Modern living in a newly developed, planned community, has become Florida's freshest approach to meet the needs of an ever-growing population. Brevard County's showcase community of contemporary design is Viera.
East Viera, which was the primary phase of development, has already flourished into a thriving metropolis. Although limited in area, Viera offers a multitude of recreational activities, shopping meccas, vast open space with nature trails, major medical facilities, highly rated schools, and over a dozen places of worship.
Duran Country Club and The Indian River Colony Club at Viera East are both pro-rated golf courses, with lush fairways, and velvety greens. Play a round at either course and be treated to the natural beauty of the Viera landscape, displaying many fairway homes, set back on lovely wooded lots. Viera also provides plenty of tennis courts. And many of the neighborhoods provide a community pool.
Viera's Regional Park is over a hundred acres of outdoor space, offering ball fields, exercise trails, pavilions for gatherings and events, basketball, tennis, and of course playgrounds for the little ones.
Another great part of living in Viera is being close to the county baseball stadium. Space Coast Stadium is the training facility for the Washington Nationals and the home field of the Florida Manatees minor league team.
Besides baseball, the stadium acts as a venue for many of the county's major events throughout the year.
The Avenue of Viera is the ultimate shopping experience. This modern open-air mall is one of Viera's main attractions. Dozens of stores can easily fill a full day of shopping, eating, and entertainment. A state-of-the-art theatre with sixteen screens, gourmet and casual dining, chic little shops, and large department stores all encircle the central park on the Avenue.
Just driving through Viera, you can't help but feel the freshness of a nice new city. A drive down Murrell Blvd. Renders a futuristic appeal of modern architecture, and urban planning. The major streets are even designed for stress-free driving with wide lanes to accommodate easy maneuvering.
Roads within the residential neighborhoods are clean and well-manicured, Pedestrians are given special attention in the planning of Viera, by the walking trail which connects all of Viera's groups of homes.
There are many types of homes in Viera, all strategically located to promote the type of lifestyle associated with each style. Near the center of town, and each village of Viera, there are multi-family homes ranging in a variety of designs. Condominiums, and apartments, are easy to find within walking distance of village amenities. Townhomes and multiplexes blend into cul-de-sacs of single-family residences and then into larger estate homes.
Each village provides itself with local shopping and community services to its occupants, giving each village within the city of Viera a cozy feeling of a small town. Western Viera has been planned, and although not yet complete, will be the finishing touch to complete the envisioned dream of planners and residents alike.
