During the last 50 years, most of the development in South Florida has been limited to single use zoning where housing was separate from businesses and schools and all were inter-connected by highways requiring the use of cars to navigate between them. Abacoa in Jupiter was designed to return the “work, live, play in one place” idea, so popular in years gone by, to the mainstream of family life.
In the center of Abacoa is the Village at Abacoa Town Center where condominiums provide residents with the opportunity to live above or very near the retails businesses and other venues that would form the fabric of their lives such as college campuses, a golf course, a baseball stadium and restaurants. There are 350 condos in the Village at Abacoa Town Center utilizing 14 different floor plans. Some of these buildings are free standing and others located above the retail shops and restaurants along Main Street. With so many different floor plans, living areas range from around 1,000 feet to around 1,600 feet.
Abacoa Town Center hosts many community events like a weekly Farmer’s Market, a monthly Classic Car Show and in addition Abacoa has many neighborhood civic groups that meet in the Town Center.
Four schools are located in or adjacent to Abacoa: Beacon Cove Intermediate School, Independence Middle School, Lighthouse Elementary School and Jupiter Middle School. The high schools nearby are Jupiter High School and Dwyer High School and all of these schools are part of the Palm Beach County School District. In addition, Abacoa is home to the Jupiter branch campus of Florida Atlantic University and the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College.
The central location in Jupiter means residents here have only a 10 minute drive to reach the beaches of Jupiter or Juno and only 10 minutes to the shopping and dining of Palm Beach Gardens.
