One of Orlando’s newest developments, just minutes from downtown, Baldwin Park is a Rockwellian

neighborhood that exudes a small-town atmosphere and neighborly friendliness. The picturesque
streets are lined with homes of nostalgic architecture, wide sidewalks, a network of walking and biking
trails and easy access to an active town center. Less than a decade old, the development was designed
to reduce residents’ dependence on the automobile and encourage pedestrian activities. It has won
numerous awards for its plan and design from such organizations as the National Association of Home
Builders, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Congress for the New Urbanism; and it has
become a model community for other developments in Florida and beyond.

The 1,100-acre tract of land that became the foundation for the new development has a rich history
in Orlando. The U.S. armed services had set up shop there in the early 1940s, when the Army Air
Corps built a training center there; and when Orlando was chosen to be the location of a naval training
center in 1966, they established it on the same piece of land. The Orlando Naval Training Center was
commissioned in 1968 and when it was decommissioned in December 1998 it left a void the city’s
growing urban landscape.

Developers began infrastructure improvements in 2001 and by 2007, the model community of Baldwin
Park was beginning to take shape. To commemorate the historic location, Lake Baldwin and the
development were named after Robert H. B. Baldwin, former under secretary of the Navy; and a
Veterans Park on the northern shore of the lake was created recognize the legacy left behind by the
service men and women who occupied the spot for a 60-year period.

The heart of the community is Baldwin Park’s Village Center, a waterfront setting with office space, city
homes, apartment buildings and apartments above retail stores. There, residents of the community can
find just about anything they need in a small-town atmosphere that is a throwback to the 1950s. There’s
a grocery store, pharmacy and neighborhood banks, as well as a mix of shops for home goods, practical
purchases and professional services, a variety of restaurants, pubs and even a chocolatier. The village
center was designed with a scenic water walk, which ties it to the surrounding environment and nearby
Lake Baldwin.

Baldwin Park is home to many dual-income families and close to 80 percent of its households have
children. The project is essentially built out with one of the final apartment projects under construction
in 2012.
