Port Saint Lucie Real Estate

The city of Port St. Lucie is located in St. Lucie County, Florida, to the south of Fort Pierce and to the north of Stuart, about 50 miles north of West Palm Beach and halfway between Miami and Orlando. With over 166,000 residents, Port St. Lucie is Florida's ninth largest city by population. Unlike many of its South Florida neighbors, Port St. Lucie is a young city just beginning to hit its stride.

Having begun its growth in earnest in the 1990s, Port St. Lucie expanded westward with two large developments, St. Lucie West and Tradition. Businesses and recreation opportunities arrived quickly, creating thousands of jobs in the area. The development known as Tradition offered over ten million square feet of commercial space and over 18,000 residences. Tradition, as its name implies, is modeled after the ideal 1950s-era American town. At the town center, Tradition Square is a gathering spot for festivals and celebrations. The community has been chosen as the site of HGTV's Green Home in 2009, and one of America's best 100 communities.

Despite nationwide economic struggles, the communities of Port St. Lucie have found themselves in a position to continue development. The Florida Center of Innovation, a research laboratory campus that is home to two biotech companies, the Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies and the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute, recently moved to Port St. Lucie and is expected to bring more than 30,000 jobs to the city. Digital Domain Media Group brought its sister company, Tradition Studios. The city has its own public school district, and several colleges and universities have their campuses nearby. Homes in Port St. Lucie are a great value; the city continues to be a friendly, safe, community with plenty of room for growth.

The city hosts a weekly Green Market, festivals and a variety of music and art events. The subtropical South Florida climate makes outdoor life easy. With its many waterways, fishing and boating are popular pastimes in Port St. Lucie, along with surfing, canoeing, kayaking, sailing and windsurfing. Thirty-nine public parks, a civic center, community centers, a state preserve, walking trails and two boat ramp parks accessing the St. Lucie River provide opportunities to appreciate the area's natural resources. Golfers can rejoice: The Professional Golf Association has a home in Port St. Lucie at PGA Village. Port St. Lucie is also the home to New York Mets Spring Training, the St. Lucie Mets Florida State League team and the Mets rookie level team in the Gulf Coast League.
