KPMG, a leading global professional services firm, is currently building a $450 million learning, development and innovation center at Lake Nona called KPMG Lakehouse. Serving as KPMG’s new cultural home, the 55-acre site will feature a 780,000 square-foot main building that includes: 800 single-occupancy guest rooms, up to 90 learning and innovation spaces, a 1,000-seat assembly hall, and an Ignition Center where accounting, auditing, tax and advisory professionals can meet with clients to brainstorm creative concepts and ideas to solve business challenges.
Lakehouse, privately owned by KPMG and not open to the public, will also include multiple dining areas, a free-standing social venue, a 15,000 square-foot fitness center and additional wellbeing-focused recreational amenities throughout the property.
Conveniently located just a few miles from Orlando International Airport, Lakehouse will generate roughly 40,000 annual visits from KPMG partners and professionals to the Orlando area; an estimate of 800 traveling through the airport each week. A strategic location for the firm, KPMG Lakehouse provides easy accessibility for professionals and clients from around the United States. Due to the immense size of the facility, KPMG will implement wayfinding technology to help people navigate KPMG Lakehouse and efficiently determine where they need to go. The technology is similar to the wayfinding technology used at Orlando International Airport.
"From the moment our KPMG partners and professionals arrive in Orlando, they may opt-in to the wayfinding technology via their mobile devices that will lead them to KPMG Lakehouse,” said Bill Flemming, KPMG’s managing director and head of construction management. “The technology will help guide each visitor to his or her private guest room, provide keyless entry, and help select the room’s climate control, choose a TV station and a number of other features. The technology helps prepare the room to the guest’s specifications, and readies them for all KPMG Lakehouse has to offer."
KPMG Lakehouse will open in January 2020. As an economic development engine in Central Florida, Lakehouse will create at least 80 KPMG jobs and more than 250 third-party contract operator positions onsite.
