Construction underway on The Venue at Viera senior living facility

Construction on The Venue at Viera is underway off Wickham Road, just west of Stadium Parkway.

The Venue, a new senior living facility, located off Wickham Road just west of Stadium Parkway, is slated to open this winter.

The facility in totality will have 145 units, according to Debbie Gentry, the operations director with Concord Management, a property management company.

Some of those units are part of a large, four-story building, Gentry said. Others will be part of nine one-story villas.

Gentry added that the units include one-bedroom, two-bedroom and two-bedroom with den apartments. A sign on the property shows that one-bedroom units will range in price from $820 to $1,039 per month, which Gentry said includes an optional washer-dryer and one reserved parking space.

Two-bedroom units will range from $967 to $1,311 and two-bedroom with den apartments will range between $1,109 to $1,469.

Amenities at the facility, according to the Venue’s website, include a business center, heart-healthy cardio and fitness studio and a clubhouse replete with a collector’s edition 1965 Ford Mustang pool table.

Though an exact opening date is not known, Gentry said she is hopeful the complex will open in January.

Gentry said that Concord, which has "over 100 apartment communities," chose Viera for the project because of its proximity to medical facilities and places such as The Avenue Viera.

"We love the Viera area," Gentry added. "…. Everything is just so close."

Gentry added that applications for residency opened Aug. 1 for those who wish to apply. Those interested in doing so or learning more, can go to venueatvieraseniorliving.com
