At a Crossroads

Published at 3:48 p.m. on March 21, 2014

Baldwin Park and Avalon Park in Orlando offer a self-contained community for residents, businesses and visitors. The multi-use design of shops, homes and parks provides a small town feel to large urban areas. Developers in Manatee County are planning a similar type of self-contained multi-use development in the area of 53rd Avenue West, from IMG Academy west to 75th Street West in Bradenton.
