Here's how many jobs this corporate HQ relocation may bring to Lake Nona

Ocala-based home storage company ClosetMaid Corp. — which employs roughly 1,500 people worldwide — will occupy 27,000 square feet of space in Lake Nona as part of a headquarters relocation, according to an executive with Lake Nona developer Tavistock Development Co. And that may mean the company is bringing 192 people to its new Lake Nona campus, according to industry standards. A representative with ClosetMaid couldn't be reached for comment. The company plans to move into its new office at Town Center Office II in the Lake Nona Town Center later this summer, said Skipper Peek, senior vice president of commercial sales, leasing and pre-development with Tavistock.
