What Houzz contributors are saying:

New urbanism. Another alternative is projects that follow the charter of the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU), "the leading organization promoting walkable, mixed-use neighborhood development, sustainable communities and healthier living conditions," according to the group's website. The most well known CNU developments include Seaside and Celebration, both in Florida, the latter developed by the Walt Disney Company. Also in Florida is the CNU Baldwin Park project in Orlando, shown here, which sits on a former military base. In this view we can see the mixed-use core and the residential in the lower right. Much criticism levied at new urbanism contends that it is suburbia in new (neotraditional) clothes; the street-front buildings hiding interior blocks of surface parking are cases in point.
