KPMG will build a 55-acre learning, development, and innovation facility in Lake Nona, Orlando, Florida. The company plans to make a more than $400 million capital investment and hire 80 associates.
Lake Nona is a 7,000-acre mixed-use planned community, southeast of Orlando International Airport, Construction on the new, state-of-the-art facility is scheduled to begin in spring 2017 and be completed in late 2019. This will be the largest capital investment project that the Orlando EDC has worked on in the last 10 years, according to Orlando economic development officials.
The campus meeting will include an Innovation Center, a museum, as well as 800 guest rooms, fitness and outdoor recreational facilities, and multiple food and beverage venues.
“Our center will be the cornerstone of our learning and development strategy, which will continue to blend in-person training and virtual options,” said P. Scott Ozanus, Deputy Chairman & COO, KPMG LLP. “It will give our partners and professionals the benefits of alternating between classroom and field-like training environments for an experience that is interactive, innovative, and collaborative.”
“KPMG now joins other high-caliber companies, USTA, ADP, Deloitte, Verizon, all global companies who have chosen to invest in the Orlando region because they now know the ‘other half’ of Orlando’s story,” said Robert Utsey, Chair of the Orlando Economic Development Commission.
