Orlando, FL (PRWEB) March 31, 2006
A VIP "Grand Introduction Celebration" officially launched Baldwin Harbor, a luxury waterfront condominium in Baldwin Park, one of America's most celebrated communities.
"Baldwin Park and Baldwin Harbor are true examples of smart growth," said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. "We all know Central Florida is going to continue to grow but what we want are quality neighborhoods with true amenities, that’s what Baldwin Harbor and Baldwin Park provide."
Orange County Mayor Rich Crotty applauded the concept of a relaxed casual lifestyle in which everything is at your fingertips, "Having the town center concept and having what amounts to a small town setting in an urban area is really great. Situated on a beautiful lake, Baldwin Harbor is going to have the look and feel of nature yet right up the street it's pedestrian friendly. It's the ideal community."
Baldwin Harbor is the only waterfront property in Baldwin Park and is destined to become one of Central Florida's most desirable addresses, offering the convenience and excitement of city life combined with the safety, security and pleasure of living in a friendly traditional neighborhood development.
Baldwin Harbor is being developed by a partnership group known for it's distinctive style. Jeff Cohen, Steve Rosenthal, Dan Gilbert and Nate Forbes have collaborated on numerous successful ventures. Mr. Rosenthal and Mr. Cohen are Managing Partners of Rock Companies, an award-winning residential development group renowned for its quality construction and attention to detail.
Dan Gilbert is the founder and chairman of Quicken Loans, the nation’s largest online mortgage lender, and majority owner of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers. Nate Forbes is a nationally celebrated developer of upscale regional shopping centers, including Orlando's Mall at Millenia.
"The piece of land that we've purchased and we're going to develop is probably the single best piece of land in Central Florida, said partner Steve Rosenthal. "Its lakefront positioning within the suburban-urban area is one-of-a-kind."
Partner Jeff Cohen said the reservation list is quickly growing. "Baldwin Park is unique. It's become the gold standard for Orlando-area real estate and Baldwin Harbor is the crown jewel of Baldwin Park. What you're going to find here, you're not going to find anywhere else in Central Florida."
Just 2 miles from Downtown Orlando and 6 miles from Orlando International Airport, Baldwin Harbor offers the ultimate in luxury living with stunning views, concierge-style five star services and around the clock security. Amenities include a private, 2-acre lush garden park overlooking Lake Baldwin, towel service at the Olympic style pool, a putting green, fire pit and more – all within easy walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants, offices and shops.
Baldwin Harbor's state of the art sales center is already drawing rave reviews and leading to a growing reservation list. Eric and Isabelle saw the quality of the model, experienced the options available and are now anxiously awaiting their new home. "We own homes in Belgium, Switzerland and Celebration. We thought the Baldwin Harbor Sales Center was the most amazing Sales Center we've ever seen. We loved the model and quickly reserved a home."
Armando Fuentes also moved quickly to reserve a home. "I fell in love with the lake view and what the developers have envisioned - high end but still quaint and convenient. I just stood there and looked out at the lake and knew this was for me."
Donald Marquart reserved a home after being drawn to the luxurious and convenient lifestyle "My wife and I live in a 5,000 sq. foot home and we are interested in downsizing with a lake view. We love the idea of shutting the door, turning the key and leaving and not worrying about anything."
The Partners developing Baldwin Harbor are officially launching the project with a 4-day Celebration that includes the Florida premiere of the Mass Music Dome, a one-of-a-kind immersive theatre experience created by internationally renowned musical performance group Mass Ensemble and experience design firm o2 Creative Solutions. Mass Ensemble performs inside a 60-foot geodesic dome that has been erected on the future site of Baldwin Harbor. Inside the dome, musicians construct and perform on the world's largest harp and other unusual sculptural instruments while breathtaking visuals are projected 360 degrees onto the dome's skin creating a totally immersive sensory experience.
