Anchoring the north end of Winter Park's retail thoroughfare of Park Avenue sits the mixed-use development of Park Place. This $10 million project has 15,500 square feet in retail space at the ground floor, including accommodations for a large restaurant at the street corner. A retail colonnade lined with massive columns and lighter ornamental paired steel columns provides opportunities for the retail storefronts to engage the foot traffic of Park Avenue. A stone masonry unit system for the walls and columns add the visual weight of a solid base to the building. Above the retail sits 30,000 sq. ft. of office space on two upper levels. Office balconies provide ideal exposure to the Avenue. The edges of the balconies are defined by ornamental metal railings and steel columns similar to those of the colonnade below. The Avenue entrance to the office lobby is centered along the colonnade. It is crowned by a stylized pediment that bears the name of the building. 

In addition to the retail/office building, a 5-level pre-cast concrete parking garage is tucked between the mixed-use 3-story building to the east and the railroad tracks to the west. The sweeping curve of the railroad tracks pushes the west wall of the garage to turn and angle closer as it reaches the south wall, creating a wedge effect. This unique footprint accommodates 269 total parking spaces for the offices and for the public. The garage wall base mimics the stone base of the mixed-used building by having the stone pattern form lined into the pre-cast walls. Overlooking Central Park to the south, it provides ideal parking during special City festivals and events. Although the garage is separated from the mixed-use building by a distance of approximately twenty feet, the two buildings are connected by a system of covered walkways and bridges. This separation space is also buffered by landscaping. Green Screen' panels lined with ivy hang off the east wall to soften the solid building edge facing the adjacent single story residence. Stair enclosures are topped with the same standing seam metal roofs of the mixed-use building.

These two buildings are also integrated by an architectural style. While adhering to the strict architectural guidelines of the City, Park Place meets the design preferences of both the Owner and the City through the expression of the Arts & Crafts design. Stylized steel columns, ornamental guard rails, pronounced trim lines, a stone base, and an historic color palette scheme all lend to the craftsman architectural style. Awnings, landscaping and ornamental light fixtures help showcase the buildings in the language associated with Park Avenue. Aluminum windows and curtain walls are detailed with an intricate pattern of muntins and mullions. Many of the garage openings, proportioned to match the mixed-use building's windows, are also lined with ornamental patterns to either match the mullion patterns or the balcony railings. Metal brackets reach out to support the deep overhangs of the sloped metal roofs. The largest of these raised hip roofs punctuates the Project's presence at the intersection of Park and Canton Avenues.

The project was completed in March 2006 and announced Winner of the Central Florida NAIOP Award of Excellence for 2005 Outstanding Mixed-Use Project.
