Why Residents Love The Area

A beautiful home in Thornton Park

Chris started his search looking for a townhome or condo downtown. He wanted to be close to the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center since he likes going to concerts and off-broadway shows. He purchased a condo downtown because the layout and price were exactly what he was looking for.

Things to Consider 

  • The “I-4 Ultimate” remodel can be a pain at the intersection of I-4 & Toll road 408. This is the biggest intersection in downtown Orlando.
  • Road noise, lights, and airplane noise from the Orlando Executive Airport should be considered.
  • Special events like NBA games, concerts and more can affect traffic in the evening.
