The duo of the 584,300-square-foot Baldwin Harbor Luxury Apartments buildings, developed by McLaren Engineering Group in collaboration with development firm ZOM and Looney Ricks Kiss architects, are located in the heart of Orlando, adjacent to the Colonial Town Center and a short drive from the Orlando Executive Airport. The community opened its first building last month, and the second will be complete by the end of the year.
The Baldwin Harbor Luxury Apartments is located on the Lake Baldwin waterfront. The residential building has a lot to offer to its residents: best-in-class amenities, including two resort-style pools with cabanas, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, a game room with billiard table, and a clubhouse with Wi-Fi. The community also offers an outdoor fire pit and grilling area.
Baldwin Harbor will have a total of 483 units, consisting of one, two, and three-bedroom apartment homes ranging from 627 square feet to 1,459 square feet. Rents range between $1,000 and $3,000 a month. All units feature upscale and premium finishes, as well as in-suite washer and dryers.
McLaren Engineering Group provided structural engineering, construction administration and design services for the two new four-story wood-framed apartment buildings. McLaren designed the buildings to be primarily constructed of wood-framed roof and floor trusses, with steel placed in areas where the span was too long for wood to cover.
The four-story buildings are primarily constructed of wood-framed roof and floor trusses, wood-framed bearing and shear walls, and a post-tensioned concrete slab-on-grade with monolithic thickened edges at bearing and shear walls. The residences are located only half an hour away from Walt Disney’s World Resort.
