The designers used simple planning aspects, like an emphasis on front porches on the houses with garages accessed from the back alleys, as well as some more esoterical — like central greenspaces and and community buildings. Spanning more than 2,000 acres, Abacoa is designed using the precepts of the Traditional Neighborhood Development movement, weaving together homes, schools, shops, offices and 393 acres of open space parks into a single community, made up of different areas with unique personalities — each purposefully designed to help residents and visitors engage one another (and their surroundings) more closely and directly.
In Abacoa, it’s all about building and maintaining community — not in just keeping the landscaping neat and trim, but in organizing its residents to develop real, lasting relationships that can be built upon for mutual support. Whether riding with the bike club, tending to the community garden, joining in the the active theater group or visiting with other dog owners in the doggie play group, Abacoa has a community activity group for everyone.
Best of all, the integration of smaller residential neighborhoods with Abacoa’s own business districts means most everything you need is close by — no I-95 traffic to contend with. If you’re looking for exceptional value among Jupiter, Florida homes, and like the idea of a planned community with so much to offer, picking from among one of Abacoa‘s neighborhoods should be high on your list of considerations.
