Description :

Joe Lewis continues to expand his vision for his Lake Nona development near Orlando, one of the fastest growing communities in the USA. Anchored by a medical city now with four large medical institutions, it recently broke ground on the USTA's new home for American tennis with over 100 tennis courts, training facilities and staff headquarters. It also opened a new Innovation Center to serve as an incubator for high tech and research outfits. Lewis has interests in more than 200 companies through his Tavistock Group. Among the more notable holdings: London Premiership soccer team Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs), a stake in UK's largest pub operator, Mitchell's & Butlers plc, and approximately 135 restaurants in the U.S. operating under such brands as Abe & Louie's and Freebirds. Born above a pub in London's East End, he helped his family build a catering business before selling it off and becoming a currency trader. Lewis is building a 320-foot yacht with an indoor paddle tennis court.
