Space Coast City Spotlight: Viera

Space Coast City Spotlight: Viera

In the heart of the Space Coast, you’ll find the 16th top-selling master planned community in the nation. Viera, an A. Duda & Sons Company vision, celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2019. In those 30 years, The Viera Company has defined what it means to build a thriving community, with all the extras residents desire. Viera is the hub of the Space Coast for many reasons other than its central location, and the most exciting part of it all, Viera is really just getting started. 

Discover more below on what it is like to live, work, and play in this master-planned oasis that is easy to call home, sweet home. 


The Space Coast is known for its diverse lifestyle options, providing something for every walk of life. As Viera sits in the heart of it all, the community defines the meaning of diverse with endless housing options among countless expansive neighborhoods. Viera Builders, the core builder in the Viera community, is currently offering homes at 1,400-square-feet, to nearly 4,000-square-feet, all of which include a trip to their design studio to make your home truly yours. If urban living with walkable amenities is your style, Viera has that too. With world-class apartments and town homes a short walk to shops, restaurants, parks and more, the possibilities are endless. Of course, you can always fully adopt the Florida lifestyle and get a golf cart for cruising the town. The cherry on top – all Viera residents have access to the Addison Village Club, a new 10.45 acre amenity center providing social and recreational activities ranging from a family pool with a water zone, to a croquet and event lawn.

You know what they say – location, location, location, and Viera has it. Viera is in the heart of the Space Coast, making it an easy commute to major employers from one end of the Space Coast to the other. And that commute keeps getting easier. Several easy access points to I-95, including a brand-new exit, plus new interchanges, are adding more and more options for residents. The completion of the Lake Andrew Drive and Pineda Causeway extensions on May 5, 2021 opened over 3,000 acres of future development area that is in varying stages of planning, design, engineering, permitting and construction. This includes a new Costco site, Viera’s latest development area with planned residential, commercial and retail uses.  This knock-out combination provides an unmatched quality of life with a world-class career.


The Avenue Viera, a modern open-air mall with a wide variety of stores and restaurants, is more than just a place to shop a sale. Spend some time with the family playing outdoor games or visit its Central Park to hear live music. Make it a date night with a visit to one of its many restaurants, including a local favorite, 28 North Gastropub, a scratch kitchen Gastropub offering chef curated menus and innovative craft cocktails. The USSSA Space Coast Complex is 85 acres of state-of-the-art AstroTurf, and home to the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) Pride. Get tickets to one of the many sporting events or watch their calendar for specialty events hosted throughout the year. The Viera Wetlands is 200 acres of wildlife exploration providing great opportunities for birding and eco-tourism. Accessible by foot and bike, visitors enjoy an up-close look at the best of mother nature. Speaking of mother nature, there is nothing better than a stop at the award-winning Brevard Zoo. A USA Today Readers’ Choice, this zoo takes the word ‘attraction’ to a whole new level. Get face-to-face with gentle giants at their giraffe feedings, stand side-by-side with kangaroos in their open walk-through exhibit, or enjoy a guided kayaking tour gliding by giraffes, rhinos, lemurs and more (additional costs may apply). Plus, Brevard Zoo is home to Treetop Trek, an explorers-seeking aerial adventure traversing through trees and canopies offering birds-eye views on the residents (ahem, animals). With 9 zip lines (including over ‘crocs and ‘gators!) and courses for all ages, Treetop Trek is a new adventure every time. 


When we say things are really just getting started in Viera, we mean it. Borrows West is Viera’s 115-acre +/- mixed-use hub with best-in-market accessibility, visibility and convenience. This new gateway to Central Viera offers urban-style site amenities that accent the vibrant, thriving lifestyle found here. Office buildings, waterfront dining venues, retail, entertainment venues, hotel, and multi-family opportunities surround a scenic lake with a bordering walking trail and a unique linear park with a modern flair. The Viera Town Center sits directly across the street from The Avenue Viera and will boast over 600,000-square-feet of outdoor lifestyle center options on 62 acres. This central gathering place will provide residents with new hotels, retail stores, restaurants, apartments, and a central park with an amphitheater.
