One of the most celebrated master planned communities in the country, Viera sits at the geographical heart of the county, with convenient access to beaches, Orlando, the Melbourne high-tech corridor and Kennedy Space Center. An incredible mix of residential neighborhoods, The Avenue Viera, one of the most attractive shopping areas in the region, along with the county government, school board and judicial centers, all connected by a masterfully designed system of over 100 miles of walking and bicycle trails.
This amazing community, that is bordered on the west by the St. John’s River and the 5,300 acre Viera Wilderness Park, is also home to the beautiful Duran Golf Club and Development Center. On any weekend you will find Little League baseball or soccer teams for all ages, playing at the spacious Viera Regional Park or people visiting the very popular Brevard Zoo, just east of I-95.
“Viera is different from other communities in Brevard, in Florida and the nation due to its adherence to a core vision and commitment to all stakeholders to continually evolve and enhance our community,” Scott Miller, Viera’s senior vice president of sales and community development, said. Then added, “The fact that Viera has a single developer, with a heritage of land stewardship, shows in how we develop. [The Viera Company is a subsidiary of the sixth-generation, family owned, agricultural firm A. Duda & Sons.] In addition, with so many committed and long-term employees, we have been able to maintain our commitment to our core beliefs.”
Todd Pokrywa the president of The Viera Company described the process that goes into the community’s planning and development. “We are very deliberate to ensure that each new element is positioned to add value to both what we have done and what we plan to do next. We continue to seek out best practices from across the country to innovate, as the community embarks on its next phases of development,” he said.
Today, the community of Viera has evolved in providing a greater mix of product types and uses, which enhances its desirably and has led to the community being consistently ranked within the top 25 best-selling master planned communities in the country during the last several years. Today, Viera is home to over 27,000 residents, more than 12,000 homes and 10,000 plus employees, working in approximately 725 businesses. Yet, the community is not even halfway built out, after celebrating the 30th anniversary of Viera’s groundbreaking last year.
