FULFILLING THE VISION
This next area of Viera will complete the community and fulfill the vision to exceed the quality of life values sought by its new residents.
The Viera Company developed the plan for West Viera utilizing smart growth principles. The result is a unique four-village concept in which each Village consists of connected, walkable neighborhoods with easy access to shopping and services. Each village center is envisioned to contain office, residential and retail space constructed in a compact fashion with reduced setbacks to encourage walkability and community life. A diversity of housing styles and living environments will include flats and townhomes closer to the village center, and single family homes on larger lots toward the edges of the village. All homes will connect to the village centers with sidewalks or trails.
The balance of West Viera will consist of permanent open space, a significant feature of the West Viera area. The 5,112-acre Viera Wilderness Park provides wetland preservation and long-term habitat for many of the area’s native birds and animals and will be managed in accordance with an approved Habitat Management Plan. The park will be adjacent to the state’s 44,000-acre River Lakes Conservation Area which protects the St. Johns River floodplain and offers many opportunities for hiking and witnessing Florida’s natural beauty.
The first village is located just to the south of the Health First Viera Health Park and will include the existing ‘A’-rated Quest Elementary School and convenient access to Viera’s existing shopping districts on Lake Andrew Drive and Wickham Road.
