Located in central Brevard County off Interstate 95, Viera is one of the Space Coast's newest communities. More than 9,000 people reside here, which once was mainly sod farms and cattle ranches. Since development started, Viera is growing by leaps and bounds. It is projected that by 2015, Viera will be a city of more than 40,000 residents. Two additional elementary schools have been built in Viera since 2003, and a new high school is under construction.
In addition to shopping centers, restaurants, and other conveniences, Viera is also known for its recreational retreats such as golf courses, parks, and nature preserves all located near neighborhoods. Other developments include the Veterans Administration Clinic, the Brevard County Government Services Complex, the Brevard County School District's administrative offices, just to name a few. Since 2002, new stores such as a Wal-Mart Super Center, Super Target and The Avenue Viera, a major new shopping center housing restaurants, a wide variety of stores, and a 16-screen, stadium seating movie theater.
Viera is also a great place for family fun. During the spring, Viera is home to the spring training complex of the Washington Nationals. And once the boys of summer have begun the regular season in Miami, Space Coast Stadium becomes home field for the Brevard County Manatees.
Whether you're looking for attractive desirable neighborhoods, great golf, or family fun, Viera has all that and more.
More than half of the population in Viera are over 50 years old. Many of the remaining half are couples with no children still at home and nearly a quarter of these households are single-person. They rank near the top for investments and savings. Residents in these communities own newer single-family homes or condominiums.
