Tennis Association Breaks Ground in Community

The U.S. Tennis Association broke ground on a $60 million facility in Lake Nona. Developers from the Tavistock Group laid out plans for an 11-square-mile sports district.

The facility will house 24 clay courts, 16 hard courts; a University of Central Florida tennis area with 12 hard courts, elevated seating and facilities for 1,200 spectators; a Team USA area with eight hard courts and eight clay courts; and a player-development area with eight hard courts, eight red-clay courts and six covered courts. The space includes dormitories for 32 youth players and an area with eight courts that are shorter than regulation.

“No tennis facility anywhere will have everything this center has to offer,” said Gordon Smith, executive director for the association. “Even the size of it I think people will be completely blown away by.”

New Ronald McDonald House

A new Ronald McDonald House will be built next to Nemours Children’s Hospital with a projected completion in spring 2016. The $6 million contemporary structure will be the third for Orlando, placing the city among only six others in the country to have three locations. Moving away from the more homey one-bedroom apartments to larger suites constructed with eco-friendly materials, this house will have a completely new look and feel. The home will accommodate about 15 families on the first two floors and eventually double the capacity when the third floor is completed. The roomier accommodations will help families who stay for extended periods of time. Other changes include the addition of a second kitchen for volunteers and support groups as well as a playground and garden.
