BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – After more than a year of pandemic-induced hiatus, the Space Coast Home Builders and Contractors Association’s Parade of Homes –Beautiful Homes Tour returns to inspire and impress with the latest trends in the housing industry.

Preparing entries for the Parade is no easy task, and Brevard’s currently sizzling real estate market needs little marketing effort, yet builders so believe in the event that they have energetically embraced the 2021 version.

“Despite the thriving market, builders see significant value in the Parade,” said Christina Slate, president of the HBCA. “It is a way for them to showcase their superior craftsmanship.”

Twenty-one entries from ten different builders offer consumers a close look at a variety of models and communities in a wide range of price points and at locations that span from Mims to Micco.

The Parade opens Oct. 1 and runs through the 10th, giving prospective homebuyers – and folks just starting to think about a new home – the chance to take in the newest ideas in design, style and comfort, from Zoom Rooms to energy-miser features.

The Showcase Home, a Parade fixture in years past, has expanded this year into the Showcase Community of Viera, which is putting out the red carpet for visitors to see the charms of the Space Coast’s fastest-growing town.

“As a Top 20 best-selling master-planned community, Viera continues to offer a wide variety of home styles in a range of prices from starter homes to multi-million-dollar estates, and everything in-between,” said Eva M. Rey, vice president, communications management and communications for The Viera Company.

“However, Viera is much more than just a community of houses.”

“As a Top 20 best-selling master-planned community, Viera continues to offer a wide variety of home styles in a range of prices from starter homes to multi-million-dollar estates, and everything in-between,” said Eva M. Rey, vice president, communications management and communications for The Viera Company.

Indeed, it is, for Viera encompasses a well-balanced community that offers A-rated schools, restaurants, world-class shopping, professional offices, hotels and state-of-the-art medical facilities.

“Viera also offers its residents a wide array of amenities, such as amazing parks with activities such as tennis, pickleball, volleyball, playgrounds, basketball, soccer and even outdoor hockey and rock climbing at the new La Roca Park,” added Rey.

For the 2021 Parade of Homes, The Viera Company has opted to focus on the rapidly growing regional commercial hubs that include Borrows West, Viera Town Center and the Pineda Interchange District, where motorists can catch a glimpse at the upcoming Costco.

“The store serves to be the first anchor in an important mixed-use interchange district,” said Viera Company president Todd Pokrywa.

“The Viera Company has made very significant regional infrastructure investments near the Pineda Interchange that allow us to be nimble in responding to residential and commercial demand. Costco is at the front door to over 3,000 acres of area west of I-95 slated for future development within the Viera master-planned community, with many projects and neighborhoods already in varying stages of planning, design, engineering, permitting and construction.”

“The Viera Company has made very significant regional infrastructure investments near the Pineda Interchange that allow us to be nimble in responding to residential and commercial demand,” said Viera Company president Todd Pokrywa.

At Borrows West, located at the corner of I-95 and Lake Andrew Blvd., a new urban-designed ACE Hardware and a locally owned and operated wine bar are in the works.

“There are many other opportunities within Borrows West for waterfront dining next to the linear park around the lake, hotel and hospitality development, professional and medical offices and multi-family residential,” said Rey.

Viera Town Center is also experiencing robust growth, with the six-story, residential-over retail project Luna currently under construction and The Pearl, a multi-family project, nearing completion.

“Also on the horizon are retail, professional office space and the northern extension of the Viera Town Center Park, where there is planned entertainment, experiential food offerings and recreational options for everyone,” said Rey.

Several of the Parade models are located within Viera, including Viera Builders’ Serrano Collection at Reeling Park, and two Christopher Burton Luxury Homes models at luxurious Adelaide and Elan Builders’ ultra-contemporary homes at Modern Duran.

The jewel in the crown of the 2021 Parade, the $3.5 million, Ocean Pearl by Joyal Homes. The residence will be one of the virtual entries, a feature that allows homebuyers a look-see without leaving home.

THE HBCA’S PARADE OF HOMES – BEAUTIFUL HOMES TOUR features 21 entries from ten different builders, offering consumers a close look at a variety of models and communities in a wide range of price points and at locations that span from Mims to Micco.

The bricks-and-mortar part of the Parade offers everything from well-built, first-time homes and affordable empty nesters’ nests in the $200 to $300 price bracket to luxurious residences well north of a million dollars.

For example, Holiday Builders’ King single-family home at Gulfport Key is priced at $282,990, while the Andros in Viera’s prestigious Adelaide community carries a price tag of $3,370,625. The Catalina, another Burton entry in Adelaide, is $1,691,700.

Touring the Parade can be a multi-day adventure, or just simply a visit or two.

“Some people go to all the entries, while others just go to a few,” said Slate.

Parade of Homes models open at noon on Sunday and at 10 a.m. the rest of the week. For more information and location of homes, visit ParadeofHomesBrevard.com or HBCA-revard.org.
