AV Homes Celebrates Opening of Captiva Club Amenities Center at Vitalia

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/14 -- More than 400 Vitalia residents joined city and county officials, local visitors and real estate community and representatives from AV Homes for the June 19 ribbon cutting of the resort-style Captiva Club, the community hub and amenities center in Vitalia at Tradition. The ribbon-cutting ceremony attracted a large crowd eager to get a first glimpse inside the 55 and better community's 24,000-square-foot clubhouse and outdoor activity areas.

"The Captiva Club was designed as an all-in-one recreation center that complements the active lifestyles of Vitalia residents," said David Smith, Florida division president of AV Homes, which created the 452-acre Vitalia community within Tradition in Port St. Lucie. "It represents the next generation of club facilities for residents who want to be engaged, challenged and active in retirement."

The private, lakefront Captiva Club will offer a year-round calendar of fitness, recreation and social activities for Vitalia residents. The clubhouse features a fitness center, aerobics studio, cyber café, billiards and dart room, demonstration kitchen, and creative studio rooms. Outdoor facilities include a resort-style swimming pool, pickleball and bocce courts, tennis courts, a lakeside pavilion, a Grand Event Lawn with fire pits, and a future golf putting green.

"This facility and everything it offers to Vitalia residents is amazing," said Port St. Lucie Mayor JoAnn M. Faiella, among the county and city dignitaries attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony. "The Captiva Club demonstrates AV Homes' commitment to creating healthy, active lifestyles for our residents. It's an exciting new chapter for Vitalia."

Created as the heart of the Vitalia lifestyle, the Captiva Club will accommodate group fitness, social clubs and sports leagues and complement programs already in place, including golf and bowling outings, card and game nights, photography and art classes, and book clubs.

By the numbers, the Captiva Club offers eight pickleball courts, five tennis courts, two bocce courts, and a professionally maintained putting green, which is currently under construction. Its 24,000 square feet of interior space features the health club plus numerous gathering and meeting areas.

"Our residents often tell us they're busier now than when they were working," said Kraig Karmickle, vice president of Florida operations for AAM, which oversees property management at Vitalia. "The Captiva Club now gives them so many more options to enjoy an active lifestyle and expand their social circles."

Vitalia was created by AV Homes, a community developer and homebuilder recognized nationally for its award-winning community design, amenities and homes.

AV Homes introduced Vitalia in 2013 as the only age-restricted community for active adults 55 and better within the 8,300-acre Tradition in Port St. Lucie. Vitalia was created with the same meticulous planning and amenity-rich lifestyle that has earned Tradition more than 30 awards, including best master-planned community by the Florida Home Builders Association.

Emphasizing a coastal, resort-inspired lifestyle, Vitalia is only 14 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and located in a city consistently ranked nationally among the best places to live and retire. Nestled within a setting of lakes and nature preserves, Vitalia's neighborhoods and amenities are designed to foster a sense of community and camaraderie.

With golf carts and bicycles as the preferred mode of transportation, Vitalia offers a relaxed lifestyle, award-winning Mediterranean-inspired architecture and lush landscaping.

Vitalia residents also enjoy the amenities of Tradition, including the charming Tradition Square town center reminiscent of small-town America and offering shops, spas, salons, restaurants and venues for entertainment and concerts. Tradition, set within 400 acres of lakes, is also home to the new state-of-the-art Martin Health System Tradition Medical Center and Tradition Field, the spring training headquarters for the New York Mets and Florida League's St. Lucie Mets. Nearby is PGA Village, offering 54 holes of Tom Fazio- and Pete Dye-designed championship golf and the 35-acre PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance.

Vitalia offers nine Island, Beach and Coast collection floor plans, including two that earned the National Association of Home Builders' coveted Gold and Silver awards. The two- and three-bedroom home designs feature open floor plans, master suites with walk-in closets, freestanding kitchen islands and lanais within 1,460 to 2,456 square feet of living space.

Homes in Vitalia are priced from the $180,000s, with several models now open for viewing.
