Two outstanding-and opposite-excellent examples of the type of development the City of Lakeland promotes are the Renaissance Group, at 9700 Village Circle and Askew Hargraves Harcourt and Associates at the corner of Fletcher Trace and Davies Plantation Road.
Both firms offer architectural, engineering and other related services. Renaissance Group built a new building on Village Circle (east of Crackerbarrel). I had the privilege of touring the building and it is certainly an outstanding asset to Lakeland and the type of quality development needed in Lakeland.
Equally important, Askew Hargraves Harcourt and Associates (A2H) remodeled an existing building at Fletcher Trace and Davies Plantation. I believe the building was vacant for at least five years before A2H remodeled it for their officers. I recently had the pleasure of attending an art opening in the building and it is an outstanding example of re-use of an existing building and is also an excellent asset to Lakeland.
Our congratulations (and welcome!) to Askey Hargraves Harcourt and Associates and Renaissance Group for their confidence in the future of Lakeland and for their quality development. They are outstanding examples of the future of Lakeland “Where Quality of Life is a Way of Life”.
