Baldwin Park Village Center

Inspired by eclectic Florida Main Street architecture, Baldwin Park Village Center anchors the commercial core of a thriving new urbanism community and skillfully interprets the notion of “living above the store.” A grocery store, bank, drug store, shops and restaurants occupy an array of buildings defined by complementary styles typical of a small Southern town. Distinctive balconies and architectural details further enliven the exteriors and engage the pedestrian-friendly streetscape.
