PORT ST. LUCIE, FL — AVIVA Senior Living has announced AVIVA; the first independent-living senior residential community to be developed in St. Lucie West is now preleasing. St. Lucie West is a neighborhood in this city on Florida’s east coast, less than an hour north of West Palm Beach.
The rental community, which is under construction, is scheduled to open this summer on a 10-acre site minutes from the spring training home of the New York Mets, and PGA Village.
“AVIVA is designed to meet the growing demand by people 55+ who are seeking an independent-living rental community offering freedom from home maintenance and the financial responsibilities associated with home ownership,” said COO Chris Castell in a press release. “They want to travel, volunteer, pursue hobbies and interests and stay socially connected. The ability to live in a rental community with its ‘lock and leave’ feature is very desirable at this point in their lives.”
AVIVA features 159 one-bedroom, one-bedroom + den, and two-bedroom residences with resort-style amenities. The rental fee structure is all-inclusive, including dining, housekeeping, utilities, high-speed fiber optic wi-fi, transportation, and a full social, event, and outing schedule.
Residential apartments in AVIVA offer fully equipped kitchens with an island, a large walk-in closet, upgraded cabinets, washers and dryers, and screened-in porches. Hurricane-resistant windows and doors and an emergency generator provide safety, comfort, and peace of mind during storms.
“As a greater number of seniors are seeking a lifestyle that offers opportunities for social engagement and flexibility, downsizing from a single-family home is growing in popularity,” Castell added. “People want the availability and convenience of a clubhouse and amenities without community dues and assessments.”
AVIVA’s resort-style amenities include an outdoor swimming pool and sundeck, pickleball courts, walking trails, and a dog park. Indoor features include a full-service restaurant and bar, salon, fitness facilities, health services, a business center, club, and multi-function rooms.
The location of AVIVA is ideal with nearby shopping centers, multiple golf courses, dining options and entertainment. Medical facilities are readily available, and both the West Palm Beach and Vero airports are easily accessible. Port St. Lucie, a family-friendly city, is also known for environmental preserves, parks, marinas, and beaches. It is considered among the safest cities in the country, and U.S. News ranked it #3 as the best place to retire in the country.
