Terrence Hart and his wife always enjoyed a short drive from their College Park home for a stroll through the center of Baldwin Park.
But not too long ago, Hart noticed there were a number of tenants along New Broad Street in the mixed-use development near downtown Orlando that just weren’t relevant anymore.
So last year, he reached out to one of his clients, Dallas-based Tabani Group — which also happened to be the landlord of the retail portion of the Baldwin Park Village Center — and asked if he could take on the task of making it more family friendly for Baldwin Park residents and a destination for those living outside the upscale community.
“They tried to do the leasing from Texas but it didn’t work, so I asked for this one,” said Hart, senior director of retail for commercial real estate brokerage Franklin Street in Orlando. “I think in the past, it had been mishandled [by previous owners]. Tabani has gotten everyone on the same page, and I wanted to make it more relevant.
“We want people to realize Baldwin Park is a fun place to go, walk around, eat at the restaurants and go to the stores.”
