During this period, Englewood served historical Pensacola with variety upscale housing developments which provided luxuries unavailable in crowded downtown Pensacola.

The district is served by two major institutional anchors including Baptist Hospital and its sister organization, the Lakeview Center, as well as, a variety of commercial uses along its four primary corridors which include Fairfield Avenue, “E” Street, “W” Street and Pace Boulevard.
