New Broad Street Management
Good design sells. Look no further than one of the largest infill redevelopment projects in the United States. When New Broad Street Management sought to transform the abandoned, environmentally stressed Orlando Naval Training Center into a sustainable, mixed-use community of traditional neighborhoods, they looked to VHB to join their team. Using time-tested principals of New Urbanism, our team designed a smart, healthy community mixing residential, commercial, and civic uses all in close proximity, creating pedestrian friendly neighborhoods each anchored by a neighborhood park. Given Baldwin Park is ten minutes from downtown Orlando, vehicular traffic was going to be a challenge. The team overcame this by designing an open community with no gates, no walls and connected by a road network with more than 25 entries and exits to disperse traffic. Today, Baldwin Park is a powerful economic engine, drawing some of the highest real estate values in the area. Good design does sell.
