A new commercial featuring Board of Trustees member Rick Walsh was posted on UCF’s YouTube page last week:
A bold move by UCF. 30,000 jobs. And billions in economic development. The only project of its kind. Some call it a game changer. We call it a medical city. With research, hospitals and a College of Medicine…we’re transforming and savings lives. I’m Rick Walsh, UCF Class of ’77.
UCF’s new 50-acre College of Medicine campus is at the center of the emerging 600-acre “medical city” in Lake Nona. Lake Nona is a master-planned community taking shape in southeast Orlando. I had a few requests to take some photos of the new campus in Lake Nona (officially, the UCF Health Sciences Campus). I’d never been to the Lake Nona area before, so I decided to take a drive down 417 to take a look.
I have to admit, right now this place seems like it’s in the middle of nowhere, but that will soon change. New housing developments are already springing up along Lake Nona Blvd. north of 417. A “town center” development is planned for the site across the street from UCF’s campus. More development is sure to follow once the economy recovers. Overall, it is really awesome what they are building in Lake Nona.
