Coffee breaks are the number one choice for the working American, but what happened to tea time? Tea time has been a part of American history before, the American Revolution and the Boston Tea Party.

5 Reasons Baldwin Park Is One of Orlando’s Best Neighborhoods

Baldwin Park is the perfect example of traditional living in the 21st century as it is known to be a very functional, sustainable and attractive neighborhood. The overall neighborhood layout has won numerous awards from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to the National Association of Homebuilders. Five reasons this neighborhood reigns as a prime example of traditional neighborhood living is due to well-thought-out urban design planning that promotes walkability, family-friendly public spaces, close by shopping experiences, building designs that promote neighbor to neighbor engagement and its location, location, location.

Welcome To The Neighborhood of Baldwin Park.jpg

Walkable

Baldwin Park was designed to be walkable, where families can enjoy the perfect morning, afternoon and/or evening stroll. One fascinating aspect of the neighborhood is that the roads were created to where the curb extends further into the street (than the average road curb), which affects traffic flow in that oncoming traffic will have to slow down tremendously, when making right turns, preventing civilian traffic deaths.

Open Public Spaces

Open public spaces throughout the community is evidence that family life and neighborhood communing was on the hearts of the developers. Throughout the neighborhood, you will find open spaces and grassy areas created and reserved for the perfect kid-friendly play areas without the worry of traffic flow interfering with children’s playtime. There are also scenic waterway spaces like the well-known Kevin Tyjeski Memorial Bridge area, where many families gather for photo ops and the Baldwin Park Village Center, where community events from community concerts to Independence Day bashes with street vendors and a spectacular fireworks show take place.

Types of Housing Features

Baldwin Park offers a variety of housing types from single family housing to townhouses with property values ranging from $200,000 to $2 million. If you take a look at the single family homes and the townhouses in Baldwin Park, you will see many of the single family homes with front porches and many condos with balconies facing the other neighbor’s front porch and balcony. The reason this was implemented into the layout design of Baldwin Park’s housing is to create the feel of a close-knit community setting that invites neighbors to engage with each other during the time they spend outdoors.

In need of an office space at home? The townhouses located in Baldwin Park are highly functional for the working professional as the lower portion of the unit can be used as a walk-in office space (with a parking spot located in front of the property for personal or commercial client parking convenience) and the top of the unit can be used as a living quarter.
