The Viera area borders 8 miles (13 km) along Interstate 95 starting at exit 195 and extending south 3 miles (5 km) beyond exit 191. It encompasses 14,500 acres (5,900 ha). About half of this has been set aside for conservation.
The community consists of 58 neighborhoods in two areas named Viera East and Central Viera . Included are three adult communities, Brennity at Melbourne, Grand Isle, and Heritage Isle, along with a military retirement community, Indian River Colony Club.
The land was developed by the Viera Company, a subsidiary of A. Duda and Sons. On August 4, 1989, ground was broken for the new community of Viera, the name deriving from viera meaning “faith” in the Slovak language in honor of family patriarch Andrew Duda, who emigrated from what became Slovakia in 1912. Starting in 1990, the Duda family has owned the property along I-95 and began turning the Cocoa Ranch into a new town with a mix of land uses, including a variety of housing types, offices, medical and industrial parks, shopping centers and recreational facilities. The family has donated a total of 622.7 acres of land to various organizations.
