  • Based on an extensive community planning process, the City of Orlando has developed a detailed vision for the NTC site reflecting traditional neighborhood development planning principles. This vision calls for a mixed-use Village Center adjoining Lake Baldwin surrounded by distinct residential neighborhoods. The Village Center would have significantly higher densities than is typical of modern suburban development and would include shops, offices, and multi-family dwellings. Baldwin Park Orlando, Florida
  • Priority would be given to enhancing the pedestrian experience. In the Village Center, commercial facilities with ground- floor shops would be focused around a main street with a view to developing an active street life. Use of bicycles and mass transit would be encouraged. Baldwin Park Orlando, Florida
  • Develop a centralized and walkable public school Define distinct neighborhoods A local public elementary school within walking distance of most homes in the community will be an invaluable civic asset and a strong selling point. The school will be built in a central location in an early phase. As an important civic institution that may serve on occasion as a town meeting hall or community center, the school will be carefully integrated into planning for the Village Center. The auditorium will have a community orientation and will serve as the “community playhouse.” Each residential district will have its own neighborhood center and identity. The neighborhood centers will be intimate in scale, featuring small shops and perhaps a church or other religious or civic institution centered around a neighborhood green or square. Higher density housing will cluster around the center together with special community amenities such as swimming pools and health clubs. Each center will be located within a five- minute walk of a residential neighborhood. Baldwin Park Orlando, Florida Create a clear center for the community As specified in the guidelines, the Village Center adjacent to Lake Baldwin will be the community’s commercial hub and principle public gathering place. Emphasis will be placed on the creation of a high-quality pedestrian environment by means of attractive storefronts and a pleasant streetscape. Restaurants and entertainment venues near the waterfront coupled with traditional “main street” retailing will help generate a lively street scene in both day and evening hours. A close-grained mix of retail, commercial, and multifamily housing will further enhance the Village Center’s vitality. “Main Street” is envisioned as an extension of Maguire, which will connect the Village Center to Highway 50 and the Fashion Square Mall.
