By Space Coast Daily // January 21, 2020
Viera ranked 22nd and 24th of the Top 50 Master-Planned Communities in the nation for 2019
BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – John Burns Real Estate Consulting, LLC and RCLCO Real Estate Advisors have released their list of the Top 50 Master-Planned Communities across the United States.
Viera, Florida has once again been ranked within the top 25 master-planned communities in the nation on both lists.
Both organizations base their top 50 rankings on high-performing master-planned communities and new home sales within the community.
Consultants provide feedback from industry contacts that support the research, which goes into producing the prestigious annual rankings.
Gregg Logan, author of the RCLCO study, observed that “Having sales up 8% in Viera in 2019 is reflective of the recovering Brevard County economy and the Space Coast as an economic driver for Central Florida. Viera is perceived as the best in Brevard for people moving into the county. The parks, amenities, open spaces, and the lifestyle – Viera’s most attractive amenity – make Viera a great place to live.”
Lesley Deutch, Principal with John Burns Real Estate Consulting, also credited Viera’s growth and success to the revived space industry.
“Viera continues to benefit from the expansion of the space industry – both private and government-funded space programs. 2019 saw the move of Boeing’s Space and Launch Division Headquarters, as well as expansions by Blue Origin, SpaceX, Firefly Aerospace, United Space Alliance and others,” said Deutch.
“Housing demand from space-industry workers is apparent in both the for-sale and apartment market.”
In 2019, Viera witnessed significant community, educational and recreational enhancements with the groundbreaking of a new Viera area elementary school, construction of Pinecrest Academy Space Coast K-8 charter school, expansion of the existing Viera Charter School, leasing of the luxury Centre Pointe Apartments in the Viera Town Center, opening of The Park at Adelaide – a private enclave of 24 exclusive homesites – as well as additional Addison Village neighborhoods featuring new homes from Viera Builders and completion of the highly anticipated resort-style amenity center, Addison Village Club.
Also, the opening of the new interchange at I-95 and Viera Boulevard at Exit 193 and the Viera Boulevard widening from east of Murrell Road toward U.S. Highway 1 made 2019 a big year for infrastructure improvements that provide greater accessibility for residents, business owners and visitors to Viera.
The master-planned community of Viera showcases over 100 miles of multi-use trails, access to wetland and conservation areas, numerous community and neighborhood parks, unique shopping and dining options, A-rated schools, and recreational opportunities.
Located in the heart of Brevard County with multiple access points to I-95 and situated between two international airports, Viera’s accessibility for local businesses and residents alike makes it an enhanced location to many key destinations.
Viera also offers popular amenities such as The Avenue Viera, Brevard Zoo, Space Coast Daily Park, USSSA Space Coast Stadium Complex, the award-winning Duran Golf Club, quality medical services, and multiple places of worship all within minutes of every home.
The Viera Company’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Community Development, Scott Miller, describes the annual MPC rankings as, “Key benchmarks that measure how Viera customers are essentially grading the decisions that The Viera Company makes in developing Viera.”
Miller explains, “The MPC rankings also help us evaluate Viera’s success on a state and national level and seeing Viera continue to rise in these rankings validates our core belief that continually striving to maintain the vision of avoiding the status quo and seeking out and integrating best practices from across the country is working.”
“Viera is a truly multi-generational community, attracting a wide range of buyers – from young families to retirees. The master-planned community offers a wide range of home products and neighborhoods to appeal to all types of buyers, and also benefits from easy access to local employment, retail and entertainment amenities. Viera also offers a great quality of life. Buyers in today’s housing market are seeking a sense of community for their next home and Viera offers a distinct, clear sense of place which will continue to drive interest and home sales in the future” stated Deutch.
