital, and the Orlando Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Resort properties & private clubs[edit]

Albany, New Providence[edit]

Other luxury resort properties include Albany on the island of New Providence in the Bahamas designed in conjunction with Tiger Woods and Ernie Els. This luxury beach resort community (opened in October 2010) features an Els-designed 18-hole championship golf course and a 71-slip mega-yacht marina flanked by luxury residences designed by noted architects, including the late Charles Gwathmey and Robert A.M. Stern.[6]

St. Regis Atlanta[edit]

Tavistock Group owns the St. Regis Atlanta, a 26-floor development with 151 guest rooms and suites and 53 residences located in Atlanta's Buckhead community.

Harmony Cove, Jamaica[edit]

Tavistock Group has partnered with the Jamaican government’s Harmonization Ltd. to jointly plan and develop 2,350 oceanfront acres on the country’s northern coast into Harmony Cove, a new resort destination category for Jamaica. Harmony Cove is situated 30 minutes from Montego Bay and Ocho Rios in Trelawny Parish and will offer luxury accommodations, championship golf courses, a casino, and an assortment of shopping and dining choices.

Lake Nona Wave Hotel, Orlando[edit]

The Lake Nona Wave Hotel has been called “the most technologically advanced hotel in the world,” and for good reason. Opened in December 2021, each of the 234 rooms—including the 16 one-bedroom suites and two penthouses—runs on a digital concierge. In-room voice commands control the smart lighting and temperature controls, and the smart-glass windows dynamically block 99% of UV light throughout the day.

As a whole, the upscale lifestyle hotel features an artwork collection of more than 500 pieces; two restaurants – Bacán and HAVEN – and Living Room Bar; swimming pool; technogym-powered fitness studio; 42-foot rock-climbing tower; and access to the first-ever Dr. Deepak Chopra’s Mind-Body Zone and Spa.
