Abacoa is a 2,055 acre development consisting of fifteen family based communities consisting of townhomes, condos, and single family homes. In response to the suburban sprawl found in most of South Florida, Abacoa was planned to integrate work, live, play into a community of mixed use zoning and bringing all facets of community life together in one place. A central part of the mixed use zoning is the work/live concept where your home office is included as a part of your residence. Antigua in Abacoa provides this and more.
Antigua features two and three story townhomes in the heart of Abacoa and offering work/live units. The 280 units range in size from about 1,300 to over 2,400 square feet and were built in 2004-2005 so they are some of the newest homes in Abacoa.
If the central idea behind a carefully planned community like Abacoa is to live, work and play in the same area, then Antigua captures the spirit of this lifestyle. Located adjacent to the Roger Dean Stadium you can catch the Florida Marlins or the St. Louis Cardinals during spring training or the Jupiter Hammerheads who play here after the major league teams leave. The Abacoa Town Center is less than a ¼ mile away with restaurants and small retail shops. Other activity in town centers around the Abacoa Golf Club.
Students at Florida Atlantic University or the Honors Campus may find the homes in Antigua a perfect spot to live while attending. Other business opportunities include Scripps Institute and the Max Planck Society as well as G4S which all make their home in the Abacoa area.
You might want to consider Antigua if a central location is important to you, if being able to head to school without using a car or if you have a home based business.
